This report documents the development experience in rural, natural resources, and environment projects, as well as research and technical assistance activities through the Europe and Central Asia Region. Some of the important conclusions include: 1) In general, the greatest transformation have taken place in the price and market environment, while the most substantial lag in reforms has been in solving the problems of financing agriculture and in the area of institutional reforms. 2) There are considerable differences in the reform performance of individual countries. The transformation of agriculture is most advanced in Central Europe, and in the European Union candidate countries. 3) The difference between the greater success of the more rapidly reforming countries and the stagnation of the slow reformers suggests that a brief but acute transition is better than long chronic economic sluggishness that accompanies slow transition. 4) In all countries, the process of agricultural reform has been strongly influenced by day-to-day politics. 5) The method of stakeholder consultations and participatory approaches have proven especially effective rather than the prescriptive or advice-based approach. 6) Clear land ownership rights are essential ingredients for rural development."
