World Bank Public Works Programme in the South Asia Region
ODI have been commissioned by the World Bank to conduct a review of Public Works Programmes in the South Asia Region (SAR). This review will constitute an overview and analysis of PWP activity in the region. It will provide a reference list of current and recent programmes, and a narrative report outlining key programme design and implementation features, and exploring key regional issues relating to design, impact, political economy, and the fiscal implications of public works implementation. The findings will be presented in such a way as to inform and contribute to ongoing discussion on the feasibility of large scale public works programming in Nepal.
