Human and Social Development - Review of the Performance Evaluation Reports of Structural Adjustment Programmes in Mali and Morocco

Human and Social Development - Review of the Performance Evaluation Reports of Structural Adjustment Programmes in Mali and Morocco
On the whole, the programmes under review obtained encouraging outcomes but their macro-economic performance remained poor, and required further structural reforms to stabilize the macro-economic framework. The performance was positively influenced or affected by exogenous factors during programme implementation, which could jeopardize sustainability of the positive impacts of the programmes. It should be pointed out that the programmes did not contribute to improving the social indicators and solving the crucial problems of unemployment and poverty, which remain critical despite a few measures and initiatives taken to solve them. As indicated earlier, the sectoral performance remains very poor and not influenced by the structural measures implemented under the programmes.Read more

Human and Social Development - Review of Post Evaluation Reports of Education Projects in the Scientific, Technical and Vocation Training Sector
The physical implementation (infrastructure, furniture and equipment) of education projects, particularly those of the scientific, technical and vocational training sub-sector, is satisfactory. However, the problems of maintenance remain sources of concern. The absence or inadequacy of the cost recovery systems (registration and school fees) and the difficulty for the Governments to allocate the necessary funds to the operating budgets of the structures created diminished the sustainability of the positive effects of these projects. The socio-economic impact of these projects is often difficult to measure owing to the shortcomings of the statistical information systems. However, it is possible to confirm that improvement in the job accessibility for the target beneficiaries of these projects was low owing to the insufficient macro-economic performance of the States.Read more

Transport - Study on Bank Group Experience and Lessons From Road Sub - sector Projects and Programmes
In recognition of the role of the transport sector in the economic and social development of Regional Member Countries (RMCs), the African Development Bank Group has provided since 1967, a large number of loans and grants for the implementation of transport sector projects, notably road sub-sector projects. Although Bank Group Transport Sector Policy was made only in 1992, earlier interventions in the sector met the policy objectives as declared later. Under the policy, emphasis was placed on a development strategy, which included the rehabilitation of existing roads and achieving a balanced allocation of scarce financial resources between new construction and rehabilitation of existing roads, and accorded particular importance to the construction of rural roads. This policy also emphasised the economic integration of Africa, through: (I) establishment and development of reliable regional or international road transport systems; (2) the mobilisation of internal resources and the use of road funds; and (3) the application of appropriate road user charging and taxation methods to increase revenue and improve cost recovery. The objective of the study was to analyse the Bank Group's experience from road projects and to identify the principal findings, lessons and appropriate recommendations that would help in improving the identification, preparation, appraisal, and implementation of the on-going and future operations of the Bank Group. The study serves also as an important element of the Bank Group's feedback mechanism.Read more

Human and Social Development - Report on the Bank Experience with regard to Social Dimensions of Adjustment
The African Development Bank (ADB), the World Bank and the UNDP jointly launched the Social Dimensions of Adjustment (SDA) program in Africa in May 1988, with a view to preventing structural adjustment and economic reform programs from causing excessive difficulties to the poor and the vulnerable, and integrating such persons into the economy. Pursuant to its mission to ensure the economic development and social progress of its regional member countries, the Bank under ADF-V (1988-90) and ADF-VI (1991-93) financed projects in 13 regional member countries (RMC), within the SDA Regional Program framework. The overall purpose of the study is to evaluate the Bank’s experience on SDA projects and structural adjustment programs (SAP) with an SDA component. It evaluates the performance of such operations to draw lessons and make recommendations that would contribute to improving the Bank’s modus operandi, especially with regard to its assistance to poverty reduction.Read more

Agriculture & Agro-industries - sector experience study
The Study covers seven sugar estates and one smallholder scheme financed by the Bank. The total number of loans to these projects amounted to UA 300 million (US$ 416 million) or 73% of total Bank lending to the sector. Five projects concerned the rehabilitation of existing sugar complexes (Bacita and Savannah in Nigeria, Lugazi and Kakira in Uganda and Mafambisse in Mozambique); two projects involved the development of new sugar complexes (Simunye in Swaziland and Finchaa in Ethiopia), while one project was for the development of a nucleus estate together with a smallholders project (Kaleya in Zambia). Three of the projects (Simunye, Kaleya and Lugazi) were financed in the early 1980s, while the rest were financed about a decade later. The production base for all the estates is irrigated cane, with the exception of Kakira and Lugazi in Uganda, which are principally rain-fed estates. All the estates produce for the domestic market, except for Simunye, which exports a sizeable amount of its production outside the South African Currency Union (SACU) area.Read more
Human and Social Development - Review of Bank Experience in Trade Adjustment Programmes

Human and Social Development - Review of Bank Experience in Trade Adjustment Programmes
This present report is a continuation of that earlier OPEV effort. Its purpose is to review Bank Group experience with a subset of policy-based lending – sectoral adjustment programmes. Sectoral adjustment programmes (SECALs) are aimed at addressing adjustment issues in a specific sector of the economy. In other words, the aim is to deepen and fine-tune the adjustment process in a given sector. As an increasing number of African countries undergo the initial phase of the adjustment process, the need to fine-tune and deepen that process would become more obvious. Hence SECALs would probably and gradually replace the conventional economy-wide adjustment programmes as tools of economic reform. This report reviews Bank Group experience in trade and/or industry adjustment programmes. The aim is to draw relevant lessons for the Bank that could be useful in future operations. One of the major findings of this report is that while SECAL is quite desirable, particularly as an instrument for deepening the reform process, it does not perform well in an unstable macroeconomic environment. A major recommendation that flows from this finding is that the Bank should ensure that the macroeconomy is stable before it introduces a sectoral adjustment programme.Read more

Water Supply & Sanitation - Study on Bank Experience in Financing Urban Water Supply and Sanitation Projects
The Study reviews the Bank experience in the sub-sector and makes an assessment of development effectiveness and efficacy and impact of Bank assistance. It also examines matters connected with sector reforms, institutional development, efficiency of implementation and sustainability and has identified a number of key issues of special relevance to the water supply and sanitation sub-sector. Even though lessons and recommendations of the study have been derived from the water supply and sanitation projects, a number of them could be of equal relevance to other sectors and sub-sectors as well.Read more

Human and Social Development - Review of Bank Assistance Effectiveness
The review underscores the fact that while health challenges in Africa and costeffective solutions to most of them are well known, there is serious financing deficit by the governments and the donor community. This is despite several national and international resolutions that they have subscribed to, and a growing recognition that the health sector is central to development through a mutually reinforcing relationship between health and economic growth. Based on the assessment of Bank effectiveness in health sector by using the evaluation criteria of relevance, efficacy, efficiency, sustainability and institutional development, the report urges the Management of the Bank to undertake significant steps to improve the quality of the health portfolio.Read more
