    The Public Investment Management (PIM) efficiency review is intended to support the Government of Zimbabwe, and in particular the Ministry of Finance, in its efforts to strengthen the efficiency of the public investment system, with the goal of improving the creation, operation and maintenance of public sector capital assets that support service delivery and economic growth. The problems of public investment management are not merely financial but systemic. Budget execution deficit remains a major bottleneck.

    Vietnam's rapid and sustained economic growth and poverty reduction in the last two decades benefitted from the policy and legal reforms embodied in the Land Laws of 1987, 1993 and 2003 and subsequent related legal acts. This note outlines reforms related to four main themes. The first relates to the needed reform for agriculture land use to create opportunity to enhance effectiveness of land use as well as to secure farmers' rights in land use. Prolonging the duration of agricultural land tenure would give land users greater incentives to invest and care for the land.

    Accounting for around a third of the
    1996 Goss Domestic Product (GDP) of US$ 9 billion (second
    only to oil), and almost three-fourths of all employment,
    agriculture is a dominant sector of the Cameroonian economy.
    Also, as in most African countries, poverty in Cameroon is
    concentrated in rural areas, with more than 80 percent
    (approximately 5.5 million) of all poor people living in
    such areas. The Government of Cameroon's objectives

    Food policy often depends on markets and
    markets depend on institutions. But how good do institutions
    have to be before reforms can be launched? Relying on well
    timed surveys of agricultural prices and a joint study by
    the Government of Bulgaria and the World Bank on
    agricultural market institutions, this paper presents
    evidence that performance in food markets improved following
    significant policy reforms in Bulgaria, although public

    This Sourcebook deals with social
    analysis in policy reform, encompassing the transition from
    gaining a better understanding of the distributional impacts
    of proposed or continuing reform to influencing a more
    informed and locally embedded process of policy review and
    design. In a generic sense, the term "social
    analysis" encompasses institutional, political, and
    social analyses. These three overlapping areas, derived from

    The analysis of the distributional
    impact of policy reforms on the well-being or welfare of
    different stakeholder groups, particularly on the poor and
    vulnerable, has an important role in the elaboration and
    implementation of poverty reduction strategies in developing
    countries. In recent years this type of work has been
    labeled as Poverty and Social Impact Analysis (PSIA) and is
    increasingly implemented to promote evidence-based policy

    This report shows that after a decade of
    moderate growth but little or no long term change in rural
    poverty in Pakistan, agricultural output, rural incomes,
    rural poverty and social welfare indicators all showed
    marked improvements between 2001-02 and 2004-05. However,
    longer term trends suggest there is little reason for
    complacency. The agricultural GDP per capita growth rate
    (1999- 2000 to 2004-05) was only 0.3 percent per year; rural

    The purpose of this book is to
    contribute to the debate on how to confront the challenges
    that Bolivia faces today. It is composed of a series of
    studies on the current reality of Bolivia and has been
    developed in conjunction with national and international
    public policy experts. The studies present a diagnostic by
    sector, a summary of the main challenges, and public policy
    recommendations aimed at meeting these challenges. After

    This report aims to assist the
    government in improving implementation of the New Socialist
    Countryside (NSC) program, especially in raising the
    effectiveness of public expenditures, and the harmonization
    of public finance. While this report pays particular
    attention to rural aspects of public finance, it addresses
    this topic within the overall framework of intergovernmental
    finance that impacts both rural and urban areas. Similarly,
