Public Works and Social Protection in Sub-Saharan Africa

Public Works Programmes (PWPs) are widely implemented in developing countries, often with funding from major international donor agencies. They are perceived as a ‘win-win’ policy option, providing employment to the chronically poor while also creating assets for the state, and in this way offering a welfare transfer which is also a tangible economic investment. This book critically explores the concept of the PWP and interrogates its social protection performance in the context of chronic poverty. It reviews over 200 PWPs in eastern and southern Africa using original research drawn from extensive field analysis, interviews and survey work, and examines case studies of six international PWPs – in India, Argentina, Ireland, Ethiopia, Indonesia and the USA. The author explores the function and limitations of PWPs, and argues that the current PWP approach may not look so attractive from the beneficiary perspective. This book is of interest to academics and students in economics and sociology, policy-makers and -designers, and donor officials.

Sustainability Science: A Multidisciplinary Approach

Sustainability science is an academic discipline that emerged in response to threats to the sustainability of the global environment. Its purpose is to help build a sustainable society by developing solutions to climate change, the exhaustion of resources, ecological destruction and other environmental crises that threaten humanity. Sustainability science demands a realignment of existing academic disciplines. Whereas academia has fragmented into discrete fields of in-depth specialization, sustainability science seeks comprehensive, integrated solutions to complex problems and a restructuring of education and research that spans multiple disciplines. This volume offers approaches to the development of a transdisciplinary perspective that embraces natural, social and human sciences in the quest for a sustainable society. Sustainability science demands the development of policies that protect the natural and cultural diversity of different regions and promotes the physical and economic health of their inhabitants. This volume strives for a global perspective while incorporating the wisdom and experience of local societies.

Achieving Global Sustainability: Policy Recommendations

Global sustainability is the most serious issue facing humanity today. One of the biggest factors in the deterioration of global sustainability is climate change, which is exacerbated by human activities and is inextricably related to modern civilization. Solving this requires a drastic redesign of society from all aspects – technological, economic and social. This book looks at how to achieve a more secure level of global sustainability and gathers recommendations. First, the relationship between globalization and sustainability is analyzed, together with arguments on the necessity of a paradigm shift in economic growth. Second, paradigm shifts in socioeconomic development are discussed in terms of social common capital, social discipline and economic valuation of the environment. Third, strategies for achieving a sustainable society are examined. Fourth is a presentation on adaptation for environmental change. Finally, policy recommendations for global sustainability are introduced, including those advocating a low-carbon society by 2050, a “Green New Deal” as a means of integrating policies, climate security, and international discipline.

Ecosystem Approaches to the Management of Ocean-related Activities: Training Manual

Healthy ecosystems provide invaluable functions and services that are essential to marine environment and human well-being. Unfortunately, some human activities have had an adverse impact on the structure and functioning of marine ecosystems. A multitude of stressors, such as pollution, overfishing, coastal development, invasive alien species, and climate change, have impaired the ability of these ecosystems to provide essential goods and services. This training manual focuses on the development and implementation of an ecosystem approach to the management of human activities and their impacts on the marine environment. An ecosystem approach is essentially an evolution of integrated coastal and ocean management, with a greater emphasis on ecosystem goals and objectives and their outcomes.

Collection of Municipal Solid Waste in Developing Countries

This book is written for developing countries. However, since it seeks to encourage the designing of waste collection systems based on local information, the approach is valid in any country. The main focus is on municipal solid waste, which is taken to include waste from households, businesses and institutions, construction and demolition waste (in small quantities), general solid wastes from hospitals (excluding hazardous wastes), waste from smaller industries that is not classified as hazardous, and wastes from streets, public areas and open drains. It is not concerned with wastes from agriculture, larger industries or the mining industries which normally handle their own.

Latin America and the Caribbean: Atlas of Our Changing Environment

Latin America and the Caribbean is the richest region of the planet in terms of its biological diversity. Within the dazzling array of the region's ecosystems lie roughly a third of the world's mammals and reptiles, two-fifths of the world's birds, and almost half of the world's amphibians. This diversity is sustained by the abundance of its ecosystems and wealth in natural resources and is also demonstrated in the mosaic of cultures and people that live there. The environment of Latin America and the Caribbean also reflects the interaction between human activities and natural processes, both past and present. This atlas demonstrates environmental change from imagery acquired from remote sensing by different satellites over time. Through images, maps, tables, graphs and text, it presents a picture of environmental evolution in Latin America and the Caribbean.

Green Hills, Blue Cities: An Ecosystems Approach to Water Resources Management for African Cities

Africa is currently the least urbanized region in the world, but this is changing fast. Of the billion people living on the African continent, about 40 per cent reside in urban areas. The urban population in Africa doubled from 205 million in 1990 to 400 million in 2010, and by 2050, it is expected that this will have tripled to 1.23 billion. Of this urban population, 60 per cent lives in slums. In a time of such urban growth, Africa is likely to experience some of the most severe impacts of climate change, particularly when it comes to water and food security.

Designing Our Future: Local Perspectives on Bioproduction, Ecosystems and Humanity

This publication focuses primarily on the social conceptualization and materialization of a society in which nature and humans coexist. The basis of this ideal society is assumed to be the relationship between villages or towns and their natural environment. How these villages and towns can achieve local or regional independence in the face of globalization is examined. Instead of the globalization of the world economy, which has led to the standardization and simplification of human values, this book proposes the establishment of a society in which nature and humans coexists through the networking of diverse communities to promote and achieve local independence. By drawing on various Asian concepts of how to live in harmony with nature, this volume is set to develop a new model for achieving regional sustainability.

Sustainable Coastal Tourism: An Integrated Planning and Management Approach

This handbook was conceived as a practical tool for policy makers and practitioners in both the tourism sector and ICZM (Integrated Coastal Zone Management). It provides a “two-way” scheme allowing for the integration of tourism strategic planning into the wider process of ICZM on one hand and, on the other, for the application of the ICZM approach in tourism development. The handbook tackles important issues related to coastal tourism and its positive and negative impacts on natural environment and society, as well as various planning and management schemes for tourism, with particular reference to ICZM. Individual steps of the proposed process of strategic planning for coastal tourism, based on the concept of Carrying Capacity Assessment, are presented in an Annex.

