ESMAP : annual report 1992 (English)

The past year was one of further transition for ESMAP. Following the meeting of the Consultative Group in Geneva, major changes in the management of the Programme were introduced as a prelude to the elaboration of a new strategy and work plan for 1992-93. Immediately after the meeting, the decision was taken to establish ESMAP as a separate entity within the World Bank. The organizational changes took place in a year characterized by sluggish economic performance worldwide, a decrease for the second consecutive year in GNP per capita in developing countries as a whole, diminishing energy prices in real terms, and dwindling aid programs caused by persistent budget difficulties in many OECD countries. Despite mounting environmental concerns and the public debate generated by the United Nations Conference on Environment and Development (UNCED), energy issues in developing countries seemed to be perceived as relatively less important than in the past few years. Moreover, technical assistance programs have had to compete for resources within declining overseas development assistance funds. As a result, funding the ESMAP work plan proved highly uncertain. Despite these difficult conditions, ESMAP was able to continue work on ongoing programs and a limited number of new activities with very little disruption: 41 activities were completed during the period. This compares with a total of 37 activities completed during the previous period and 14 activities one year before. The number of new activities launched during the year decreased from 27 to 21, reflecting the difficulties in securing new funding. At the end of September 1992, some 35 new activities proposed in the ESMAP work plan for 1992-93 still remained to be funded.
