At the request of the World Bank's
Executive Board, the Bank's Operations Evaluation
Department (OED) has been conducting an evaluation of the
Bank's involvement in global programs. The Phase 1
Report titled The World Bank's Approach to Global
Programs focused on the strategic and programmatic
management of the Bank's global portfolio of 70
programs in five Bank Networks (a cluster of closely related
sectors) and was presented to the Committee on Development
Effectiveness (CODE) on June 12, 2002. This case study is
one of 26 and derives additional lessons for the Bank's
strategic and programmatic management of global programs as
well as lessons for the design and management of individual
programs. This case study assesses the value added by the
Bank's participation in the Global IPM Facility with a
view to learning lessons for the Bank s future involvement
in global programs. This is not a programmatic evaluation of
the Global IPM Facility, nor a substitute for a thorough
external independent evaluation. Several studies using new
survey data detailing the substantial health and ecological
benefits of IPM have emerged that contend that IPM does not
result in a loss in production. Yet the debate continues
about the most cost-effective and fiscally sustainable
approach to extending knowledge about IPM practices to farmers.
