In low-income countries, evidence from some public-works schemes shows a sharper investment return-poverty reduction tradeoff: the greater the emphasis in generating high-quality investments from public works, the harder it is for the program to reach the extreme poor. Meanwhile many public works programs in the poorest countries do not come with clear and lucid criteria for programmatic changes or dissolution, and therefore tend to last well beyond their intended lifespan. Fragmented coverage and a weak capacity to respond in times of need can undermine the credibility of public works programs to perform their insurance function for the poor in low-income countries.
