Possible Sources of Diverse Country Responses: Toward Identifying the Prerequisites for Ownership 7 F. Implications for Future Bank Operations. 1 Bank assessments of structural adjustment lending explicitly acknowledge that program outcome depends heavily on the political and institutional environment prevailing in the borrowing country.

Notably, it is seldom made clear as to what constitutes adequate ownership, or what can be done to increase and sustain that fundamental commitment to the adjustment program. The objective of this paper is to highlight the symbiotic relationship between program outcome and borrower ownership.