Global Biodiversity Outlook 3

This third edition of Global Biodiversity Outlook (GBO-3), produced by the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD) presents some stark choices for human societies. On the one hand it warns that the diversity of living things on the planet continues to be eroded as a result of human activities. The pressures driving the loss of biodiversity show few signs of easing, and in some cases are escalating. The consequences of current trends are much worse than previously thought, and place in doubt the continued provision of vital ecosystem services. On the other hand, the Outlook offers a message of hope. The options for addressing the crisis are wider than was apparent in earlier studies. Determined action to conserve biodiversity and use it sustainably will reap rich rewards. It will benefit people in many ways through better health, greater food security and less poverty.

Buildings and Climate Change: Summary for Decision-makers

The report, produced by UNEP’s Sustainable Buildings and Climate Initiative, a think tank and partnership between the UN and leading companies and organizations in the building sector, presents results from years of research with leading experts. Buildings contribute to well over one third of global energy use and associated greenhouse gas emissions, but also have a huge potential to achieve drastic emission reductions at virtually no cost. The current climate footprint from buildings is equivalent to 8.6 billion tons of CO2 a year and is predicted to almost double by 2030. In addition, the pressure to develop new buildings - as a result of population growth - will lead to a doubling of the existing building stock in developing countries by 2050. The report highlights the opportunity lying within buildings to deliver cuts in greenhouse gas emissions through policies, technologies and knowledge that already exist to deliver the cuts needed.

This report focuses on the global trends in sustainable energy development, covering both the renewable energy and energy efficiency sectors. This report shows that in spite of the global economic downturn, investment in sustainable energy is still strong. There is frustration that, while the UN Climate Convention in Copenhagen was not the big breakdown that might have occured, neither was it the big breakthrough so many had hoped for. Yet, determination on the part of many industry actors and governments (especially in rapid developing economies) to transform the financial and economic crisis into an opportunity for greener growth exists.

The Economics of Ecosystems and Biodiversity: TEEB for Local and Regional Policymakers

This new report prepared by The Economics of Ecosystems and Biodiversity (TEEB) initiative hosted by the United Nations Environment Programme, calls on local policymakers to understand the value of their natural capital and the services it provides and apply a focus on nature’s benefits in local policy areas such as urban management, spatial planning and protected areas management. The report aims to provide an inspiring starting point for thinking local policy in a new way. Highlighting practicality, the report calls for local authorities to take a stepwise approach to assessing options that factor nature’s benefits into local policy action. This approach includes: assessing ecosystem services and expected changes in their availability and distribution; identifying which ecosystem services are most relevant to particular policy issues; assessing impacts of policy options on different groups in the community.

Biodiversity Scenarios: Projections of 21st Century Change in Biodiversity and Associated Ecosystem Services

This synthesis focuses on estimates of biodiversity change as projected for the 21st Century by models or extrapolations based on experiments and observed trends. The publication also pays particular attention to the interactions between biodiversity and ecosystem services and to critical “tipping points” that could lead to large, rapid and potentially irreversible changes. Comparisons between models are used to estimate the range projections and to identify sources of uncertainty. Experiments and observed trends are used to check the plausibility of these projections. In addition, this report identifies possible actions at the local, national and international level that can be taken to conserve biodiversity.

The Future of International Environmental Law

Through a collection of essays by leading scholars in international environmental law from around the world, this book explores the future of international environmental law in a world of ever worsening environmental crises. It examines the success stories and the failures of international environmental law and argues that future responses to global environmental crisis will be more about good environmental governance rather than just more treaties and laws. Future environmental governance it is argued will need to accommodate the needs and aspirations of peoples from developed and developing countries alike and will have to be based on decisions and actions by a vast range of actors and stakeholders, as well as the nation state. This also suggests a need to be cognizant of the close links to other areas of international law, including human rights.

Human Development Report 2011

The 2011 Human Development Report examines the urgent global challenge of sustainable development, and its relationship to rising inequality within and among countries. It strives to identify policies that would make development both more sustainable and more equitable in the coming decades. The integral relationship between inequality and unsustainability is recognized. The inequitably apportioned control and consumption of natural resources is a key driver of global warming – and yet those who will suffer most from climate change are disproportionately those least responsible for environmental deterioration. The Report seeks to identify ways in which sustainability and equity can be jointly advanced. It examines long-term trends in inequality at national and global level, and argues why it is essential to promote practices today that will both increase sustainability and reduce inequality for future generations.

Economic Report on Africa 2011: Governing Development in Africa The Role of the State in Economic Transformation

Africa’s recovery strengthened from the GDP growth rate of 2.4 per cent in 2009 to 4.7 per cent in 2010 and a forecast of 5 per cent for 2011. This is due to a number of factors, including the rebound of exports and commodity prices; return of tourism; investment in infrastructure; increased activities in the service and telecommunication sectors; and increased consumer demand. However, many African economies are still characterized by heavy reliance on the primary sector, high vulnerability to external shocks, jobless growth and slow progress towards social development. It is essential for African countries to promote economic diversification and structural transformation as a means to accelerate and sustain broad-based and shared high employment-generating growth. Failure of earlier state-led and market-driven approaches to promoting economic transformation points to the need for fostering long-term investment, rapid and sustained economic growth, equity and social development within inclusive, transparent and comprehensive development frameworks.

Establishing a Resource-circulating Society in Asia: Challenges and Opportunities

Forthcoming

This book addresses issues associated with sustainable resource-circulating societies. It particularly focuses on Asia, where both population and economic growth are prominent, and covers topics related to technological or socioeconomic issues or a combination of both. The authors examine theories and visions pertinent to resource-circulating societies, as well as relevant practices and initiatives at the national and local level and through urban–rural linkages. They propose an integrative approach combining the concepts of a resource-circulating society and a low-carbon society, both of which constitute fundamental components of a sustainable society. Japan’s initiatives and practices, which have always been at the forefront in the promotion of resource-circulating societies and the dissemination of such concepts and practices in Asia, may have a significant impact on Asian sustainability. This volume provides policymakers, business leaders and experts with comprehensive and useful knowledge concerning future visions, initiatives and practical applications in promoting a sustainable resource-circulating society.

