Hazards of nature, risks to development an IEG evaluation of World Bank assistance for natural disasters by World Bank( )

9 editions published in 2006 in English and Undetermined and held by 659 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The World Bank's Independent Evaluation Group examined the World Bank's experience in disaster prevention and response over the past 20 years and found that the scale of Bank operations has grown over the period. The report found that the Bank has demonstrated considerable flexibility in its approach, but actions have tended to be more reactive than proactive, with disaster response taking more of the focus that preventative measures

Debt Relief for the Poorest an Evaluation Update of the HIPC Initiative by Shonar Lala( )

9 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 486 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This study evaluates progress under the HIPC initiative since IEG's 2003 evaluation. It finds that the Enhanced HIPC initiative cut debt ratios in half for 18 countries, but in eight of these countries, the ratios have come to once again exceed HIPC thresholds. Debt reduction alone is not a sufficient instrument to affect the multiple drivers of debt sustainability. Sustained improvements in export diversification, fiscal management, the terms of new financing, and public debt management are also needed, measures that fall outside the ambit of the HIPC initiative

Independent evaluation of IFC's development results 2007 lessons and implications from 10 years of experience by World Bank( )

11 editions published between 2007 and 2008 in English and held by 430 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

As part of the World Bank Group, IFC's overriding objective is to help reduce poverty and support sustainable development in developing countries. IFC pursues this mission by supporting the private sector to create jobs and simulate markets. This report, which assesses the impact of IFC toward that mission, appears at a time of unprecedented levels of private investment in the emerging markets. The report takes a look back at the development results that the IFC-supported projects have achieved in the last 10 years, the main lessons that have emerged at the project level and the strategic impl
A decade of action in transport an evaluation of World Bank assistance to the transport sector, 1995-2005 by World Bank( )

10 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 424 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The World Bank committed 30.6 billion in transport-related projects during the past decade, making it one of the largest sectors. The evaluation looks into the Bank's experience in the sector, and assesses the institution's interventions, the impact of rapid transport sector expansion, and its readiness to meet the challenges ahead
Development results in middle-income countries an evaluation of the World Bank's support by World Bank( )

10 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 423 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The World Bank's support in fostering growth and reducing poverty has contributed to the considerable economic success of MIC countries. But to produce greater development benefits, it has to become more agile and draw upon MICs' own capacity much more systematically, connecting such capabilities to help low-income countries and to tackle global challenges. The Bank's work has to more clearly demonstrate best practice to deliver impact beyond its limited direct role
From schooling access to learning outcomes, an unfinished agenda an evaluation of World Bank support to primary education by H. Dean Nielsen( )

7 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 421 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Education for All (EFA) movement, launched in 1990, has resulted in an extraordinary mobilization of World Bank and country resources in support of basic education over the past 15 years. World Bank EFA financing, mostly focused on primary education, has become increasingly progressive, targeting the most disadvantaged countries and often the disadvantaged within countries. In most parts of the world, Bank and country investments have led to significantly improved access to primary education through the construction of new schools and the reduction of other physical, financial, and social barriers. Nevertheless, tens of millions of children in the developing world--mostly girls, the poor, and other disadvantaged--remain out of school, hundreds of millions drop out before completing primary school, and of those who do complete, a large proportion fail to acquire desired levels of knowledge and skills, especially in the poorest countries of South Asia and Sub-Saharan Africa. Beyond achieving universal completion of primary education, a Millennium Development Goal (MDG), the remaining EFA challenge is to ensure that all children, particularly the disadvantaged, acquire the basic knowledge and skills that are crucial for poverty reduction. Over the years of Bank support for EFA and its world conferences in 1990 and 2000, the Bank's policy objectives for increased support to primary education have been simple and remarkably stable: universal primary school completion, equality of access for girls and other disadvantaged groups, and improved student learning outcomes. This Independent Evaluation Group (IEG) evaluation was mounted to assess the extent to which these objectives have been met in countries supported by the Bank. The main objectives of the evaluation were to assess World Bank assistance to countries in their efforts to improve their basic knowledge and skills base through the provision of quality primary education, and to provide lessons for countries in their development strategies and for the Bank in its support to those strategies
World Bank assistance to agriculture in Sub-Saharan Africa an IEG review( )

8 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 412 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Sub-Saharan Africa is a critical development priority-it has some of the world's poorest countries and during the past two decades the number of poor in the Region has doubled, to 300 million-more than 40 percent of the Region's population. Africa remains behind on most of the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) and is unlikely to reach them by 2015. With some of the world's poorest countries, Africa is a development priority for the donor community. A major drag on Africa's development is the underperformance of the critical agriculture sector, which has been neglected both by donors and gove
Public sector reform what works and why? : an IEG evaluation of World Bank support by World Bank( )

7 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 411 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The effectiveness and efficiency of a country's public sector is vital to the success of development activities, including those the World Bank supports. Sound financial management, an efficient civil service and administrative policy, efficient and fair collection of taxes, and transparent operations that are relatively free of corruption all contribute to good delivery of public services. The Bank has devoted an increasing share of its lending and advisory support to the reform of central governments, so it is important to understand what is working, what needs improvement, and what is missi
The World Bank in Turkey, 1993-2004 an IEG country evaluation by Basil Kavalsky( )

8 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 405 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

It looks at the Bankʹs contribution to the achievement of those outcomes and the lessons for the Bankʹs future activities both in Turkey and more broadly. The evaluation has included a review of relevant documents, complemented by interviews with the staff of the Bank and other key donors, as well as representatives of the Government, NGOs, and civil society. -- from Preface (p. v)

An impact evaluation of India's second and third Andhra Pradesh irrigation projects a case of poverty reduction with low economic returns by Howard White( )

7 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 399 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Independent Evaluation Group (IEG) of the World Bank has undertaken impact evaluations of the Bank?s support to irrigation in Andhra Pradesh, India (under AP Irrigation II and III), and of the U.K. Department for International Development supported Rural Livelihoods Project (RLP). This is one of a series of IEG impact evaluations (see appendix H). IEG?s program of impact evaluation is in part carried out under a Department for International Development?IEG partnership agreement; hence the focus on RLP. However, survey villages are also covered by the Bank supported DPIP project, so that the
The welfare impact of rural electrification a reassessment of the costs and benefits ; an IEG impact evaluation by World Bank( )

10 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 399 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Rural electrification can have many benefits-not only bringing lighting, but improving the quality of health care, spreading information and supporting productive enterprises. The extent of these benefits has been questioned, arguing that they may be insufficient to justify the investment costs. This book quantifies these benefits. It finds that the benefits can indeed be high, substantially outweighing the costs, and that consumer willingness to pay is generally sufficient to achieve financial sustainability. However, benefits could be increased further by providing smart subsidies to assist

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

7 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 396 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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
