WORLD DEVELOPMENT REPORT 2013 Jobs Recent world events have put jobs at the center of the policy debate. In advanced economies, there is concern about a jobless recovery; in developing countries, continued growth cannot shield workers who are vulnerable to shocks. Political upheavals in the Arab world have highlighted the discontent of educated youth whose employment opportunities fall short of their expectations. World Development Report 2012: Jobs explains and analyzes the connection between jobs and important dimensions of economic and social development. The Report provides analytical tools to identify the obstacles to sustained job creation and examine differences in the nature of jobs, which in turn affects the potential of jobs to raise living standards, increase aggregate productivity, and enhance social cohesion. It explores the notion of a "good job" in that some jobs do more for economic and social development than others, because they reduce poverty and inequality, strengthen value chains and production clusters, or help build trust and shared values. WDR 2013 examines efforts to stimulate production of higher value-added goods and services, boost the demand for labor, prepare today's youth to become productive members of society, and ensure an efficient matching of supply and demand of labor. But it also looks beyond the labor market, identifying the complementary policies needed to support the necessary structural shifts and the supply of needed skills. Infrastructure development, policies for competition and innovation, reforms in educational and training systems to equip tomorrow's workers with the relevant skills, and the architecture of social protection all have a bearing on the chances to create more and better jobs.

The Report seeks to articulate a vision that cuts across sectors, addressing the dynamic links between growth strategies and jobs, and providing tools to consider policies and programs from a jobs perspective. It strives to provide a framework to address the most difficult jobs-related questions facing policy makers in developing countries.

GLOBAL FINANCIAL DEVELOPMENT REPORT 2013 Rethinking the Role of the State in Finance How should we measure and assess financial development around the globe? Why has financial development progressed so quickly in some regions and countries while seriously lagging in other parts of the world? At what point does the financial sector become too large or too complex? What mix of banks, other financial institutions, and financial markets is the best from the broader development perspective? How can healthy competition in the provision of financial services be ensured? Which policies help in supporting robust financial development, and which ones do not? And which ones help in providing people and firms with better access to finance? These are the types of questions that are addressed by this new annual publication from the World Bank Group, the Global Financial Development Report 2013. The main theme of this inaugural report is Rethinking the Role of the State in Finance. Launched exactly four years after the Lehman Brothers failure, the report uses the experience of the global financial crisis to re-examine a basic question: what is the proper role of the state in achieving sustainable financial development? GLOBAL FINANCIAL DEVELOPMENT REPORT

September 2012. 300 pages. Stock no. C19503 (ISBN: 978-0-8213-9503-5). US$35

The crisis has challenged conventional thinking on the role of the state, and on financial sector policies. It has led to much debate on how best to achieve sustainable development. Among other things, the crisis has revived the notion that direct state intervention in the financial sector can help maintain stability, drive growth, and create jobs. The report examines this notion as well as the evidence of potentially harmful effects of some forms of the state’s interventions. It also navigates through ideological divides and doctrinaire positions and delivers relevant, rigorous policy analyses and advice.

GLOBAL DEVELOPMENT HORIZONS 2012 Capital for the Future: Changing Needs and Opportunities in Global Investment Of all the developments that link present and future generations and tie the world's economies together, none is more influential than how financial capital is allocated across firms, industries, and nations. In both its transnational and intergenerational functions, capital plays an essential role in determining the future course of the world economy and prosperity. The pronounced shift in the global demand for and supply of capital has led to the start of what Global Development Horizons 2012 identifies as the Third Age of Financial Globalization, during which developing countries will become highly integrated into the global financial system—similar to their degree of integration in the international trade system at the present. Looking ahead, several long-term trends are likely to transform patterns of global investment flows:

If managed well, this Third Age will benefit developing countries in several ways. It will allow for the diversification of idiosyncratic national risks, the imposition of greater market discipline on policy making, increased capacity for balance of payments financing, and the opportunity to supplement domestic savings in ramping up long-term investment and growth. Such benefits will be particularly valuable to developing countries with young populations and large infrastructure investment needs.