Development Financing and Economic Insecurity

Despite the rise in recent decades in the average income level, economic insecurity has also increased. This paradoxical outcome is true for both developing and developed countries. Increasing economic insecurity is harmful for human welfare for several reasons. Job and income insecurity directly affect the material and psychological well-being of people. Economic volatility and high uncertainty also tend to exert negative influence on productive investment, thereby hurting long-term development. In view of the above, it is not surprising that there is a growing need among both scholars and policymakers to have a better understanding about the rising problem of economic insecurity and the steps that may be taken to mitigate it. This book is an important step forward in meeting this need. Written by leading experts it sheds light on the causes of economic insecurity and how better functioning financial systems, more effective macroeconomic policies and extended micro-financing schemes could mitigate the degree of economic insecurity in developing countries and overcome many of its negative consequences.

Preliminary Overview of the Economies of Latin America and the Caribbean 2010

This publication reveals that although Latin America and Caribbean (LAC) economies are set to grow, subregional performance has been varied. The growth observed in 2010 is consolidating the recovery that the majority of the economies in the region began to experience in 2009. This growth had positive effects on employment and private consumption. However, diverse factors came together in 2010 to create a less optimistic situation for the international economy that together with diminished public spending efforts suggest a decreased dynamism in LAC in 2011. In effect, the external environment continues to affect the region's economies given the high levels of uncertainty in the advanced economies. At the same time, the relative strength of emerging economies has led to an increase in the inflow of capital to LAC. This situation has led to currency appreciation. The challenge is to increase investment through increased national savings in order to better defend the exchange rate parities and contribute to the creation of a standard that includes the requirements necessary to promote development in the region.

World Economic and Social Survey 2011: The Great Green Technological Transformation

Forthcoming

A massive technological revolution is required to meet the challenges of climate change and other environmental constraints to development. World Economic and Social Survey 2011 explains why this revolution will have to be fully realized in developing countries if they are to achieve food security and rural development, minimize the damage from natural hazards and extreme disasters partly induced by climate change, and transform their economies to beat destitution and create productive jobs. Avoiding the climate change tipping point will require fundamental shifts in existing technologies to transform manufacturing, agriculture, living arrangements and infrastructure and thereby reduce greenhouse gas emissions, make more efficient use of natural resources and derivatives, create less waste, preserve biodiversity and reduce social disparities. The Survey assesses options and policies to facilitate a new technological revolution, and the challenges societies face in making it consistent with the overarching objectives of sustainable development and poverty reduction.

The Promise of Protection: Social Protection and Development in Asia and the Pacific

The present report aims to contribute to the policy discourse on the direction and impact of social protection in Asia and the Pacific. While many countries of the region have some form of social protection in place, only a fraction of those who need assistance actually benefit from it. Still, these programmes can act as the building blocks for more comprehensive social protection systems which can meet the needs of so many more. It then promotes universal coverage as a way to most effectively and proactively impact on people’s lives, especially the most vulnerable groups in society. The report presents the political and economic case for social protection and the need to bring social protection into the mainstream of development policy formulation.

Report on the World Social Situation 2011: The Global Social Crisis

This report explores the social impact of recent global economic crises and warns of the possibility of continuing global social crisis in the face of increasing fiscal consolidation and austerity measures which threaten the sustainability of the ongoing recovery. The full impact of the financial and economic crisis on social progress is not immediately discernible. However, initial estimates show that the effects have been sharp, widespread and deep. Given the fragility of the economic recovery and uneven progress in major economies, social conditions are expected to recover slowly. Increased poverty, hunger and unemployment due to the crisis will continue to affect billions of people in many developed and developing countries for years to come. Austerity measures in response to high government debt in some advanced economies are not only threatening public sector employment and social expenditure, but are also making the recovery more uncertain and fragile.

It is possible that the negative economic and social consequences of the crisis on employment, poverty, health, education, gender equality and growth will be felt for some time. Better economic policies to promote good governance and institution building are urgently needed to create jobs and bring about the necessary change the region aspires to.

Agribusiness for Africa's Prosperity

A renewed focus on agriculture has been evident in policy and development agendas for the African continent, yet little knowledge has been generated on the interlinkages of production, agro-industry and markets, as well as the potentials and challenges for developing these. Agribusiness for Africa's Prosperity analyses the challenges, the potential and opportunities of African agribusiness in the current period of dramatic changes in global agro-industrial markets, and builds a case for agribusiness development as a path to Africa's prosperity. Written by international experts, from agribusiness practitioners, to academic experts and UN technical agencies, the book fills a significant gap in knowledge concerning these issues. It is an important resource for policymakers, agribusiness managers and researchers in agribusiness development. This publication contains an agenda for action, with a key focus on visions, policies and strategies for Africa's agribusiness development and the way forward towards converting plans into action.

The Impact of the Global Financial Crises on International Migration: Lessons Learned

The current global economic crisis is impacting migration patterns and processes around the world. A reduction in migration flows globally has been reported. Migrant workers are laid off, and while some return home, others stay. How to respond to these migration impacts poses challenges for policymakers in both countries of origin and destination. Against this background, this report considers the lessons for migration policy to be learned from the major financial crises of the 20th Century, namely the Great Depression (1930s), the Oil Crisis (1973), the Asian financial crisis (1997-99), the financial crisis in Russia (1998), and the Latin American financial crisis (1998-2002). As the impact of previous crises on migrants and migration has been uneven and unequal across countries and regions, depending on a range of factors, this report draws out the wider lessons for policy that can be learned from previous responses to economic crises.

World Migration Report 2010: The Future of Migration - Building Capacities for Change

This report focuses on the future of migration and the capacities that will be required by States, regional and international organizations, civil society and the private sector to manage migration successfully over the coming decades. Ten years ago there were 150 million migrants. Now, the number of migrants has grown to 214 million, and the figure could rise to 405 million by 2050, as a result of demographic disparities, environmental change, global political and economic dynamics, technological revolutions and social networks. In response, many countries will invest in developing their migration management capacities. Already, many of them require assistance to develop the capabilities to respond to new migration challenges. This report argues that it is essential for States to be able to develop the comprehensive knowledge and efficient, flexible institutions that they will need to promote and implement efficient policies for the movement of people, now and in the future.

