Making aid work in fragile states: Case studies of effective aid-financed programs
(World Bank, 2004) - A paper commission by The World Bank, which aims to highlight examples of successful aid-financed programs in fragile states, and to learn lessons that can inform the design of future aid interventions in countries in which the environment is different or more difficult than in more stable contexts. Cases studies include projects in Afghanistan, Cambodia, East Timor, and Northern Uganda.
Developing Poverty Reduction Strategies in Low Income Countries Under Stress
(Agulhas, 2005) - This study is a rapid assessment of the experience so far of conducting Poverty Reduction Strategies (PRSs) in Low-Income Countries Under Stress (LICUS). The study's conclusion is that PRS principles and practices are directly applicable to LICUS, and should be introduced as soon as feasible. The undertaking is of course more difficult in a LICUS, and the results more modest and harder to sustain. Nonetheless, the PRS is the right tool for addressing the deep-seated problems with domestic institutions and policy processes found in LICUS, and for structuring the donor-government relationship into a more effective development partnership.
