As the World Bank looks afresh at its role in the global economy, it examines how to assist troubled regions by drawing on key lessons from operations in post-conflict areas. For this series on Post-Conflict Reconstruction, the Bank chose to examine field-based case studies in Bosnia and Herzegovina (BiH), El Salvador, and Uganda.
Main Description
The Operations Evaluation Department (OED) is an independent unit within the World Bank, assessing what works and what does not; how a borrower plans to run and maintain a project; and the lasting contribution of the Bank to a country's overall development. The goals of evaluation are to learn from experience; to provide an objective basis for assessing the results of the Bank's work, and to provide accountability in the achievement of its objectives. It also improves Bank work by identifying and disseminating the lessons learned from experience.
Main Description
Post-conflict reconstruction is not new to the Bank. In fact, the Bank's first loan was to the Government of France to rebuild the country after World War II. What is new, is the rapidly increasing number of post-conflict areas, and the enormity and complexity of rebuilding in each case. To better assist post-conflict areas in the future, the Bank is studying past experiences in dealing with post-conflict reconstruction. This volume represents the first in a series. The other volumes discuss post-conflict reform in Bosnia and Herzegovina and Uganda. Although the Bank played a significant role in assisting with post-conflict reconstruction in each country, the causes of state failure or collapse differ. Also different are the factors that influenced the initiation or resumption of Bank operations. This publication focuses on the World Bank's experience in El Salvador.
Long Description
The past three decades have seen impressive advances in development in the East Asia and Pacific (EAP) region. Gains in income and education have been accompanied by reductions in high levels of infant and child mortality and fertility, improved nutritional levels, better hygiene and sanitation and increased access to health care. This book, an EAP Sector Strategy paper, is intended to help address the development challenges and policy directions for the World Bank's Health, Nutrition, and Population (HNP) sector in the region. It highlights key lessons learned in the EAP region and presents policy options and recommendations to strengthen the quality and effectiveness of Bank-supported HNP operations. The development of this strategy is closely linked to the Bank's overall sector strategy that identified three major development priorities: * Improve the health, nutrition, and population outcomes of the poor * Enhance the performance of health care systems * Secure sustainable health care financing A Health, Nutrition, and Population Strategy for the East Asia and Pacific Region is meant to provide the guidelines and parameters to be used at the country-level. Strategy development will be ongoing, building on best practices within the region as well as internationally. This book is an invaluable resource for all those interested in the field of health, nutrition, and population in the context of international development. Part of the Health, Nutrition, and Population Series (HNP).