INFORMATION AND COMMUNICATIONS FOR DEVELOPMENT 2012 Maximizing Mobile Information and Communications for Development 2012 (IC4D) highlights the transformative potential that mobile applications holds for different sectors of the economy—health, agriculture, financial services—and the potential they bring for stimulating economic growth and entrepreneurship in developing economies, and engaging a citizen-centric approach to the delivery of government services. The report positions mobile applications as more than just software code running on a mobile handset, but rather highlights the need to develop an ecosystem of supporting services to ensure that mobile applications achieve their full development potential. The IC4D report is a biannual publication of the World Bank Group, and has become the World Bank's flagship publication on ICT policy and market trends. The first volume, Global Trends and Policies, was published in 2006 followed by the second issue, Extending Reach and Increasing Impact, in 2009. Over time, it has a gained a reputation for informed analysis and insight.

INCLUSIVE GREEN GROWTH The Pathway to Sustainable Development As the global population heads toward 9 billion by 2050, decisions made today will lock countries into growth patterns that may or may not be sustainable in the future. Care must be taken to ensure that cities and roads, factories and farms are designed, managed, and regulated as efficiently as possible to wisely use natural resources while supporting the robust growth developing countries still need. Economic development during the next two decades cannot mirror the previous two: poverty reduction remains urgent but growth and equity can be pursued without relying on policies and practices that foul the air, water, and land. Inclusive Green Growth: The Pathway to Sustainable Development makes the case that greening growth is necessary, efficient, and affordable.

TOWARD GENDER EQUALITY IN EAST ASIA AND THE PACIFIC A Companion to the World Development Report Toward Gender Equality in East Asia and the Pacific examines the relationship between gender equality and development and outlines an agenda for public action to promote more effective and inclusive development in East Asian and Pacific countries. Written as a companion to the World Development Report 2012: Gender Equality and Development, the report finds that promoting gender equality contributes to higher productivity, income growth, and poverty reduction; improves the opportunities and outcomes for the next generation; and enhances the quality of development policymaking.

First, the report presents new data and evidence that significantly strengthen the empirical basis for policymaking on gender and development in the region. Second, the report provides new analysis of the gender dimensions and policy implications of several global trends that are particularly important in the region, including increasing economic integration, rapid adoption of new information and communication technologies, rising domestic and international migration flows, rapid urbanization, and population aging.

ECONOMIC MOBILITY AND THE RISE OF THE LATIN AMERICAN MIDDLE CLASS By Francisco H. G. Ferreira, Julian Messina, Jamele Rigolini, Luis Felipe Lรณpez-Calva and Renos Vakis

With moderate but sustained economic growth and generally declining inequality, the 2000s were a good decade for Latin America. Moderate poverty fell from roughly 40% to 30% of the population. Economic mobility powered a perceived increase in the ranks of the Latin American middle class.

LATIN AMERICA AND CARIBBEAN STUDIES

But who, exactly, belongs to that middle class? How much has it really grown? How much economic mobility do these countries really display? Drawing on a unique combination of data sets - income and consumption distributions, test scores, parental characteristics, personal beliefs and attitudes - this volume sheds new light on a period of pronounced social change in Latin America and the Caribbean. It paints a nuanced picture of a society where the intergenerational transmission of socioeconomic status still prevails, but where upward income movement within generations is now significant. It adopts a middle class definition that is based on economic security, and is arguably less arbitrary than others in the literature.

September 2012. 152 pages. Stock no. C19634 (ISBN: 978-0-8213-9634-6). US$25.95

Yet, most of the continent's population is neither poor nor middle-class - but nearpoor or vulnerable. The authors argue that there are many potential benefits from a growing middle class, but caution that whether those benefits come to fruition will depend, to a large extent, on whether countries manage to anchor their middle classes into a new, more cohesive, social contract that emphasizes the inclusion of those who so far have been left behind.

