Reforming public institutions and strengthening governance : a World Bank strategy by World Bank( )

1 edition published in 2000 in English and held by 303 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The purpose of this report is to assess progress to date in implementing the World Bank's strategy for governance and public sector reform, Reforming Public Institutions and Strengthening Governance: A World Bank Strategy. It is organized according to the goals and commitments laid out in the Strategy itself, to allow readers to track to what extent the Strategy is being implemented. Part I synthesizes progress and issues across the Bank, while Part II highlights specific challenges and approaches of individual Regions, the Development Research Group, and World Bank Institute. The treatment of governance issues and the focus on institution building in Country Assistance Strategies (CASs) and Bank programs have increased steadily over the past four years. Almost all recent CASs diagnose the governance situation in the relevant country, and lending for governance and institution building has increased significantly. Operations Evaluation Department and Quality Assurance Group ratings indicate that the quality of the public sector portfolio has improved considerably and that the number of projects at risk has fallen

Preserving nature in the national parks : a history by Richard West Sellars( )

1 edition published in 1997 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book traces the epic clash of values between traditional scenery-and-tourism management and emerging ecological concepts in the national parks, America’s most treasured landscapes. It spans the period from the creation of Yellowstone National Park in 1872 to near the present, analyzing the management of fires, predators, elk, bear, and other natural phenomena in parks such as Yellowstone, Yosemite, Grand Canyon, and Great Smoky Mountains.Based largely on original documents never before researched, this is the most thorough history of the national parks ever written. Focusing on the decades after the National Park Service was established in 1916, the author reveals the dynamics of policy formulation and change, as landscape architects, foresters, wildlife biologists, and other Park Service professionals contended for dominance and shaped the attitudes and culture of the Service. The book provides a fresh look at the national parks and an analysis of why the Service has not responded in full faith to the environmental concerns of recent times.Richard West Sellars, a historian with the National Park Service, has become uniquely familiar with the history, culture, and dynamics of the Service-including its biases, internal alliances and rivalries, self-image, folklore, and rhetoric. The book will prove indispensable for environmental and governmental specialists and for general readers seeking an in-depth analysis of one of America’s most admired federal bureaus
