To assist the reader, this volume's editor provides a brief overview to introduce each of the separate topics. Topics focus on the multiple pledge-of-shares problem; the preferred creditor status; breach of contract coverage in infrastructure projects, and OPIC modified expropriation coverage (using an Indonesian case study); securitizing political risk insurance; and cooperation, competition, and the "science of pricing" in the political risk insurance marketplace.

Improving effectiveness and outcomes for the poor in health, nutrition, and population : an evaluation of World Bank Group support since 1997 by World Bank( Book )

This study evaluates the effectiveness of the World Bank Group's support for health, nutrition, and population (HNP) in developing countries from 1997 to 2008 - totaling more than 17 billion - and distills lessons for greater impact in the future. It finds that the Bank Group now funds a smaller share of global support for HNP than a decade ago, but its support remains substantial and adds considerable value. About two-thirds of the Bank's HNP support has had satisfactory outcomes, often in difficult environments

Poverty reduction support credits : an evaluation of World Bank support by The World Bank( Book )

4 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 91 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This evaluation examines the relevance and effectiveness of Poverty Reduction Support Credits (PRSCs), introduced by the Bank in early 2001 to support comprehensive growth, improve social conditions, and reduce poverty in IDA countries. PRSCs were intended to allow greater country-ownership, provide more predictable annual support, exhibit more flexible conditionality, and strengthen budget processes in a results-based framework. By September 2009, the Bank had approved 99 PRSCs totaling some 7.5 billion and representing 38% percent of IDA policy based lending. The evaluation finds that in ter
Improving municipal management for cities to succeed : an IEG special study by World Bank( Book )

6 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 85 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Cities now house half the world's population and produce 70 percent of its GDP. Managing them well helps development. Strengthening municipal management of planning, finance, and service provision has been at the core of World Bank support through municipal development projects (MDPs). This book reviews how, worldwide, nearly 3,000 municipalities have benefitted from 190 World Bank-supported MDPs over the past decade, three quarters of which achieved satisfactory outcomes. The finance dimension of MDPs-computerized accounting, revenue generation, and municipal credit-produced some of the best results, but weaker outcomes came from attempts to stimulate private finance of municipal services. City planning, used by municipalities worldwide, was not a strong priority for MDPs. But building municipal information systems, for example in Chile, were successful. Monitoring and evaluation rarely worked well, except when municipalities themselves were convinced of its usefulness, such as in Russia, Tunisia, and Colombia. Results in managing service provision were mixed. The poverty focus of MDPs was strikingly weak across the portfolio. Cost-benefit analysis rarely prioritized municipal investments. But MDPs helped municipalities strengthen their procurement function. MDPs helped municipalities manage services more effectively. Better results still can come from a stronger poverty focus, more attention to planning and prioritizating investments, and more effective operation and maintenance of such investments
2009 world investment and political risk by World Bank Group( Book )

6 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 84 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Over one year into its deepest global financial crisis in the post-war era, the world economy is entering a phase of economic recovery and financial stabilization. Financial market conditions are signaling much improved investor confidence and a revival of risk appetite for emerging markets. Yet concerns over political risks are high. As part of its mandate to encourage investment to developing countries, the Multilateral Investment Guarantee Agency (MIGA) seeks to foster more understanding of the role of political risk, and instruments to mitigate it. The objective for this report is to examine (i) overall trends in political risk perceptions, and how they relate to financial flows -- particularly foreign direct investment (FDI) -- to emerging markets, (ii) corporate views on foreign investment intentions and the political risk environment in emerging markets, in the context of the financial crisis (iii) whether the political risk insurance (PRI) industry is well positioned to deal with the fallout from the crisis, as well as longer-term shifts in demand for political risk guarantees. Given MIGA's mandate and the growing weight of emerging markets as a source of FDI, particular attention was paid to South-based investors and PRI providers in the general analysis."--Publisher's website