Economic and Social Survey of Asia and the Pacific 2011

The economies of Asia and the Pacific recovered in 2010 from the global economic crises of 2008/09 but they face fresh challenges in 2011. These include the return of food and fuel crises, sluggish recovery in the advanced economies, and a deluge of short-term capital flows that in turn is leading to volatility in capital markets, the build-up of asset bubbles and appreciation of exchange rates. Furthermore, the recent earthquake and tsunami in Japan provides another stark reminder of the region’s vulnerability to natural disasters. Policymakers have to meet the challenge of rebalancing the region’s economies in favour of domestic and regional investment and consumption. Deepening regional economic cooperation is critical to sustain dynamism. Some of the areas needing policy attention are enhancement of connectivity between markets and peoples through improved transport linkages, regional institution-building, and progress towards a regional energy framework. The 2011 edition assesses current critical issues, policy challenges and risks and outlines a policy agenda for sustaining dynamism and inclusive development.

Men in Families and Family Policy in a Changing World

Despite an increasing worldwide focus on the role of men in families and burgeoning research documenting men’s contribution to gender equality, the importance of their engagement for work-family balance, and the numerous positive paternal contributions to children’s development, policy-makers have been slow to recognize the need for effective public policy that is supportive of men’s involvement in their families. This publication aims to promote the knowledge of trends affecting families and increase awareness of family issues. It aims to stimulate efforts to develop family-oriented policies focusing attention upon the rights and responsibilities of all family members. Promoting knowledge of the economic, social and demographic processes affecting families and their members is indispensable to design appropriate course of action to assist families. This publication addresses the issue of the evolving roles of men in families and the corresponding need to develop social policies supporting these new roles for the benefit of families.

Poor Poverty

This book offers a critical appraisal of the conventional measures and analysis of poverty as well as of poverty reduction policies. Despite greater efforts in reducing poverty since the early 1980s, poverty remains stubbornly high in many parts of the world. In this publication it is argued that the mainstream perspectives on poverty and deprivation have contributed to considerable distortion and misunderstanding and that is not unrelated to ineffectual policy prescriptions. In particular it questions the World Bank's "dollar-a-day" measure of poverty and exposes the inadequacies of Bretton Woods-inspired poverty reduction programmes.

World E-Parliament Report 2010

The findings presented in this publication are based on the results of the Global Survey of ICT in Parliaments between July and November 2009, to which 134 parliamentary assemblies responded. The rapid growth of information and communication technologies (ICT) is changing not only the economic, social and political landscape around the world, but also the environment within which parliaments operate and it affects how they are perceived by the citizenry. In both developed and developing countries, parliaments are exploring ways to use technology to strengthen democracy and encourage political participation. This report evaluates the progress accomplished by parliaments in their efforts to use modern technologies to strengthen their institutional role. It provides a methodology that can serve as a tool for parliaments to improve their performance.

Information Societies in Latin America and the Caribbean: Development of Technologies and Technologies for Development

The countries of Latin Amercian and the Caribbean have substantially progressed with largescale application of ICT to varied aspects of economic and social development: the installation of digital infrastructure, modernization of public administration, digitization of processes to enhance productivity and the quality of education and health care, and natural disaster management. The rapid evolution turned ICT into an indispensible tool for the development agenda. In the effort to use ICT efficiently for development, it is important to bear in mind that these technologies are not an end in themselves. Should ICT be the essential element in the approach applied by information societies to development, or should the different aspects of development rather guide the way this technological revolution is harnessed? This book is about "the development of ICT" and "ICT for development". It places these two approaches at the centre of the debate and highlights the need for complementarity between the two processes.

Economic Survey of Latin America and the Caribbean 2009-2010: The Distributive Impact of Public Policies

In 2009, the countries of Latin America and the Caribbean experienced the brunt of the global financial crisis on their levels of activity, so that the region experienced a decline of 1.9% of GDP. However, since the second half of the year, most countries in the region have begun a vigorous recovery that should strengthen in 2010 with a regional GDP expansion of approximately 5.2%. The factors behind a more positive performance are both external and internal in nature. Amongst the former, can be included the continued dynamism of some key Asian economies, whose sustained demand for products from this region has created important conditions for a recovery in exports, especially in the case of South America. Similarly, the recovery of the U.S. economy, though gradual, contributes to a better scenario for Mexico, Central America and, to the extent that raises the demand for tourism, possibly also for the Caribbean.

The Dark Side of Globalization

Seen by some as a desirable and irreversible engine of prosperity and progress, globalization is resisted by others as the soft underbelly of a corporate imperialism that plunders and profiteers in the global marketplace. Globalization has brought many benefits, including the reduction of poverty in several countries. But it also has a dark side: the unleashing of negative forces as a result of the compression of time and space made possible by modern technology. Examples include transnational flows of terrorism, drug and human trafficking, organized crime, money laundering, and global pandemics. How can governments, international organizations and civil society react? From arms trafficking to armed insurgencies and the upsurge of religious fundamentalism, this book examines the challenges that the dark forces of globalization pose to the international system and the responses they have triggered. The goal is to help maximize the beneficial consequences of globalization while muting its baleful effects.

Economic Insecurity and Development

A growing sense of increased economic insecurity has emerged worldwide. Though many parts of the world have seen increasing prosperity in recent decades, economic progress has been accompanied by highly volatile markets, rising inequality, greater job insecurity, and weakening or non-existent social protection. Day-to-day concerns about income security have been compounded by new global threats. Climate change and increasingly destructive natural disasters are affecting economic livelihoods of many, especially in the developing world. The global financial crisis revealed the potentially devastating risks of inadequately regulated markets. Until recently, these heightened economic risks have often been met with the response that the forces behind them are autonomous and irresistible, beyond our collective political control. This book argues that such complacency is the wrong response to increasing levels of economic insecurity. Instead, it calls for more active and integrated policy responses to help communities better manage these new risks, to mitigate their downside risks and ideally to prevent them ever becoming a serious threat in the first place.

