The Berlin Workshop Series 2004 presents selected papers from
meetings held July 8-10, 2002, at the fifth annual forum co-hosted by
InWEnt and the World Bank in preparation for the Bank's World
Development Report. At the 2002 meetings, key researchers and
policymakers from Europe, the United States, and developing countries
met to identify and brainstorm on development challenges and successes
that were later examined in-depth in the World Development Report
2004: Making Services Work for Poor People.
This volume presents papers from Berlin Workshop sessions on
delivery, financing, incentives, and innovations in service
provision—from the perspectives of nongovernmental organizations,
the private sector, and governments. The workshop investigated how
countries could accelerate progress toward the Millennium Development
Goals by making service work for people living in poverty. Participants
hailed successful innovations; took a hard look at some of the
failures; and drew conclusions about how to learn from both in order to
guide policymakers, donors, and citizens on ways to improve the
delivery of basic services: health, education, and water.
