Summary: The purpose of this report is to take stock of the state of the current thinking on rural infrastructure issues. It is based on an evaluation of the World Bank's operations with a rural infrastructure (RI) component, as well as literature review on topics directly or indirectly related to the subject. Each of these two components proved to be a challenge, for almost the opposite reasons. As the report points out, there are no clear blueprints for success, largely because success seems to depend so much on human factors that we do not understand well. There is a large repertory of successes and failures, but it is difficult to distinguish between the principles that explain these successes and failures and the case-specific factors that condition the outcome of individual operations. After the report's introduction, Chapter 2 summarizes the trends and achievements in past Bank lending for rural infrastructure, and draws broad conclusions from this lending experience. Chapters 3 through 6 detail specific points relating respectively to decentralization, accountability, and commitment, poverty, and economic and financial issues.