THE NEW MICROFINANCE HANDBOOK A Financial Market System Perspective By Joanna Ledgerwood and Julie F. Earne

The New Microfinance Handbook takes a market systems approach to financial inclusion, oriented by client needs. Framing the book with the client as the central element recognizes the emerging awareness that financial needs of the poor are many and are provided by multiple market players beyond the scope of any single institutional form. The book explores the fundamentals of this expanded view through examining client needs (demand), products and providers (supply), and the support systems required to increase financial access to the poor with a focus on operational support, rules and regulations, infrastructure and delivery channels, information, and funding. The objective of The New Microfinance Handbook is to provide a strategic guide to help assess the financial service needs of the poor and to determine how a diversified financial sector can address these needs. It takes a different approach from the original Microfinance Handbook. Rather than taking an 'institutional' perspective (supply driven), the book considers the clients and their needs (demand side) and how the market can December 2012. 504 pages. better meet their needs first and foremost. The result is a book which is less of a 'howStock no. C18927 (ISBN: 978-0-8213-8927-0).

The book aims to facilitate access to and usage of financial products and services that genuinely meet the many needs of the poor through various sustainable financial service providers.

EMPOWERING WOMEN Legal Rights and Economic Opportunities in Africa By Mary Hallward-Driemeier and Tazeen Hasan

The importance of property rights in providing the incentive to invest, work hard, and innovate has been recognized for centuries. Yet, many women in Africa do not have the same property rights or formal legal capacity enjoyed by men. Empowering Women: Legal Rights and Economic Opportunities in Africa documents the extent to which the legal capacity and property rights vary for women and men, and analyzes the impact this has on women’s economic opportunities. The book introduces the 'Women’s Legal Economic Empowerment Database – Africa (Women LEED Africa),' that covers all 47 countries in Sub-Saharan Africa, providing indicators and links to constitutions, ratified international conventions, and domestic statutes where there are gender gaps in legal capacity and property rights. It shows how and where, despite universal constitutional recognition of non-discrimination, many countries have exceptions in areas of marriage, ownership, and control over property and inheritance. After laying out the various gender gaps in legal capacity and property rights, the book addresses the additional challenges stemming from legal systems with multiple August 2012. 220 pages. sources of law.

THE INFORMAL SECTOR IN FRANCOPHONE AFRICA Firm Size, Productivity, and Institutions By Nancy Benjamin and Ahmadou Aly Mbaye

In West Africa a dynamic informal sector dominates the stagnant formal economy. Small operators coexist with very large and politically well-connected informal enterprises and well-organized networks. To date there have been relatively few systematic studies of this dual feature, and consequently too little is known about it. Determinants and appropriate policy responses are likely to differ between 'large' and 'small' informal operations. This study focuses on the urban informal sector in three capital cities: Dakar (Senegal), Cotonou (Benin) and Ouagadougou (Burkina Faso). These three countries have important differences and as a group, are quite representative of francophone West Africa and to a lesser extent West Africa as a whole.

A mix of quantitative and qualitative approaches was used, with data obtained from original surveys of 900 firms in the three cities, interviews with knowledgeable stakeholders and participants, and all available secondary data. The results for West Africa presented in this book corroborate many findings from earlier studies, particularly for small informal firms. In addition, the book breaks new ground by shedding light on the large informal sector and the influence of institutional and socio-cultural factors in shaping the informal sector.

STRUCTURAL TRANSFORMATION AND RURAL CHANGE REVISITED Challenges for Late Developing Countries in a Globalizing World By Bruno Losch, Sandrine Freguin-Gresh and Eric Thomas White

This book makes a compelling case for reintegrating structural issues into agricultural and rural development policies, which have for the last 30 years over-focused on shortterm issues. It shows how the liberalization of agriculture in many late developing countries has not in fact led to the development of the vibrant rural non-farm economy, nor has it led to a large-scale integration of agricultural producers into the global economy. Despite these findings, the book draws optimistic conclusions: there are a clear set of policy priorities that, if adapted to individual country contexts, can facilitate an enduring and productive rural transformation. The book is based on an in-depth seven-country study that surveyed 8,000 rural households. It specifically focuses on these households’ activity and income structures in an evolving agricultural context marked by liberalization and trends of increasing economic integration. In doing so it reviews the very different levels (and trajectories) of rural diversification among countries at various stages in the structural transformation process. AFRICA DEVELOPMENT FORUM

