Infrastructure policy and research activities : abstracts of publications December 1990 - June 1992 (English)

Infrastructure has a central role to play in accelerating growth in developing countries. The Infrastructure and Urban Development Department's (INU) work program for 1992-95 has three main objectives: a) helping to develop effective institutions and markets by adapting infrastructure development strategies to a demand orientation; b) increasing the contributions that improved infrastructure can make to both poverty reduction and environmental protection; and c) enhancing program and project implementation assistance. Publications serve as an instrument for disseminating the vital lessons learned in pursuing these goals. This specific publication contains abstracts of publications produced by INU from December 1990 - June 1992 in the disciplines of transportation, urban, and water and sanitation.
