Argentina - Second Provincial Agricultural Development Project (English)

Ratings of Second Provincial Agricultural Development Project for Argentina were as follows: outcomes were moderately unsatisfactory, risk to development outcome was moderate, Bank performance was moderately unsatisfactory, and Borrower performance was moderately unsatisfactory. Some lessons learned included: (i) The mix of instruments needs to balance investments in hard infrastructure, innovative mechanisms for multiplying/distributing the benefits and Soft technical assistance and training programs; (ii) Leveraging maximum impact from resources allocated for multi-sector public infrastructure investments requires the transparent selection and evaluation of proposals and involvement of key sector institutions; (iii) The identity and characteristics of intended beneficiaries and the distribution of benefits should be analyzed, understood and documented in the Project Appraisal Document (PAD); (iv) Institutional capacity building at sub-national levels needs customization to the unique institutional, legal and administrative situations in each case; (v) Operation and maintenance is the sine qua non for projects involving a hierarchy of inter-dependent physical investments; and (vi) The starting point for Monitoring and Evaluation must be the connection between the works/investments and outcomes at the producer level; and, systems and practices should be established early and supervised closely.