Least Developed Countries Report 2010: Towards a New International Development Architecture for LDCs

This report calls for the creation of a new international development architecture (NIDA) for the least developed countries (LDCs) aimed at: a) reversing their marginalization in the global economy and helping them in their catch-up efforts; b) supporting a pattern of accelerated economic growth and diversification to improve the wellbeing of all their people; and c) helping them graduate from LCD status. The NIDA for LDCs would be constituted through reforms of the global economic regimes which directly affect development and poverty reduction in LDCs, and through the design of a new generation of special international support mechanisms for the LDCs aimed at addressing their specific structural constraints and vulnerabilities. Increasing South-South cooperation, both within regions and between LDCs and large, fast-growing developing countries, could play an important role in a NIDA for LCDs. The report proposes five major pillars of the NIDA: finance, trade, commodities, technology, and climate change mitigation and adaptation and identifies a forward-looking agenda for action.

The ADR also addresses the strategic positioning of UNDP. The evaluation relied on documents, interviews with approximately 200 individuals, including beneficiaries, Somali authorities, donors, civil society, representatives of international organizations and independent observers. The evaluation found that UNDP contribution to development results in Somalia has varied considerably depending on the region where activities were implemented. The report highlights several challenges and shortcomings in programme management. It concludes that, despite these challenges, UNDP Somalia continued to seize opportunities as they emerged through the peace process and enjoy a privileged relationship with the authorities and donors.

Performance-based Grant Systems: Concept and International Experience

Implementing the environmental, social, and economic policies necessary to achieve the Millennium Development Goals implies considerable financial resources. It also raises the complex question of how resources can be deployed to greatest effect. Too often resources come pre-labeled or pre-packaged. A ‘thematic’ problem is identified and measures are designed- and resources assigned- to deal with it. This can be the case for health, education, agriculture, sanitation or a wide range of single issues. This publication shares the experience of UNCDF and others in designing and implementing performancebased grants. The piloting of performance-based grant systems demonstrates how local catalytic capital can be deployed to bring about real improvements in local development and poverty reduction by encouraging local governments to improve their capacity and focus on results.

After six years of uninterrupted growth, the GDP of Latin America and the Caribbean was expected to fall by 1.8% and per capita GDP by close to 2.9% in 2009. The international crisis hit the region hard at the end of 2008 and in early 2009, taking a toll on all of its countries. However, a recovery began to take shape in the second quarter and became more widespread in the second half of the year. But the objective of regaining sustained growth poses fresh and complex challenges. The countries of the region now face the fundamental task of generating and expanding policy space. To do this, they must increase resources, create instruments and strengthen institutions, particularly those involved in coordination.

World Investment Report 2010: Investing in a Low-carbon Economy

The World Investment Report 2010 marks its 20th anniversary edition and draws attention to investing in a low-carbon economy. The report illustrates global and regional trends in Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) followed by recent policy developments. Global FDI witnessed a modest, but uneven recovery in the first half of 2010. This sparks some cautious optimism for FDI prospects in the short run and for a full recovery in the future. Developing and transitional economies attracted half of global FDI inflows, and invested one quarter of global FDI outflows. Overcoming barriers remains a key challenge to attract FDI for small, vulnerable and weak economies. The chapter on leveraging foreign investment for a low carbon economy describes characteristics and scope of low-carbon foreign investment; its drivers and determinants; strategies and policy options; and sums up with global partnership to further low-carbon investment for sustainable development.

Universal Declaration of Human Rights: Dignity and Justice for All of Us

The Universal Declaration of Human Rights is the first international agreement setting out freedoms, rights and entitlements for all humanity to claim. It emphasizes the inextricable relationship between fundamental freedoms and social justice, and their connection with peace and security. The General Assembly of the United Nations proclaims this Universal Declaration of Human Rights as a common standard of achievement for all peoples and all nations, to the end that every individual and every organ of society, keeping this Declaration constantly in mind, shall strive by teaching and education to promote respect for these rights and freedoms and by progressive measures, national and international, to secure their universal and effective recognition and observance, both among the peoples of Member States themselves and among the peoples of territories under their jurisdiction.

Global Study on Human Rights Institutions for Children

Independent Human Rights Institutions for Children, often established as ‘Ombuds for Children’, have gained considerable importance in implementing the Convention on the Rights of the Child, and as key contributors to policy processes for child rights. Ombuds for Children monitor the actions of governments and other actors that affect children; promote children’s rights; and facilitate dialogue between children and the State. Many countries established or are setting up such institutions. International networks exist to facilitate and support these efforts. These evolutions are supported by the Committee on the Rights of the Child, which monitors implementation of the Convention. This study examines independent institutions for children’s rights, with a view to informing decision-making. Drawing on regional overviews of the work of such institutions, the study analyses their distinctive value in the realization of children’s rights, highlights practical considerations for further establishment and consolidation and identifies conditions for their effective functioning.

Human Rights

Women are among the most competent, yet marginalized, unnoticed and underutilized actors in efforts to rebuild war-torn societies. Opportunities for sustainable peacebuilding are lost — and sustainable peace is at risk — when significant stakeholders in a society’s future peace and conflict architecture are excluded from efforts to heal the wounds of war and build a new society and state. The contributors to this book draw on comparative case and country studies from post-conflict contexts in different parts of world to offer their insights into frameworks for understanding women as both victims and peacebuilders, to trace the road they take from victimhood to empowerment and to highlight the essential partnerships between women and children and how they contribute to peace. The authors examine the roles of women in political and security institutions. They argue that, for women, “defying victimhood” means being a full participant in post-war social, economic, political and security structures.

