Annual review of evaluation results - 1989 (English)

This annual review is the sixteenth in its series. This year's review presents salient aspects of evaluation work carried out and reports on the performance of the cohort of Bank-supported operations that were evaluated in 1989. The review : 1) discusses the Bank's policy framework and the world economic environment during the years in which these operations were approved and implemented; 2) revisits 21 irrigation projects five to twelve years after their completion to review their effects in agricultural, economic, social, institutional, and environmental terms; 3) presents the conclusions of a comparative study of 35 trade adjustment operations in nine countries, adding to the understanding of trade policy reform processes; and 4) offers insights into the dynamics of the Bank's relationships with its borrowers over long periods of time, drawing lessons for future lending strategy and the management of operational programs.
