Long Description
Country Assistance Reviews (CARs) are evaluations that take the country as the unit of account and concentrate on the relevance, efficacy, and efficiency of the Bank�s overall program of assistance, as well as its sustainability and its impact on institutional development. This CAR examines World Bank assistance to the Philippines since 1986, a turning point in the economic and social policy landscape of that country. The CAR is selective as to time span, instruments, sectors, and issues covered. The focus is on issues that remain relevant today for government and Bank decisionmakers.
Long Description
While energy is essential for development, standard fossil fuels are often in short supply in countries where it is needed most. However, alternative fuel resources abound in the form of agricultural and municipal waste or biomass. This report reviews the state of the art of biomass combustion and gassification systems, their advantages and disadvantages. It also encourages investment in use of these technologies to enable developing countries to better exploit their biomass resources and help close the gap between their energy needs and their energy supply.
