Power sector reform review (English)

This paper reviews a sample of World Bank documents and web sites selected as representative of the best of the World Bank's work on power sector issues and projects. The documents represent research and analytical work, economic and sectoral work and project appraisal documents. The text and links at the electric power portions of the Bank's energy sector web site were also evaluated. The strengths and weaknesses in the Bank's documents were identified using the following factors: relevance, comprehensiveness, knowledge delivery, clarity, objectivity, and practicality.
