Twelve papers argue that the World Bank's greatest asset is its accumulated knowledge and experience of the development process, and propose that it organize itself around the concept of a "Knowledge Bank." Papers focus on an overview of some major issues of the World Bank; positioning the World Bank; the World Bank and poverty reduction in the past, present, and future; why the World Bank should be involved in development research; the challenges of multilateralism and governance; lessons from the 1980s on the World Bank and structural adjustment; the implications of foreign aid fungibility for development assistance; aid, growth, the incentive regime, and poverty reduction; microeconomic evidence on aid, policies, and investment productivity; the World Bank and sector investment programs in Africa; the World Bank, conditionality, and the Comprehensive Development Framework; and the current debates over conditionality, dependence, and coordination in aid policy. Gilbert is at the Free University, Amsterdam. Vines is at Balliol College, University of Oxford. Index.