THE POLITICAL ECONOMY OF DECENTRALIZATION IN FOUR SUB-SAHARAN AFRICAN COUNTRIES Burkina Faso, Senegal, Ghana, and Kenya Edited by Bernard Dafflon and Thierry Madies

For two decades now, experiences in decentralization and federalization have been in progress in many countries, particularly in Sub Saharan Africa. How can these processes be understood and improved? Focusing on four Sub-Saharan countries (Burkina Faso, Ghana, Kenya and Senegal), this volume applies an original approach to address such questions. This book does not attempt to transpose an ideal Western model - which does not exist. Here, decentralization is viewed as a sequential process, implying choices that are the sole responsibility of the country concerned. For each of the four countries, the authors provide a diagnosis of how decentralization is organized in practice and compare this with the institutional architecture adopted. This analysis of the gaps separating what is formally targeted and what has been achieved on the ground suggests possible directions for reform. A guide for analyzing decentralized policies is proposed, which is useful to help identify the issues at stake, point out stumbling blocks and ensure the coherence of decisions on decentralization.

USING PUBLIC GRAIN STOCKS FOR FOOD SECURITY By Sergiy Zorya, Robert Townsend and Christopher Delgado

As a reaction to higher and more volatile food prices, many developing countries accelerated accumulation and distribution of public grain stocks and many intend to establish new reserves. While the public stocks can indeed help smooth out local prices, induce growth and support the poor in a case of emergencies, they can also become a burden if improperly designed and managed. In the past, food stocks in many countries failed to achieve stated objectives and continue to place large costs on taxpayers and the economy. This report reviews the lessons learned from evidence from a wide number of cases around the developing world, mistakes made, and successes achieved, and recommends main principles for successful management of stocks to enhance food security.

FOOD, FARMS AND FIELDS IN CHINA 2030 The Role of Agriculture in a Modernizing Society By Luc Christiaensen

China's success in feeding its population and lifting its farmers out of poverty over the past thirty years has been nothing less than remarkable. But new challenges have presented themselves and old ones are resurfacing. First, farmers' incomes are struggling to keep up with non-farm incomes—agriculture's "farm (income) problem"—undermining social and political harmony and putting its smallholder model under pressure. Second, rising water scarcity and land degradation are rendering China's current agricultural intensification model unsustainable, saddling it with a rapidly growing "field problem". Finally, two bouts of double-digit food price inflation over the past three years suggest that aggregate domestic supply is struggling again to keep up with rapidly rising cereal feed demand for its animal production, testing its ambitions of cereal self-sufficiency and hinting at a resurgence of the "food problem". But, as urbanization and income growth induce more proteinrich and diversified diets, new opportunities also open up for China's farmers, as their production is more remunerative and less land- and water- intensive. This book advances a vision for China's agriculture in 2030 and a set of policy recommendations.

RENEWABLE ENERGY DESALINATION An Emerging Solution to Close the Water Gap in the Middle East and North Africa Edited by Bekele Debele Negewo

The Middle East and North Africa (MENA) Region is one of the most water stressed regions in the world. Due to increasing population and projected climate change impacts, MENA's annual water demand gap is projected to grow five-fold by 2050, from today’s 42 Km3 to 200 km3 by 2050. Despite its extreme scarcity, water is managed poorly. Inefficiencies are common in the agriculture, municipal and industrial systems; and many utilities are financially unsustainable. As a result, countries overexploit their fossil aquifers—and use desalination by fossil fuel-to meet the water demand gap. Desalination is costly, energy intensive and has environmental impacts. Overexploitation of fossil aquifers is not sustainable. Neither is the use of fossil fuel for desalination to meet the growing water gap. This book outlines the challenges in terms of water (and also in terms of energy) that countries in the region face and analyzes the scope of available options to address the growing water gap. It estimates MENA’s water gap today and into the future—until 2050, and presents a methodology to prioritize options to bridge the water gap, using the ‘marginal cost of water' approach. The book also assesses the viability of renewable energy desalination as an important option to close the Region’s water gap.