Civil Society, Conflicts and the Politicization of Human Rights

This is a book about how violence is generated, managed, exploited, but also eradicated in ethno-political conflicts, and how a society can end conflict and transition towards peace. It focuses on the nongovernmental component in ethno-political conflicts. Civil society actors, or “conflict society organizations” (CoSOs), are increasingly central in view of the complexity of contemporary ethno-political conflicts. CoSOs are key players in ethno-political conflicts, both as violators and as promoters of human rights. Nevertheless, the precise relationships underpinning the human rights-civil society-conflict nexus have not been fully examined. This volume analyses the impact of civil society on ethno-political conflicts through their human rights-related activities, and identifies the means to strengthen the complementarity between civil society and international governmental actors in promoting peace. These aims are addressed in case studies on Bosnia-Herzegovina, Cyprus, Turkey’s Kurdish question, and Israel–Palestine.

Protection of Children from Violence, Sexual Abuse and Exploitation in the Online and Offline Environment

The spread and use of the Internet and related technologies has increased exponentially in all parts of the world. This has largely been seen as beneficial for children for educational, informational, social and entertainment purposes. However, the Internet can also pose risks for children’s safety, personal development and well-being, and has led to them being bullied, sexually abused and exploited in both online and offline settings. In close collaboration with the Child Exploitation and Online Protection Centre in the United Kingdom, UNICEF initiated a project to link the evidence of children’s attitudes and online/offline behaviour, including the risks they face, to prevention and response systems that include legal frameworks, law enforcement and mechanisms to support the recovery of affected children. The study identifies gaps, key lessons and critical dimensions required, based on empirical evidence, to support the development of recommendations for policymakers and programmers on strengthening preventive and protective measures.

Political Violence in South and Southeast Asia: Critical Perspectives

18

This volume explores the sources and manifestations of political violence in South and Southeast Asia and the myriad roles that it plays in everyday life and as part of historical narrative. It considers and critiques the manner in which political violence is understood and constructed, and the common assumptions that prevail regarding the causes, victims and perpetrators of this violence. By focusing on the social and political context of these regions the volume presents a critical understanding of the nature of political violence and provides an alternative narrative to that found in mainstream analysis of ‘terrorism’. Political Violence in South and Southeast Asia brings together political scientists and anthropologists with intimate knowledge of the politics and society of these regions, from different academic backgrounds, who present unique perspectives on topics including assassinations, riots, state violence, the significance of geographic borders, external influences and intervention, and patterns of recruitment and rebellion.

The GHS addresses classification of chemicals by types of hazard and proposes harmonized hazard communication elements, including labels and safety data sheets. It aims at ensuring that information on physical hazards and toxicity from chemicals be available to enhance the protection of human health and the environment during the handling, transport and use of these chemicals. It provides a basis for harmonization of rules and regulations on chemicals at national, regional and worldwide level. This fourth revised edition contains new or revised provisions concerning, inter alia, new hazard categories for chemically unstable gases and non-flammable aerosols.

Blood and Borders: The Responsibility to Protect and the Problem of the Kin State

Map lines delineating statehood can become blurred by bloodlines of nationhood. Inter-ethnic conflict and genocide have demonstrated the dangers of failing to protect people targeted by fellow citizens. When minority groups in one country are targeted for killings or ethnic cleansing based on their group identity, whose responsibility is it to protect them? In particular, are they owed any protective responsibility by their kin state? How can cross-border kinship ties strengthen greater pan-national identity across borders without challenging territorially defined national security? As shown by the Russia–Georgia conflict over South Ossetia, unilateral intervention by a kin state can lead to conflict within and between states. The world cannot stand by when minority rights are being trampled, but the protection of national minorities should not be used as an excuse to violate state sovereignty and generate inter-state conflict. This book suggests that a sensible answer to the kin state dilemma might come from the formula “neither intervention nor indifference” that recognizes the special bonds but proscribes armed intervention based on the ties of kinship.

Trade and Development Report 2011

What lessons have policy makers drawn from the global financial and economic crisis for reforming the international monetary and financial system and the design of macroeconomic policies? The enthusiasm about system reform and a reorientation of macroeconomic policies has not lasted. Reforms of financial regulation are progressing slowly and only at the national level, monetary system reform is limited. After an interlude that some considered as a return to Keynesianism, the orientation of macroeconomic policy, especially fiscal policy, is back to business as usual. This will hinder a sustained recovery of the world economy and open the door for new financial crises. Thus, rethinking policies and reshaping the financial and monetary system remain an urgent task. The report makes concrete proposals on how, and in which areas, to advance with the strengthening regulation of the financial sector and commodity markets, reform of the international monetary system, and the reorientation of fiscal policy.

It reflects on what was learnt and on the policy agenda necessary for supporting such countries. Contributions fall into three categories: 1) general issues on the causes of the crisis and its transmission to the developing world; 2) country and regional case studies, and 3) policy recommendations. The first finding is that there is widespread awareness of a growing wedge between financial-sector growth and the real economy in many countries, which calls for a profound rethinking of approaches to financial liberalization. Secondly, in the same way as the roles of business and the State need to be rebalanced at the national level, economic globalization requires enhanced global governance. Thirdly, The macroeconomic strategies of developing countries may need redirecting towards greater emphasis on employment creation and active domestic demand management.

This publication brings together research outputs delivered under the common theme “Regional trade agreements and international production networks” of the Asia-Pacific Research and Training Network on Trade research programme. It reveals that based on the perception of the respondents in five selected countries in Asia, formal trade agreements were not considered a major driving force in strengthening international production networks (IPN). Instead, the strengthening of an IPN relies on market initiatives. In addition, the exclusion of specific industries from trade agreements resulted in the industry involved not receiving the benefits from efforts dedicated to regional liberalization. Another factor that contributes to the perception that regional trade agreements do not greatly affect the strengthening of IPNs is a firm’s scale of operations. This study relies on primary data and information collected through interviews and focus group discussions. It takes into account both primary data and statistical data from secondary sources.

Review of Maritime Transport 2010

More than 80% of international trade in goods is carried by sea, and an even higher percentage of developing-country trade is carried in ships. The Review of Maritime Transport, an annual publication prepared by the Division on Technology and Logistics - UNCTAD secretariat, is an important source of information on this vital sector. It closely monitors developments affecting world seaborne trade, freight rates, ports, surface transport, and logistics services, as well as trends in ship ownership and control and fleet age, tonnage supply, and productivity. The Review contains a chapter on legal and regulatory developments and each year includes a chapter highlighting a different region. In 2010, the focus is on Asia and the Pacific.

