Workshop Organization

The workshops were developed on a country or region-specific basis related to the needs of IBRD projects requiring EA. Participants were selected from diverse specialties, most possessing graduate-level training, which permitted development of skill-sets required by decision-makers. A common core of material, summarizing the state of EA in other countries of the region, was also presented to all workshops and served as a method to both analyze the status of a given country’s regulations and develop a network of individuals with similar backgrounds (see Table 4).

In nearly all cases, the participants were highly motivated, primarily because workshops are organized around a practical problem with which they were involved. They brought the full range of experiences to the table, at times helping to define an appropriate case study. If, for example, staff from the environment ministry felt that organizational and managerial performance was hampered through arbitrary interference by political and government authorities, they might organize a strategy to minimize bureaucracy and maximize autonomy at an appropriate institutional level.

The workshops were innovative and catalytic not only because they increased in-country capability to undertake environmental and social assessment, but also because they improved the Bank’s ability to administer loans. Ultimately the goal is to produce a cadre of trained EA professionals in each World Bank borrower country that would work as watchdogs and be involved in policy development and institution building.
