Employing critical pedagogy and transformative theory as a theoretical framework, I examined a learning process associated with building capacity in community-based organizations (CBOs) through an investigation of the Institutional Capacity Building Program (ICBP) initiated by a Foundation. The study sought to: (a) examine the importance of institutional capacity building for individual and community development; (b) investigate elements of a process associated with a program and characteristics of a learning process for building capacity in CBOs; and (c) analyze the Foundation’s approach to synthesizing, systematizing, and sharing learning. The study used a narrative research design that included 3 one-on-one, hour-long interviews with 2 women having unique vantage points in ICBP: one is a program facilitator working at the Foundation and the other runs a CBO supported by the Foundation. The interviews’ semistructured questions allowed interviewees to share stories regarding their experience with the learning process of ICB and enabled themes to emerge from their day-to-day experience. Through the analysis of this learning process for institutional capacity building, a few lessons can be drawn from the experience of the Foundation.

This report emphasizes that cross-border tertiary education refers to the movement of people, programs, providers, curricula, projects, research and services in tertiary (or higher) education across national jurisdictional borders. Cross-border education is a subset of educational internationalization and can be part of development cooperation projects, academic exchange programs and commercial initiatives. The focus of this volume is on the mobility of students, programs and providers/institutions. Student mobility remains relatively small, but has grown at an unprecedented pace in the past decade. The study concludes that cross-border tertiary education can be a helpful capacity development tool that countries and donor countries and agencies should consider in their development strategies. Finally, with the growth of trade in education services and the inclusion of the sector in the General Agreement on Trade in Services (GATS), countries and their education community should develop a better technical understanding of trade agreements. These agreements can be a tool in their capacity-building strategy...

Achieving rapid development calls for improved capacity in the public and private sectors to support development policies and projects. The World Bank recognizes that capacity building is a long-term process requiring a systemic approach. That is why many Bank projects in Africa and elsewhere include capacity development activities. But three drawbacks have limited the effectiveness of these efforts: many operations do not -- but need to -- take an integrated view of solutions involving the individual, organizational, and institutional contexts; individual, organizational, and institutional links vary greatly across sectors -- not addressing these differences has led to less effective capacity building; and capacity goals as they relate to this understanding of the individual, organizational, and institutional aspects have not been explicit. This Capacity Brief discusses and illustrates the importance of integrating capacity-building efforts at all three levels, and addressing differences among sectors in their integration...

The objective of the Financial/Private Sector Capacity Building project (1995-2000) was to assist the Government of Mauritania in implementing a program of private sector promotion through strengthening the legal and regulatory framework and creating an enabling environment for private investment. The project was put in place at a time when major macro-economic imbalances had already been addressed and it extended and deepened reforms initiated under the adjustment program in the mid-1980s. It focused on activities which (i) encourage investor interest in the private sector, particularly in mining and fishing by, for example, revising commercial and tax codes ; and (ii) strengthen the financial sector for providing better credit and banking services needed for the development of private sector activities. Lessons learned focused on genuine stakeholder participation to achieve intended objectives. Mauritania has modernized its business law without any conflict with Islamic law thanks to the involvement of traditional magistrates in the law preparation process. It would have been helpful to have limited the number of executing agencies involved in delivering the several complex components. Institutional change...

The note looks at the interrelation of three essential components to economic development: capacity building - the development of skills and institutions; good governance; and, economic reform, the two other components which cannot be implemented without well-functioning institutions. It further reviews the rationale and evidence of institutional capacity building, because it provides the framework within which people, and firms participate in the economy. Most importantly, the different specific objectives of international financial institutions are examined, first in their support to investments, e.g., infrastructure and capacity building within an adjustment program; second, in the achievement of economic and social policy; and, third, in encouraging economic development, and business practices, through training, and collaborative efforts. The note specifically reviews the support provided by the International Monetary Fund, which includes capacity building towards enhancing economic expertise, through technical assistance...

The Indigenous Peoples Leadership Capacity Building Program for the Andean Countries (Andean Program) is the result of an initiative of the Fund for the Development of Indigenous Peoples of Latin America and the Caribbean (Fondo Indígena), supported initially by the governments of Ecuador and Peru and later by the main national indigenous organizations of the Andean countries of Bolivia, Colombia, Ecuador, Peru and Venezuela. Responding to this interest, the World Bank started a participatory process to identify the demand and the most important themes which would be the basis for a capacity-building program. As a consequence, training modules on governance, development with identity, indigenous rights, and the use of technologies of information and communications (ICT) have been prepared and validated in a series of workshops held since 2003, with the participation of indigenous leaders.

