A pesquisa propõe uma reflexão acerca de alguns aspectos da arquitetura moderna brasileira que foi produzida num recorte histórico inicial de quatro anos e que conheceu uma extensão total de aproximadamente dez anos. Para isso, o trabalho enfoca, por um lado, a orientação crítico teórica dominante no período, responsável pela afirmação de uma arquitetura moderna brasileira "hegemônica", e seu esforço em defender uma identidade nacional baseada na geração de espaços que possibilitaram novas práticas sociais e, por outro, um dos caminhos no qual a prática mostrou uma renovação no período e que não foi devidamente avaliado na ocasião. Portanto, através da criação, pelo então governador Carlos Aberto Carvalho Pinto, de um plano de governo com ideais modernizadores, o Plano de Ação do Governo do Estado - PAGE (1959 - 1963), a pesquisa busca compreender a difusão, através de edifícios escolares, dos ideais modernos no interior do Estado de São Paulo, mais especificamente na região central, nas cidades de Araraquara, Araras, Piracicaba, Rio Claro e São Carlos, procurando examinar permanências e continuidades, e ainda, as possíveis relações estabelecidas entre esses edifícios. Bem como, conexões com obras de períodos anteriores...

In accordance with the Great Lakes Water Quality Agreement, the governments of Canada and the United States have agreed to support the remediation of 43 Areas of Concern (AOC) where “failure [to meet objectives of the agreement] has caused or is likely to cause impairment of beneficial use or of the area’s ability to support aquatic life.” A Remedial Action Plan (RAP) has been created for each AOC that outlines how impairments are to be addressed. This research report is focused on one such plan, the Bay of Quinte RAP, as a case study to explore the impact of communicating research and monitoring on realizing the aims of the policy. Research included a literature review encompassing existing works about Great Lakes RAPs and the Bay of Quinte watershed, semi-structured interviews with project leaders and community stakeholders and attendance at a research and monitoring forum. Findings indicate that tracking trends, valuing monitoring, promoting stakeholder cooperation, collaborating with other RAPs and informing management and decision making are key outcomes of shared science at the Bay of Quinte. Lessons learned are instructive for any groups conducting ecosystem restoration or management programs, particularly those involved in any of the 40 other RAPs still underway on the Great Lakes.; ENSC 501: Environmental Studies Independent Study; April 2009; School of Environmental Studies

A 2003 World Bank study, "Governance of Natural Resources in the Philippines," analyzed natural resources management and governance in the Philippines. It assessed sector policies, particularly property rights, institutions, and financing mechanisms as well as program implementation. The study concluded that implementation failures in the Department arose from: (a) Unclear institutional mandates between national and local governments; (b) Lack of sustained financing at the national level and limited generation of revenues at the local level for natural resources management; (c) Protracted procedures in the issuance of forestry tenure instruments and difficulties in the enforcement of provisions of agreements; (d) Lack of equivalent tenure instruments for coastal waters and resources; (e) Administrative constraints, such as inadequate funds and personnel to carry out sustainable natural resources management; and, (f) Insufficient capacity, accountability and transparency in public and private institutions responsible for natural resources management. Because the Governance study stopped short of proposing a way forward, this follow-on activity was designed to develop an actionable follow-on plan that could be translated into short-term to medium-term investments. This follow-on study had the following specific objectives: (a) A Policy Review of the various legislations...

This document is part two of the blueprint and represents an expression of the organization, process and solution design for all areas covered in the vision of a modern, fit for purpose property tax department. The scope of this document sets out a time bound action plan that covers both the high level design of the new organization as well as the program to deliver the specific operation. If the proposals in the blue print were to be adopted by the provincial government it is believe that, based on our experience, the reform process will take a minimum of five years. The action plan is, therefore, based on a five-year period, this can, of course, be adapted to take account of local circumstances. It has to be said that many of the issues identified in the inception report, the diagnostic report and the blueprint have been identified previously in various consultancy reports and were recognized by the provincial government in the Medium Term Policy Framework but little action has ensued.

