Scope and content

The sub-series contains the working files for special studies generated by the Country Policy, Industry and Finance Division (OEDD2) and its predecessor, the Policy-Based Lending, Industry, Public Utilities and Urban Sectors Division. The studies cover a range of policies, themes, sectors, and countries, including: conditionality in World Bank financed loans; privatization; women in development; free-standing technical assistance for institutional development in Sub-Saharan Africa; trade policy reforms under adjustment programs; a study of Bank/country relations covering Mexico's agriculture, industry, infrastructure, urban, and electrical and power sectors; and the 1992 study The World Bank and Pacific Island Countries: An OED Review which covered the Bank's operations in six Pacific Island member countries: Fiji, Kiribati, Solomon Islands, Tonga, Vanuatu, and Western Samoa. There is also a draft of the design paper for the FY95 country assistance review for Nigeria.

Also included are files documenting OEDD2's participation in a Bank-wide steering group on Development Aid Effectiveness and a file for the development of a policy ledger of OED recommendations, management responses, and actions for all studies discussed by the Joint Audit Committee (JAC) after July 1, 1992.

  • Records from projects that originated in OEDD2 were transferred to the Country Evaluations and Regional Relations Division (OEDCR); see Records of the Operations Evaluation Department -- Special Evaluation Studies -- Country Evaluations and Regional Relations Division (OEDCR) special evaluation studies working files (WB IBRD/IDA OPE 09-06). It is likely that records generated by OEDD2 found in this sub-series were transferred to the OEDCR along with Department employees during the Department's structural reorganization in 1997.