ADAPTATION TO A CHANGING CLIMATE IN THE ARAB COUNTRIES A Case for Adaptation Governance and Leadership in Building Climate Resilience Edited by Dorte Verner

In the Arab countries, climate change is a risk to poverty reduction and economic growth, threatening to unravel many of the development gains that have been achieved. The Arab Region is already suffering adverse consequences from climate variability and change. This book provides information on climate change and its impact in the Arab Region, as well as technical guidance on climate adaptation options for policy makers. The areas addressed include the economic impacts of climate change (as measured by the reduction in household income and GDP); the impacts of climate change on the water, health, and tourism sectors; livelihoods and well-being in rural and urban areas; biodiversity; disaster risk management; as well as gender and other social relations.

WORK AND FAMILY Latin American and Caribbean Women in Search of a New Balance By Laura Chioda

Over recent decades the Latin America and the Caribbean region has seen a dramatic and virtually uninterrupted rise in female labor force participation. Women there have increased their participation faster than in any other region of the world, adding nearly 70 million women to the labor force. Female enrollment rates from primary to tertiary education have increased to the point of closing or even reversing the gender gap. Family structures have changed markedly, and fertility rates have started to decline. And social norms have shifted toward gender equality. Recent research from developed countries has stressed the roles and interactions of microsocial factors in determining the economic opportunities available to women and, by extension, the evolution of female economic participation (such as labor supply and sectoral choices). These factors include human capital (education and health), social norms and preferences, and family formation and household structure.

Work and Family views the evolution of female participation through this micro lens, drawing on the emerging literature on family formation and household structure, which views many important choices as resulting from intrahousehold bargaining. Without negating the ongoing agenda to ensure equal opportunity in the workplace, this approach shifts the focus to dynamics within the household and provides a powerful framework for interpreting the evolution of gender-related patterns.

URBAN AGRICULTURE Case studies of Accra, Bangalore, Lima, and Nairobi and a Global Review By Daniel Hoornweg, Marielle Dubbeling, Judy Baker, Anjali Acharya and Gisela Campillo

Urban agriculture offers important contributions to sustainable urban development and poverty reduction in cities. Although urban agriculture cannot be expected to meet the food consumption requirements of all urban residents, it can have a critical role to play in food security and nutrition, particularly for the urban poor. It can also contribute to urban resilience, in the face of increasing climate variability, and also promote resource efficiency, by stimulating the productive reuse of organic wastes in cities. At the same time, city decision-makers need to take into account competing land uses, and how best to allocate scarce urban land for agriculture, when other activities such as manufacturing and services, as well as infrastructure, are key to economic vibrancy in a dense urban setting. This report offers useful lessons and experiences on urban agriculture in developing countries, providing a detailed review of urban agriculture from different regions of the world: Accra, Bangalore, Lima, and Nairobi. The case studies of these four cities are placed within the broader context of the state of urban agriculture globally, the use and re-use of scarce resources and wastes, and the economics of urban agriculture.

THE ECONOMICS OF UNIQUENESS Historic Cities and Cultural Heritage Assets as Public Goods Edited by Guido Licciardi and Rana Amirtahmasebi

In a world where half of the population lives in cities and more than 90 percent of urban growth is occurring in the developing world, cities struggle to modernize without completely losing their unique character, which is embodied by their historic cores and cultural heritage assets. As countries develop, cultural heritage can provide a crucial element of continuity and stability: the past can become a foundation for the future. This book collects innovative research papers authored by leading scholars and practitioners in heritage economics, and presents the most current knowledge on how heritage assets can serve as drivers of local economic development. What this book tries to suggest is a workable approach to explicitly take into account the cultural dimensions of urban regeneration in agglomerations that have a history and possess a unique character, going beyond an approach based solely on major cultural heritage assets or landmarks. The knowledge disseminated through this book will help stakeholders involved in preparation, implementation, and supervision of development investments to better assess the values of cultural heritage assets and incorporate them in urban development policies.