The Marrakesh action plan for statistics (MAPS) was created in 2004 as an important component of an informal partnership whose main goal is to help develop and strengthen national statistical systems through six specific actions with target dates aiming to prepare the way for sustainable improvement in statistical capacity. The objectives of the evaluation are: (i) to assess the effectiveness, efficiency, and sustainability of the five partnership programs; (ii) to assess the extent to which MAPS actions remains relevant to the statistical capacity; and (iii) to provide guidance on how support for statistical capacity can be strengthened and made more effective under the Busan action plan for statistics. This report presents the results of a light evaluation of the partnership effort between the World Bank, through the development grant facility (DGF), and a number of key agencies involved in the building of statistical capacity in developing countries under the MAPS. This evaluation covers the five largest partnership programs which include the international household survey network (IHSN)...

The intensive development of tourism in the Gulf of Aqaba presents both an opportunity and a dilemma for Egypt. Intensive tourism, if left unmanaged, can inflict irreversible damage on coral reef and desert ecosystems and curtail the area's economic potential. Together with current projections for a rapid expansion of the tourism base in the Aqaba coast, degradation from mounting recreational activities give rise to serious concerns about the sustainability of tourism development in the region. The challenge is to plan for economic development within a sound environmental framework. Implementing the Gulf Of Aqaba Environmental Action Plan (GAEAP) would protect marine resources, including coral reefs and fisheries, and conserve the aesthetic attributes of the Gulf environment and waters upon which the tourist industry depends. This action plan comprises activities in nine categories: institutional strengthening, enforcement of legal and regulatory framework at the South Sinai Governorate level, management of marine pollution...

Ningbo serves as the Chinese pilot city for the World Bank Climate Resilient Cities (CRC) Program. The CRC program aims to, prepare local governments in the East Asia region to better understand the concepts and consequences of climate change; how climate change consequences contribute to urban vulnerabilities; and what is being done by city governments in East Asia and around the world to actively engage in learning capacity building, and capital investment programs for building sustainable, resilient communities. This local resilience action plan (LRAP) had four parts. Part one investigated natural hazards weather observations and climate models. Seven key climatic parameters were selected: temperature, rainfall, drought, heat wave, flood, tropical cyclone, and sea level rise. Part two examined how the city functions, and pursues socio-economic development through a city vulnerability assessment. The qualitative, city vulnerability assessment was based on five sectors- people, infrastructure, environment...

The purpose of this paper is to outline an approach for Bank engagement in forests, trees, and woodlands on farms in Sub-Saharan Africa for the coming five years. The paper takes the framework of the Africa development strategy, which has two main pillars: supporting employment and competitiveness, and building resilience and reducing vulnerability; and one underlying foundation: strengthening capacity and governance. It is consistent with the pillars of the bank forest strategy from 2002, which highlight the contribution of forests to economic development, poverty reduction, and protection of global public goods. Several other World Bank corporate strategies are also relevant for the implementation of this action plan. The primary messages of this paper are linked: enhanced forest, tree and woodland management can play a key role in achieving the goals of the Africa Strategy. Employment generation, improving competitiveness as well as building resilience and reducing vulnerability are the overall objectives of the World Bank's forest engagement in Sub-Saharan Africa; and in many countries the most effective approaches will be outside the traditional forestry institutions and will involve working through operations and reforms supported through other sectors.

This staff sector assessment note accompanies the recently completed national environmental action plan for sustainable development (NEAP-SD), which, as an output of the Industrial Pollution Control Project in Algeria, focused on charting a new course for environmental management in the country, based on an objective assessment of past policy, and institutional failures, on a new consensus on the need for mainstreaming the environment into economic management, and sectoral policies, and, on the implementation of a priority action plan, fully integrated with the government three-year economic revival program. The social cost of environmental degradation is already quite significant, and will continue to increase if policies, institutional, and investment measures are not provided. The NEAP-SD serves as a vehicle for building bridges with non-governmental organizations, and donors, and enhance the prospects for improved coordination, as well as helping inform the ongoing process of Country Assistance Strategy (CAS). Recommendations suggest the use of high impact strategic lending...

