The political economy of policy reform : issues and implications of policy dialogue and development operations ( Book )
2 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 2 libraries worldwide
This study addresses the political economy of sector reforms. Sustainable reform processes which improve equity, efficiency and effectiveness in key economic and social sectors are often important elements of national poverty reduction strategies in low- and middle-income countries. For international development agencies wishing to engage in these processes, understanding the significance of power relations within the sector, vested interests, and the links to national political processes can be critical to being an effective actor in policy dialogue. This study explores these issues through the analysis of case studies of World Bank engagement in two areas: agricultural liberalization, and public-private partnerships in water supply and sanitation. The objectives of the study are twofold: (a) to analyze the political economy of reform by looking at stakeholder interests, incentives, institutions, risks, opportunities, and processes from a social analysis perspective; and (b) to illustrate 'what works, why and how' for a better understanding and management of political economy issues in the design and implementation of reforms and development operations. The study draws on operational experiences to inductively develop a conceptual framework that offers an innovative way to look at the political economy of policy reforms. The study presents a solid basis for a future program of work which can address these issues
Local government taxation reform in Tanzania : a poverty and social impact analysis (PSIA) : report on economic and sector work ( Book )
2 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 1 library worldwide
The 2005 Tanzania poverty and social impact analysis (PSIA) on local government tax reform was designed to examine the intended and unintended consequences on poverty reduction and growth in Tanzania of the tax reforms implemented in June 2003 and 2004. The main elements of the reform were the abolition of the flat rate development levy in 2003 along with nuisance taxes, and the abolition of business license fees for enterprises below a certain size and capping of those fees for larger enterprises in 2004. This PSIA had two principal aims: (a) to assess the distribution of the tax burden across different social and income groups and small businesses before and after the reforms; and (b) to inform other initiatives directed at fiscal policy reform in the context of Tanzania's decentralization
Yemen's water sector reform program : a poverty and social impact analysis (PSIA) ( Book )
2 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 1 library worldwide
This paper presents the findings of a Poverty and Social Impact Analysis (PSIA) of Yemen's water sector reform program. PSIA is the analysis of the distributional impacts of policy reforms on the well-being or welfare of different stakeholder groups, with a particular focus on the poor and vulnerable. PSIA also examines vested interests to assess issues of sustainability and risk in policy reform. Among other analyses, the study builds on the Yemen Country Water Resource Assistance Strategy (CWRAS, World Bank 2005a) and the Country Social Analysis (CSA, World Bank 2006a). The CWRAS had identified the political economy as main constraint to water sector reform. The CSA assessed livelihoods and power relations in Yemeni society, and called specifically for a poverty and social impact analysis in the water sector. The PSIA recommendations, which address the above key messages, will be implemented through the NWSSIP Update and operations

This paper lays out how social development can help enhance the quality of infrastructure operations and avoid potential risks. This note (1) reviews major challenges for sustainable infrastructure, (2) outlines how social development approaches help meet those challenges, (3) briefly highlights the main social development analytic and operational tools, and (4) provides on-the ground operational examples to demonstrate social development at work. With an overarching focus on inclusion, governance, and managing social and political risk, Social Development specialists work with task teams on five key areas: 1. Improve people's access and promote social inclusion; 2. Mitigate adverse impacts and manage political and social risks; 3. Enhance governance and reduce corruption through voice and participation; 4. Promote inclusion of the most vulnerable and protect involuntarily displaced and Indigenous Peoples; and 5. Reduce risks in post conflict and potential conflict settings
Social analysis in the urban sector : a guidance note ( Book )
2 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 1 library worldwide
This note begins by examining these three major aspects of the urban social challenge: the urbanization of poverty, the role of civic participation, and the critical importance of governance. It then examines specific social challenges related to seven aspects of the urban portfolio: settlement interventions, the formalization of secure tenure, conflict in urban environments, disaster mitigation and recovery, solid waste management, HIV/AIDS, and cultural heritage. It then reviews the analytical framework for urban social analysis including a list of five social entry points (equality of opportunity and access, genuine participation, strong institutions, social risk management, and social impact monitoring and evaluation) that can be explored in any urban context. And finally it outlines the actual process of integrating social analysis in the project cycle
