Thus, the design of individual operations has ranged from very good in the roads sector to extremely poor in education (the Primary Education Project or PEP). Sequencing and complementarity of activities have been uneven. Projects in community development have built on previous phases (MASAF -1, 2 and 3), and in PFM have also provided continued support to key areas (IDP2, FIMTAP, Fiscal Restructuring and Development Projects - 1, 2 and 3). This has ensured general coherence and improvement in capacity building efforts over time, though individual activities have been criticized. In the education sector, this link has been missing completely, while in health new interventions are building on the lessons from the PFH. There seems to be little if any cross-sector learning except from MASAF to social sectors at the community level. 4.16 In sum, Bank strategies have been well aligned with Malawi's own stated development priorities, though over time the Bank has narrowed the focus of its country program to a few issues. While the underlying diagnostic work generally has been good, economic analysis has been better than the analysis of political conditions in the country, and some studies have been too heavily Bank-driven to have generated ownership or enhanced local skills. Shortcomings in the diagnostic work have hampered the design of capacity building activities, which on the whole has been weak. Finally, despite continued emphasis on capacity building needs in the CAS, there has been no improvement in the clarity of capacity building goals in the country program and the strategic direction of the Bank?s support is not well articulated.