This paper forms the action plan for financial consumer protection, and focuses on the main findings and recommendations. These include proposing specific actions to be undertaken by Latvian authorities, financial institutions and consumer organizations, so that consumer protection is strengthened and made more effective and efficient. Existing industry ombudsmen should publish cases they have dealt with, as well as their yearly activity report, which should be provided to the Financial and Capital Market Commission (FCMC), and to the Consumer Rights Protection Center (CRPC). The action plan draws on best international practices and experiences of regulators and supervisors, who have tried to introduce improved consumer protection regimes in their countries. A well balanced consumer protection regime serves the interest of financial institutions as it provides them with better-informed clients and makes sure that clients understand their obligations under the contracts they signed. The paper takes into account the current macroeconomic situation in Latvia...

The Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region is experiencing a time of momentous change. Some countries are in the midst of a profound political, economic, and demographic transition, others are striving to emerge from protracted conflict, yet others are experiencing internal tensions and rising demands for more citizen voice. This period of change and uncertainty presents challenges and opportunities, including with regard to gender issues. Yet some governments may not prioritize gender issues, while in others there could be a regression. MENA Regional Gender Action Plan (RGAP) is part of the World Bank's institutional commitment to operationalize the policy priorities identified in the WDR 2012 and the regional companion to the World Development Report (WDR) 2012. The MENA Regional Gender Action Plan (RGAP) will require that the Bank be nimble and practical in its approach to advancing gender equality in the region. The MENA RGAP provides a two-pronged approach to supporting MENA countries in advancing gender equality: Prong 1: through country programs; and Prong 2: championing dialogue.

This handbook intends to document the essential steps for best practice in the design, and implementation of resettlement action plans. Given that involuntary resettlement entails both the physical displacement of peoples, and the disruption of their livelihoods, social development specialists at the International Finance Corporation (IFC), worked together with project developers to ensure consistent, and pragmatic application of the Bank Group policies, and guidelines, contributing to the mitigation of environmental, and social risks. The handbook outlines the policy, and principles of resettlement, stipulating these principles as follows: 1) involuntary resettlement should be avoided; 2) where involuntary resettlement is unavoidable, affected people should be compensated fully, and fairly for lost assets; 3) involuntary resettlement should be conceived as an opportunity to improve the livelihoods of the affected people, and, undertaken accordingly; and, 4) people affected by involuntary resettlement...

The report builds on the 'towards a vision for agricultural innovation in Chile in 2030' report and is further based on a series of background papers and a consultation process that took place between December 2010 and May 2011. The current study is the third in a series of three that were agreed between the Government of Chile and the World Bank to support the development of a long-term agricultural innovation strategy. The first paper reviewed the functioning of the three main public technological institutes and recommended how their performance can be improved. The second study explored the future of Chile's agriculture towards 2030, using scenario planning and developing a vision for the future of its agricultural innovation system. This paper is based on the results of the former two studies, as well as a set of background documents and further consultations, and will outline the action plan required to achieve the aforementioned vision. The objective of this action plan is to enhance the capacity of Chile's agricultural innovation system in order to achieve the goals as laid out in the vision for the sector for the year 2030. It builds on the current strengths of the agricultural innovation system and elaborates on the main actions needed to address the priority topics. Five principles serve as the foundation of the plan: recognizing national and regional responsibilities; distinguishing public and private roles; diversity; excellence; and institutional integration. Most of the actions can be implemented between 2011 and 2015 and consolidated in the next five years. After 2020...

