Ethiopia - Review of Bank Group Assistance to the Public Utility Sector - Evaluation Report Summary
Public Utility Sector
Effective policies, strategies and institutional arrangements are most critical for performance of the sector and for a lasting development impact. The Bank’s sectoral level assistance and association with the Government in policies, strategies and institutional development was limited. There was no sectoral level institutional support to bring reforms to encourage private sector participation in the public utility sector. This constrained the Bank’s contribution to the sector development and addressing the many cross cutting developmental issues such as social development and gender equality, environment safeguards, private sector development and regional integration.