Market Access, Transparency and Fairness in Global Trade: Export Impact for Good 2010

This new International Trade Centre report on market access, transparency and fairness in global trade concludes that ‘market access begins at home’. It argues that further reducing barriers to trade between developing countries needs to be an essential part of the way forward. The report is the first of an annual series on market access issues and focuses on reducing global poverty by improving market entry and trade transparency for developing countries. In this report, ITC has applied a new methodology offering more accurate estimates of global poverty distribution and the impact of export growth on poverty.

Foreign Direct Investment in Latin America and the Caribbean 2009

Due to the global crisis, in 2009 FDI flows to the region shrunk by 42% with regard to the historical record set in 2008. This decrease is explained by a combination of factors: a fall in world production, prevailing uncertainty and the deceleration of growth in several countries of the region, which discouraged FDI in search of local markets. In addition, falling commodity prices in late 2008 warded off investment in the exploitation of these resources, while the recession in North America restrained investment in export platforms. The report notes that most announced FDI in manufacturing continues concentrated in low and medium-low technology intensive activities, while FDI in high-tech sectors and research and development projects is still scarce. This reveals that two decades after FDI flows were liberalized, the region still has difficulties attracting hightechnology investment and participating in high value-added links in global production chains. The report suggests policies for productive development focused on innovation and strengthening local capabilities.

Investment Policy Review: El Salvador

El Salvador made a firm strategic choice to develop as an open market economy decades ago, and it has long adopted an open attitude towards FDI. A large number of reforms have been implemented in the past decades that reflect this choice: regional economic integration has been fostered and crucial free trade agreements have been concluded, the US dollar was adopted as legal tender, competition rules have been enforced and key segments of the economy have been privatized. This strategy has allowed El Salvador to gain macroeconomic stability and attract beneficial FDI inflows. Much progress remains to be achieved, however, to eradicate poverty and reduce income inequality. In addition, El Salvador needs to improve the general level of competitiveness of its domestic firms in order to reap the full benefits of openness to global trade and investment flows. The review offers concrete recommendations in order to allow El Salvador to promote FDI in support of global competitiveness and to generate higher levels of beneficial foreign investment.

Latin America and Asia-Pacific Trade and Investment Relations at a Time of International Financial Crisis

The global economic crisis has put an end to a period of worldwide expansion and halted the integration of Latin America and developing Asia with the international economy. Current and expected economic weaknesses in the advanced economies has led us to look elsewhere for sources of growth. Emerging economies in Asia and Latin America have increased their contributions to world production, finance, and trade in the past decades. In doing so, the two regions have deepened their economic ties with significant implications for the recovery of their respective economies. This paper discusses the impact of the crisis on the commercial patterns inside and outside the Forum for East Asia Latin American Cooperation bloc.

Trade and Development Report 2010: Employment, Globalization and Development

The Trade and Development Report 2010 focuses on the need to make employment creation a priority in economic policy. Unemployment is the most pressing social and economic problem of our time, not least because, especially in developing countries, it is closely related to poverty. The fallout from the global crisis has exacerbated what were already sluggish labour markets in most countries even before the crisis erupted. It also warns that a premature withdrawal of macroeconomic stimulus measures to expand demand in developed countries may trigger a deflationary spiral in the global economy, with attendant slumps in growth and employment. The publication draws attention to the importance of strengthening the macroeconomic policy framework to promote sustainable growth and employment creation in both developed and developing countries, and makes recommendations for a reorientation of macroeconomic policies and institution building aimed at strengthening domestic demand.

Sierra Leone has important investment opportunities and growth potential in various sectors of the economy. The country continues however to bear the impact of the civil war 2002, including in terms of weak economic performance, human capital shortages, deficient infrastructure network and poor image. The investment policy review (IPR) takes note of the open and favourable FDI regulatory regime and of the guarantee against expropriation. It stresses though that the government policy should target the negotiations of a more comprehensive bilateral investment treaty and double taxation treaty network to boost the country’s FDI attractiveness. At the request of the Government of Sierra Leone, the report outlines the elements of a strategy to stimulate investment while urging the international community to continue supporting the peace and economic reform processes in Sierra Leone.

Health care migration is a large and global business. Recruitment is decentralized, involves both public and private sector entrepreneurs, and is difficult to regulate. The countries of the Western Hemisphere are important players in the global health market. In the major migrant receiving Western Hemisphere countries, the US and Canada, the concern is that domestically educated nurses will not be sufficient to meet growing demands. The recruitment of immigrant professionals in nursing fields helps fill existing gaps. This publications outlines a range of issues related to health care workers from the Western Hemisphere, their patterns of movement, their roles in the work force primarily in the US and Canada, and the impacts of health care migration on source and receiving countries. The study tracks the largest segment of migrating health care workers: nurses and long term/direct care providers who perform nursing functions. It covers training, migration requirements, and ethical issues raised with the flight of qualified health care givers and looks at efforts, especially in the Caribbean region to manage that flight.

The Migration of Health Care Workers in the Western Hemisphere: Issues and Impacts

State of the World Population Report 2010

In the year 2000 the United Nations Security Council passed Resolution 1325, recognizing the vulnerability of women and girls to violence during and after armed conflict, and the absence or low level of women’s representation in efforts to prevent war, build peace and restore devastated societies. The resolution sought formally, for the first time in the Security Council, to end this neglect and actively to promote and draw on the untapped potential of women everywhere on issues of peace and security. The report highlights how women in conflict and post-conflict situations—as well as in emergencies or protracted crises—are faring a decade later. It is constructed around interviews and reporting in Bosnia and Herzegovina, Haiti, Jordan, Liberia, the occupied Palestinian territory (West Bank), Timor-Leste and Uganda. These diverse nations recently emerged from conflict and are rebuilding with limited resources. Some have experienced profound social changes as a result of war and displacement.