The Palestinian Territories (West Bank and Gaza Strip) are highly dependent on energy imports from neighboring countries because of its lack of domestic energy resources. The Israeli Electricity Corporation (IEC) is the largest supplier of electricity to the Territories, supplying around 88 percent of its total electricity consumption. In this context the Palestinian Authority (PA) has been actively engaged in a comprehensive reform of the electricity sector to increase its overall efficiency, bringing in the commitment and involvement of all stakeholders and resulting in the creation of a well-structured electricity market. Alongside steady increase in electricity consumption, however, non-payment for electricity imported from the IEC has increased over the past few years, amounting to 58 percent of its total cost. The non-payments or partial payments of these bills create deficient for the IEC, which then leads the Israeli government to proceed with monthly deductions from the clearance revenue, thus accruing as debt. This assessment aims to precisely understand the sources and the reasons for non-payment of electricity in the Territories and to develop an action plan based on current programs and activities led by the Palestinian Energy and Natural Resources Authority (PENRA) and the donor community. The impacts of non-payment for electricity on the complete financial payment cycle are assessed in detail. An overview of the Palestinian Electricity Sector is provided in Chapter 2...

Bulgaria under the guidance of the Minister of Health is undertaking a major reform of its health system. One input to the reform is a joint study with the World Bank on health financing in Bulgaria (The World Bank Diagnostic Report). The report evaluates the strengths and weaknesses of Bulgaria’s health financing system in terms of the three health financing functions of revenue raising, risk pooling, and purchasing of services. It assesses each of these financing functions in terms of the health financing goals of improving health outcomes, financial protection, and consumer responsiveness in an efficient, equitable, and sustainable manner. The assessment of the health financing system documented significant strengths in the system, but also major challenges in terms of the purchasing function and current hospital payment practices. These challenges included unsustainable growth in hospital spending; lack of incentives for efficiency, quality, or cost control, and strong incentives for hospitalization over treatment in less expensive outpatient settings. Fundamental problems with the current hospital payment system using Clinical Care Pathways (CCPs) were highlighted. The purpose of this report is to provide information to Bulgarian decision-makers on how Bulgaria can move towards implementing a DRG-based hospital budgeting and payment system. The report was prepared by a team of Bulgarian and international DRG experts who have been involved in the country’s DRG assessment and planning since its inception. The report is intended for a wide-ranging audience that includes high-level policy-makers who are weighting the benefits of implementing DRGs...

This work discusses the short term stabilisation policies implemented by two plans – Three-Year Plan (Trienal) of 1962) and the Government’s Economic Action Programme(PAEG) of 1964 – in order to compare their main measures and results. It is intended to show that these plans had similarities being PAEG’s wage policy the main point of difference. In this context, their performance differences were due to the turbulent internal and external contexts that the Three-Year Plan faced and that left it unable to solve the problems related to the distributive conflict and the external constraint. The Government’s Economic Action Plan solved these problems, but the solution employed in terms of the conflicting claims was a regressive one and the external constraint was overcome with a help of US authorities that was not offered to the Three-Year Plan.; O presente artigo tem por objetivo analisar as políticas de estabilização de curto prazo propostas pelo Plano Trienal (1962) e pelo Programa de Ação Econômica do Governo (1964) através da comparação das principais medidas implementadas e dos resultados alcançados pelos dois planos.

Comprehensive conservation plans cover all of the characteristics of an area such as the biophysical, the human, and the institutional ecologies. A Conservation Action Plan (CAP) is The Nature Conservancy’s (TNC) comprehensive process for planning, implementing, and measuring success for their conservation projects. This paper evaluates the Washington Chapter of TNC’s Rapid CAP for the nearshore marine habitats of the South Sound Inlets of Puget Sound and provides recommendations. Findings are that the planning process was flexible enough to meet changing needs and time constraints, but did not remain objective enough to be justifiable. The planners had trouble dealing with all of the different perspectives and interests of the stakeholder representatives in the South Sound. The planners could have improved their contact relations by doing more pre-planning research into the conservation activities already in the area and by constructing a more robust system for including stakeholders in the planning process.
