Reason for Selection
The CASCR provides a good accounting of implementation of the CAS. The quality of evidence is good as is the analysis of progress towards long-term development outcomes. The CASCR illustrates achievements with concrete examples and also contains a good political economy analysis. Particularly commendable is the effort made to determine what went wrong and why in areas where performance fell short of expectations. There are a number of good lessons, well-based on the analysis, and good recommendations for moving forward. The results chains linking the Bank's intervention to CAS outcomes in the original CAS are not very clear and these problems are recognized in the CASCR. The CASCR is candid and concise, internally consistent, and well-structured.