The International Finance Corporation (IFC), the private sector arm of the World Bank Group, launched the Global Trade Finance Program (GTFP) in 2005. Under this program, IFC guarantees the payment risk of counter-party banks in emerging markets related to a variety of underlying trade instruments. The GTFP also provides technical assistance to banks, with a focus on institutional capacity building in the broad areas of Trade Finance and International Trade Operations. Trade is a fundamental component in a country s growth and development and this has been especially true for emerging markets. The IFC with its mandate to support the private sector within developing countries actively works to facilitate cross-border trade through its trade finance program. Under the GTFP, IFC can provide guarantees covering up to 100 percent of a transaction value thus facilitating the parties involved with the trade transaction to close the deal despite challenges they may have encountered with credit limits, country exposure constraints...

This note examines key stages of national monitoring and evaluation systems’ (NMESs) development in different country contexts and argues for tailored approaches to building M and E capacities. The development of NMESs rests on four building blocks - vision of leadership, an enabling environment, capacity to supply and analyze M and E information, and capacity to demand and use M and E information. Developing countries can differ significantly in their performance along these four dimensions - some have virtually no NMES, while others are at a much more advanced stage where reliable and timely M and E information is generated and used. Most developing countries likely fall in between. Using the example of five African countries, this note discusses the differences and similarities in capacity-building needs for countries at different levels of NMES development.

There is widespread consensus that Australia's capacity building program has been broadly successful. It is credited with encouraging the adoption of 'best practice' economic reform in the region, which will encourage economic growth and development in the region. It has also assisted in furthering APEC's goal of regional economic integration. However, a series of improvements can be made which will allow the program to better achieve these objectives. can still be made. Based on interviews with persons involved, academics and independent research, several proposals have been developed which should allow the program to better achieve its outcomes. These are as follows: 1. Better evaluation criteria. Current criteria are either too focussed on the near-term (based on goals more appropriate to technical and infrastructure projects), or focused on intangible long-term outcomes. A greater effort should be made to link the two outcomes. Specific goals should be set, but an effort should be made to link these to broader institutional transformations. Evaluation methods should not be based on technical goals used on "conventional" aid programs. Australia should also consider adopting the recommendations from the upcoming OECD 2011 Aid-for-Trade Global Review...

The study explores the interactive clash resulting from reforms, and institutional capacity at the provincial level, as the main element to explain current limitations, and to suggest recommendations conducive to further social reform. To understand the framework for past reforms, the study reviews the economic, political, and institutional context within which such reforms were implemented, and examines the national government's reform policy - within the implementation strategy - and, as well, the provincial governments' capacity to manage change - i.e., in three provinces, Catamarca, Cordoba and Salta. The study focuses mainly on education, and health reforms, significantly different in both design, and formulation: health reform only introduced administrative hospital autonomy, merely a partial aspect of a broad health system reform; whereas, the education reform consisted of a total educational system change. The result was that the health reform was supported basically by interested syndicates, who envisaged compensatory benefits...

The review was undertaken, and completed against a background of substantial political economic disruption: the Kosovo crisis of 1999 threatened to undermine the country's accomplishments in building macroeconomic, and fiscal stability; and, the security crisis of 2001, tested once again Macedonia's political, and economic integrity. Both instances were successfully surpassed, showing significant steps towards becoming a market oriented state within the European context, and, in its willingness to accept, and ratify the Peace Agreement of November 2001. But, expenditure pressures rose, leading to additional spending, while revenues declined owing to economic weakness, and decreased tax enforcement; clearly, fiscal stability stands on the balance. Not surprising, the quality of expenditures became an important issue, for although acceptable aggregate targets were being achieved, the budget's economic composition was not suited for promoting economic growth. Institutional aspects show that budget preparation...

The objective of this report is to review and recommend improvements to Ethiopia's approach to public sector reform in order to advise the Government and executive institutions on the future of its public sector reform. The report also serves as a think piece for the World Bank, other partners, and policy makers. The report provides important basic information about the features of Ethiopia's public sector reform approach and reviews what worked well and what did not. It draws lessons from other countries' experience to help develop ideas and instruments of future public sector reforms in Ethiopia. Ethiopia's system of decentralization process has been credible in devolving power, improving governance and service delivery well as narrowing the per capital differences among Regional Governments and districts. The second phase of decentralization was 'big bang' and brought some gaps on addressing administrative and fiscal decentralization issues associated with: a) detailed clarity of expenditure and revenue assignments...

This paper examines historically the World Bank's twin features: lending to developing economies to achieve tangible results and advocating specific development policies. Section 1 provides some conceptual underpinnings for the view that an effective state is essential for development. It asks whether development can be engineered, and state capacity increased, with large aid flows. Section 2 sketches the historical evolution of what characterizes the World Bank: lending to developing economies and advocacy of development policy. It concludes that, while the Bank discourse explicitly recognizes that developing countries need to improve their governance and build the capacity of the public sector to improve living standards, the Bank's performance in assisting governments in building state capacity and achieving better governance outcomes has been disappointing. Section 3 proposes an interpretation of why this has been the case. The interpretation is structural, and related to the way the Bank is organized. This concerns in particular (1) how its research is prioritized and used for decision-making...

