Empowerment Empowerment in Practice: Empowerment has become a familiar term within many development agencies. Empowerment objectives also appear with increasing frequency in policy documents issued by governments. Yet there are many different interpretations of what empowerment means. This volume offers one way of understanding the concept, using a simple framework that can be laid across both analytic and operational work to identify issues, focus discussion, and prioritize practical entry points for promoting and tracking empowerment. Empowerment is defined in this volume as the process of enhancing an individual's or group's capacity to make purposive choices and to transform those choices into desired actions and outcomes. The framework presented suggests that investments and interventions can empower people by focusing on the dynamic and iterative relationship between agency and structure.

Access for All: In the past ten years, the world of microfinance has changed Access for All: In the past ten years, the world of microfinance has changed dramatically. The field has moved rapidly from early innovations in providing loans to help poor entrepreneurs start businesses to a bold vision of creating entire financial systems that work for the poor. Microfinance has proven to be an effective tool for reducing poverty and helping poor people to improve their lives. And yet a diverse range of potential clients still lack access to an array of financial services - not just credit for enterprise but also a safe place to save, the ability to transfer funds to family members, insurance against sickness or other household disasters, and other ways to mitigate risk in vulnerability. The challenge today is to engage more types of distribution systems, more technologies and more talent to create financial systems that work for the poor and boost their contribution to economic growth. This title explains what this new vision of microfinance means in practical, nontechnical terms.

A New Social Contract for Peru: This book examines the issues of accountability in A New Social Contract for Peru: This book examines the issues of accountability in the delivery of public services. Each chapter of the book incorporates, in addition to technical, economic, and statistical analysis, an analysis of the institutional context for service delivery. A common theme that cuts across this book is the issue of accountability as developed by the World Bank in its World Development Report: Making Services Work for Poor People (2004). The book recommends three types of interventions: (a) quality standards and quantitative goals need to be set, (b) accountability chains need to be established so that providers take responsibility for their services; and (c) investments are needed to create and sustain the capacity to reach these goals.

A Comparative Analysis of School-Based Management in Central America: This paper provides a comparative A Comparative Analysis of School-Based Management in Central America: This paper provides a comparative analysis of school-based management reforms in four Central American countries (EDUCO in El Salvador, PRONADE in Guatemala, PROHECO in Honduras, and Centros Autonomos in Nicaragua). It starts by providing a characterization of the models and then reviews how they have expanded community participation and empowerment and school decision-making autonomy. It then continues by analyzing the impact of community and school empowerment on the teaching-learning process, including measures of teacher effort; and assesses the impact of the models on several educational outcomes, relating this impact with the teaching-learning environment and community empowerment. Finally, the paper attempts to explain the impact of the reforms by discussing how variations in reform design, country contexts and actors' assets can explain differences and similarities in result.

Cities in a Globalizing World: Cities in a Globalizing World: "In a world moving very rapidly on both urbanization and globalization, cities in the developing world face both serious challenges and attractive opportunities. They can reap the benefits of economic growth by creating an enabling investment climate: well-functioning markets, institutions that support sound governance and regulatory regimes, and public infrastructure and social services. At the same time they can create an environment where their citizens are both included and empowered. And because cities do not exist in isolation, urban policies and programs must also be coordinated with national initiatives. Cities in a Globalizing World not only raises our awareness of issues that can only become still more pressing and still more critical to growth and equity in this century; it also provides important and valuable analyses of options for public action.