EURASIAN CITIES New Realities along the Silk Road By Souleymane Coulibaly, Uwe Deichmann, William R. Dillinger, Marcel Ionescu-Heroiu, Ioannis N. Kessides, Charles Kunaka and Daniel Saslavsky

Faced with changing economic circumstances and a reorientation of trade toward Europe and Asia, will Eurasia’s cities be able to adjust? Will some cities be granted the flexible regulations and supportive policies necessary for growth? And will some be permitted to shrink and their people assisted in finding prosperity elsewhere in the region? This report responds to these pressing questions for policymakers in Eurasian cities and national governments. Even as Eurasian cities diverge, they face shared challenges. Policymakers have a key role in assisting spatial restructuring, particularly in addressing imperfect information and coordination failures. They can do so by rethinking cities, better planning them, better connecting them, greening them and finding new ways to finance these changes. Eurasian cities will also have to find the right balance between markets and institutions to become sustainable. As the World Development Report 2009: Reshaping Economic Geography illustrates, Eurasia (excluding Russia) is a 3D region - a region with low density, long distance, EASTERN EUROPE AND CENTRAL ASIA REPORTS and many divisions.

COMMUNITY-BASED LANDSLIDE RISK REDUCTION Managing Disasters in Small Steps By Malcolm G. Anderson and Liz Holcombe

Community-based Landslide Risk Reduction details the MoSSaiC (Management of Slope Stability in Communities) methodology, which aims to create behavioral change in vulnerable communities in developing countries. It deals with the landslide hazard trigger most relevant to vulnerable urban communities in developing countries: rainfall-induced instability on soil slopes. Focusing on maximizing within-country capacity to deliver landslide mitigation measures on the ground, it provides an endto-end blueprint for the mitigation process: building the necessary teams, detailed community-based slope stability assessment, construction of drainage measures for reducing the hazard, and the audit of outputs and outcomes. This book is a resource for policy-makers, project managers, and practitioners in developing countries. August 2012. 448 pages. Stock no. C19456 (ISBN: 978-0-8213-9456-4). US$39.95

INTERNATIONAL MIGRATION AND DEVELOPMENT IN EAST ASIA AND THE PACIFIC By Ahmad Ahsan

The East Asia and Pacific region has an international emigrant population of over 21 million people, who remitted more than USD 90 billion to their home countries in 2010. The region also hosts more than 7 million migrant workers, mostly from other Asian countries. These migrant workers account for 20 percent or more of the labor force in economies such as Malaysia and Singapore and thus play a significant role in the economies of the labor-receiving countries. The ageing of the population in many East Asian countries will create significant labor shortages leading to greater demand for migrant workers. For these reasons, international labor mobility is emerging as an important development issue in East Asia with important implications for the Bank's mission of poverty reduction and supporting sustainable economic development in the region. In this context, this study analyzes the impact of migration on development of the region and how international migration should be managed in East Asia in a way that supports development goals while simultaneously protecting the rights of migrants.

ON THE TAKE Criminalizing Illicit Enrichment to Fight Corruption By Lindy Muzila, Michelle Morales, Marianne Mathias and Tammar Berger

Despite broad international recognition of the criminalization of illicit enrichment, it has not been universally accepted as an anti-corruption measure. Instead, criminalization of illicit enrichment continues to generate extensive debate and controversy. Against this background, this study aims to provide an analysis of how illicit enrichment works, and attempts to shed light on any contributions that it has made to the fight against corruption and the recovery of stolen assets. Rather than delving into the theoretical and academic debates around illicit enrichment, this study focuses primarily on the analysis of current practice, case law, and existing literature to offer a new perspective to the on-going discussions. More specifically, the study addresses the legal framework upon which the concept of illicit enrichment rests, and the resulting policy implications of that legal framework. It also focuses on illicit enrichment as an anti-corruption mechanism, from its roots as a response to the problems inherent to prosecutions involving corruption, to an examination of elements and inchoate offenses relating to illicit enrichment under international conventions. It examines illicit enrichment jurisprudence in the global context. An extensive survey was carried out to determine the countries where the offense exists, what form it takes, how often it is used, and for countries where it doesn't, what other measures are used in its place.