In the early 1990s, the Government of Venezuela urgently requested assistance from the World Bank to combat corruption, improve the business climate, and create a sense of transparency and involvement of civil society in state matters. The country's judicial system was identified as the institution in which to begin such reforms, because it was widely perceived as lacking credibility and efficiency. The Judicial Infrastructure Project aimed to improve Venezuela's enabling environment for private sector development and to reduce the private and social costs of justice. In December 1993, the Bank began negotiations with the government to develop a project that would address failings in the judicial sector. This was the first stand-alone project of this type that the Bank has funded. The project design was refined during implementation, leading to greater participation and ownership. Social Development best practice elements were identified as: Organizational and institutional analysis to ensure intended outcomes; institutionalized mechanisms for participation and decentralized implementation; and ongoing monitoring and evaluation of social development outcomes by the government and community. Lessons learned included the following: Effective partnership with civil society can make a significant contribution to judicial reform. Capacity building workshops aid in creating partnerships among different groups of stakeholders. Measures to improve transparency and efficiency can be developed with the help of stakeholder consultation...

To achieve the goals of sustainable growth and poverty reduction, developing countries need strong national institutions. To this end, the World Bank has devoted significant resources to building the capacity of institutions and organizations in client countries. The Bank helps countries build capacity through a variety of diverse but complementary means, including technical assistance, studies, equipment, and training. This evaluation addresses these questions and examines how training is used alongside other Bank support to achieve clients' capacity building objectives. The World Bank invests an estimated $720 million annually in support of client training. Over 90 percent is financed through investment projects, with the remainder provided through the World Bank Institute (WBI). This evaluation represents the first time that the World Bank's training investments have been examined to determine the impact of training on clients' capacity- building objectives and to obtain insights into the factors driving success or failure. It presents a rich set of ideas for improving the effectiveness of both WBI and project- financed training...

The coastal zone of Eastern Africa includes the coastal lowlands from Sudan to South Africa, the nearshore islands off the coasts of Tanzania and Mozambique, and the oceanic islands of Madagascar, the Seychelles, Comoros, Mauritius, and Reunion. In some of the countries of the sub-region, at least 80 percent of the population can be considered coastal. Overexploitation of coastal and marine resources and the degradation of the resource base could significantly limit the sub-region's potential for sustainable economic growth and development. In 1997, the Secretariat for Eastern African Coastal Area Management was launched in Maputo, Mozambique, to assist countries in the East African Region to coordinate and implement Integrated Coastal Management (ICM) activities. Capacity building and the need for enhanced information sharing were seen as critical issues. Critical skills that needed to be built up included techniques for problem solving, strategic planning, project/program monitoring and evaluation, and conflict resolution. In mid-1998...

This evaluation assesses the relevance and effectiveness of Bank support for public sector capacity building in Africa, over the past 10 years. It draws on studies of Benin, Ethiopia, Ghana, Malawi, Mali, and Mozambique; aggregate assessments of country strategies and operations across the Bank's Africa Region; and, reviews of three corporate and Regional programs dedicated to capacity building-the World Bank Institute, the Institutional Development Fund, and the Bank-supported African Capacity Building Foundation. Main findings suggest recent changes in approach have made Bank support more relevant; most capacity support remains fragmented; sector-specific capacity building approaches need strengthening; tools and instruments could be more effectively and fully utilized; and, quality assurance is inadequate. These findings underscore the importance of approaching capacity building in Africa as a core objective, and ensuring that Bank capacity building support is country-owned, results oriented, and evidence-based. The evaluation recommends that: the Bank strengthen its knowledge base...

The authors discuss a variety of experiences in a number of transition, and developing countries to build institutional capacity for economics education. A flexible approach met with some success. The approach uses partnerships that combine the often different needs of a number of private donors, with the World Bank on the supply side. Much of the success was due to adopting each effort to the individual country situation. The authors also provide a brief summary of five academic institutions, and four research networks in Europe, Africa, Asia, and Latin America.

The development of the institutional capacity to create and evaluate economic policies remains a critical need-and constraint-in most transition economies if they are to complete the successful passage to fully functioning market economies. To take an active role in the transition process, economic policymakers, business leaders, government officials, and others need a thorough grounding in market-based economics. This requires strengthening economics education and providing support for qualified economists to teach economics at all levels and to carry out high-quality research and policy analysis. Although the education systems in a handful of countries have already risen to the challenge, in many other transition countries, the structure of educational and research institutes remains grounded in the Communist model. This paper presents findings from a comprehensive study assessing the state of economics education and research in 24 countries in East-Central Europe and the former Soviet Union. While 20 countries were initially included because preliminary assessments showed that they lacked the capability to offer high-quality economics education...