The Dynamics of Social Change Towards the Abandonment of Female Genital Mutilation/Cutting in five African Countries

This publication examines the social dynamics of the abandonment of female genital mutilation/cutting (FGM/C) in five countries - Egypt, Ethiopia, Kenya, Senegal and the Sudan - and seeks to inform policies and programmes aimed at ending the practice. The experiences from those five countries provide evidence that the abandonment of FGM/C is possible when programmes and policies address the complex social dynamics associated with the practice and challenge established gender relationships and existing assumptions and stereotypes. This publication concludes with reflections on the remaining challenges of FGM/C abandonment and offers recommendations for future research and programme interventions.

A Century of International Drug Control

The international drug control system is one of the oldest consensus-based multilateral systems in existence. While the use of psychoactive substances itself extends back many centuries, today’s international drug control system is rooted in efforts made a century ago to address the largest substance abuse problem the world has ever faced: the Chinese opium epidemic. The present volume is not a diplomatic history, it aims only to present the basic development of the modern drug control system: why and how it arose, how it impacted drug production and consumption and its legacy for present and future international drug control efforts.

The Children Left Behind: A League Table of Inequality in Child Well-being in the World’s Rich Countries

This report presents a first overview of inequalities in child well-being for 24 OECD countries. It focuses on the relative gap between children in the bottom of the distribution with those occupying the median. Three dimensions of well-being are examined: material, education, and health. In each case, the question asked is ‘how far behind are children being allowed to fall?’ and 'why are some countries doing so much better at protecting their most vulnerable children than others'.

State of the World's Volunteerism Report

In most societies, millions of people through voluntary action make significant contributions to economic and social development. The first State of World’s Volunteerism Report (SWVR) supports a better understanding of volunteerism by exhibiting its universality, scope and reach, and new trends in volunteerism in the 21st Century. It examines the important contributions in diverse fields such as enhanced livelihoods, social inclusion, social cohesion, disaster risk reduction, governance and political participation. SWVR also provides an alternative vision towards a better society. This publication is expected to lead to enhanced recognition, facilitation, networking and promotion of volunteerism worldwide and to an increased recognition of UNV’s critical role in peace and development as well as in norm-setting in the UN system. It is anticipated that SWVR and successor reports will result in a paradigm shift in the way that volunteerism is perceived, discussed, researched and practiced in the future.

The League of Nations: From Collective Security to Global Rearmament

In the wake of the First World War, at the Peace Conference at Versailles, US President Wilson called for the creation of a League of Nations for the purpose of affording mutual guarantees of political independence and territorial integrity to great and small nations alike. For the first time in history, small countries had the possibility of playing a role in and having an influence over international relations. For the first time, conflicts between nations were a matter of global concern. Numerous key areas—social, economic and statistics, health, labour—were dealt with either directly by the League or indirectly by its specialized agencies. The League’s lifetime (1919-1947) saw the creation of bodies that would be at the origin of the ILO, UNESCO, WHO and UNHCR. Their achievements were manifold and though some of them were “revived” as United Nations offices or specialized agencies after the Second World War, they were inherited from the League of Nations.

The United Nations Rule of Law Indicators: Implementation Guide and Project Tools

Building and strengthening the “rule of law” in developing nations, countries in transition or emerging from armed conflict, is a central focus of UN work. As a result, there is growing demand to better understand the delivery of justice in conflict and post-conflict situations and the impact of developments in this area. The United Nations Department of Peacekeeping Operations and the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights, in cooperation with other UN departments, agencies, funds and programmes, have developed an instrument to monitor changes in the performance and fundamental characteristics of criminal justice institutions in conflict and post-conflict situations, the UN Rule of Law Indicators. This Guide describes how to implement this instrument and measure these indicators. It provides step-by-step instructions on how to implement the instrument in a conflict or post-conflict setting. It is meant for first-time users as well as those with previous experience.

Keeping Watch: Monitoring Technology and Innovation in UN Peace Operations

Knowledge is power. In the hands of the UN peacekeepers it can be a power for peace. Lacking knowledge, peacekeepers often find themselves powerless in the field. The United Nations aims to use all available tools to make its monitoring and surveillance work more effective. Keeping Watch explains how technologies can increase the range, effectiveness and accuracy of UN observation. Satellites, aircraft and ground sensors enable wider coverage while decreasing intrusiveness. These devices can transmit and record imagery for dissemination, further analysis, and as evidence in human rights cases. They also allow observation at a safe distance from dangerous areas. This book identifies potential problems and pitfalls with modern technologies and the challenges to incorporate them into the UN system. Creative recommendations are offered to overcome institutional inertia and widespread misunderstandings about how technology can complement human initiative in the quest for peace in war-torn lands.

Basic Facts about the United Nations

A compact yet comprehensive handbook designed for the general public, Basic Facts about the United Nations sets forth the structure of the United Nations, how it works and the main issues it deals with in their importance for people everywhere. Along with explaining the role played by its principal organs and the family of UN organizations, individual chapters explore UN contributions to international peace and security; economic and social development; human rights; humanitarian action; international law; and decolonization. A series of appendices documents UN membership, peacekeeping operations, budget, and contact information for UN information centres, services and offices. This new edition of the work has been substantially revised to take account of many significant developments that have taken place in the world and in the United Nations itself since the last edition of the book (previously titled The UN Today) in 2008.

Haiti may well be the only country in the Americas with a last name. References to the land of the “black Jacobins” are almost always followed by the phrase “the poorest country in the Western Hemisphere”. To that dubious distinction, on 12 January 2010 Haiti added another, when it was hit by the most devastating natural disaster in the Americas, a 7.0 Richter scale earthquake. More than 220,000 people lost their lives and much of its vibrant capital, Port-au-Prince, was reduced to rubble. Since 2004, the United Nations has been in Haiti through MINUSTAH, in an ambitious attempt to help Haiti raise itself by its bootstraps. This effort has now acquired additional urgency. Is Haiti a failed state? Does it deserve a Marshall-plan-like programme? What will it take to address the Haitian predicament? In this book, some of the world’s leading experts on Haiti examine the challenges faced by the first black republic, the tasks undertaken by the UN, and the new role of hemispheric players like Argentina, Brazil and Chile, as well as that of Canada, France and the United States.