SOCIETAL DYNAMICS AND FRAGILITY Engaging Societies in Responding to Fragile Situations Societal Dynamics and Fragility aims to address the social dimensions of fragility. Prepared as a complement to the 2011 World Development Report, this book frames fragility as a problem not only of state capacity, but also of relationships in society. Drawing on analytical work in Liberia, Central African Republic, Yemen, Indonesia (Aceh) and Haiti, it recommends placing social cohesion at the center of development efforts in fragile environments by cultivating an in-depth understanding of the societal dynamics at play in each context and adapting programs to address the sources of division that hinder state building. Specifically, the book advocates a focus on perceptions of injustice at least as much as measurable inequalities, and for creating space to facilitate constructive connections between institutions, especially between customary and state structures as well as often-nascent civil society institutions.

INTEGRATING HUMAN RIGHTS INTO DEVELOPMENT Donor Approaches, Experiences, and Challenges Over the past two decades, human rights and development have been converging. There has been growing recognition of the links between rights violations, poverty, exclusion, environmental degradation, vulnerability, and conflict. This volume reviews the approaches of different donor agencies and their rationales for working on human rights. It is based on a thorough examination of policy, guidance and operational documents, evaluations and other analyses of practical experience as well as a large number of interviews with donor agencies. It identifies the current practice in this field and looks at the common elements of that practice. It also illustrates how aid agencies are working on human rights issues at the programming level, and what donors have done since 2006, charting significant changes and advances.

UNDERSTANDING POLICY CHANGE How to Apply Political Economy Concepts in Practice By Cristina Corduneanu-Huci, Alexander Hamilton and Issel Masses Ferrer

How does the social and political context in which decision-makers find themselves in affect their ability to realize their reform goals? How does this context facilitate or inhibit specific reform agendas and projects? How can we operationalize and evaluate these risks and opportunities in order to decide what reforms and projects are feasible given the circumstances? This book provides the reader with the full panoply of political economy tools and concepts necessary to understand, analyze, and integrate how political and social factors may influence the success or failure of their policy goals. Starting with the empirical puzzle of why corruption, rent seeking, and a lack of good governance emerge and persist in a host of countries and sectors the book reviews how collective action problems and the role of institutions, as well as a host of ancillary political economy concepts can affect the feasibility of different projects. However, the book is not just a one stop shop of political economy concepts, but also provides practical advice on how to organize and use this information via the introduction of stakeholder mapping tools and the development of an actionable political economy toolkit.

THE RIGHT SKILLS FOR THE JOB? Rethinking Training Policies for Workers Edited by Rita Almeida, Jere Behrman and David Robalino

Creating jobs and increasing productivity are at the top of agenda for policymakers across the world. This report brings new ideas on how to build and upgrade job relevant skills, focusing on three types of training programs relevant for individuals who are leaving the formal general schooling system or are already in the labor market: nn nn nn

 re-employment technical and vocational education and training (TVET) p on-the-job training (OJT) training-related active labor market programs (ALMPs)

Several previous studies have discussed some of the flaws in current systems and outlined options for reform. But, overall policies at these three levels of the training systems remain disconnected and there has not been an integrated framework linking them to the market and government failures that need to be addressed. This book makes two important contributions. First, it takes an in-depth look at the types of market and government failures that can result in underinvestment in training or the supply of skills that are not immediately relevant to the labor market. Second, building on the analysis of the limitations of both markets and governments and the results of case studies and recent impact evaluations, the report develops new ideas to improve the design and performance of current training programs, which often involve interventions outside the education and training systems.
