  • This note aims to encourage operations managers and staff not only to give priority to project implementation performance but also to balance it with sustainable institutional capacity development beyond the project.

This note reflects lessons learned and draws on existing good practices in the expectation that they can become the rule rather than the exception.

  • Since President Lyndon Johnson’s declaration of War on Poverty and the passage of the Economic Opportunity Act of 1964, optimism that had surrounded those measures has faded. The economic, fiscal, and social conditions of the old central cities have declined, while their inner-ghetto areas have become zones of calamity. Their residents are not only living in poverty, but they must also contend with levels of drug use and violence that, although currently in decline, would have seemed inconceivable in the early 1960s.

  • There are no criteria available to judge the quality of these crea- tive expressions, because, as Wall states, aesthetic criteria are only valid within the classic disciplines—painting, drawing, sculpture, the graphic arts, and photography. These ‘canonical forms’ are still thriving, by the way, in spite of all efforts by artists to subvert them from within; but they thrive as a separate sector within contempo- rary art, as a genre with its own laws and standards.

  • As concerns P, the most common approach is to simply use total population levels. However, as MacKellar et al.
