Autumn Winter 2013 2014 2013 Since the first-ever UN General Assembly High-level Dialogue on International Migration and Development (HLD) in 2006, the international debate about how best to harness the benefits of migration for development has intensified significantly. Yet migration remains inadequately integrated into development frameworks at national and local levels, and public perceptions of migrants and migration are often very negative. In 2013, a second High Level Dialogue on International Migration and Development will be held, presenting the international community with a critical opportunity to focus its attention on how to make migration work for development and poverty reduction. The HLD takes place at an important time, as the international community is seeking to formulate a new agenda for global development as we approach the target year of the Millennium Development Goals in 2015.

The first three chapters of the World Migration Report 2013 provide an introduction to the chosen theme ‘Migrant Well-being and Development’, present the current global migration situation across four migration pathways and review existing research on the emerging field of happiness and subjective well-being. Chapter four presents original findings on migrant well-being from the Gallup World Poll, looking at outcomes on six core dimensions of wellbeing across the four migration pathways. The final part draws conclusions and makes recommendations for future initiatives to monitor migrant well-being and the impact of migration on development, with reference to the inclusion of migration in the post-2015 global development framework.

International Organization for Migration (IOM)

The World Migration Report 2013 contributes to the global debate on migration and development in three ways: First, the focus of the report is on the migrant, and on how migration affects a person’s well-being. Many reports on migration and development focus on the impact of remittances: the money that migrants send back home. This report takes a different approach, exploring how migration affects a person’s quality of life and their human development across a broad range of dimensions. Second, the report draws upon the findings of a unique source of data – the Gallup World Poll surveys, conducted in more than 150 countries, to assess the well-being of migrants worldwide for the first time. Third, the report sheds new light on how migrants rate their lives, whether they live in a highincome country in the North, or a low or middle income country in the South. Traditionally the focus has been on those migrating from lower income countries to more affluent ones; this report considers movements in all four migration pathways and their implications for development i.e. migration from the South to North, between countries of the South or between countries of the North, as well as movements from the North to the South.

Global Environment Outlook 5 (GEO-5): Environment for the Future We Want

UNEP Year Book 2013: Emerging Issues in Our Global Environment

The Global Environment Outlook (GEO) is a major publication for all those who are interested in environmental issues. It has brought together thousands of scientists and hundreds of collaborating centres. Using the integrated environmental assessment (IEA) methodology, the United Nations Environment Programme has produced five GEO reports thus far, which have analyzed environmental state and trends at the global and regional scales, described plausible outlooks for various time frames and formulated policy options. Each GEO report builds on the assessment findings of its predecessor reports and draws upon lessons learnt.

This series examines emerging environmental issues and policy-relevant events and developments. It also presents the latest trends using key environmental indicators. This 2013 edition shows that changes in the Arctic will have consequences far beyond this fragile region and that they require an urgent international response. The volume of chemicals in the world continues to grow, with a shift in production from developed to developing countries. To meet the goal of producing and using chemicals in ways that minimize significant impacts on health and the environment by 2020, efforts must be made to reduce the use of toxic chemicals, promote safer alternatives and build capacity for sound chemicals management. Adequate information for minimizing chemical risks is essential to support these efforts.

The Role of Ecosystems in Disaster Risk Reduction The increasing worldwide trend in disasters, aggravated by global environmental change, urges us to implement new approaches to hazard mitigation, as well as exposure and vulnerability reduction. Ecosystem management is a well-tested solution to sustainable development that is being revisited because of its inherent “win–win” and “no-regrets” appeal to address rising disaster and climate change issues. It is one of the few approaches that can impact all elements of the disaster risk equation – mitigating hazards, reducing exposure, reducing vulnerabilities and increasing the resilience of exposed communities. Yet, the uptake of ecosystembased approaches for disaster risk reduction (DRR) is slow despite good examples of success stories. Reasons for this are explained in this publication.

Autumn Winter 2013 2014

The publication reports on a project carried out by the United Nations Economic and Social Commission for Asia and the Pacific (ESCAP) in partnership with the Asian Institute of Technology on the subject of building codes in the Asia-Pacific region. It presents the conclusions of an analysis on the current status of integration of environmental sustainability and disaster resilience in building codes. The report also summarizes the findings of documenting six good practices for enforcing greener and more resilient buildings. It concludes with recommendations on the subject.

This is the third biennial report coordinated by the United Nations Office for Disaster Risk Reduction (UNISDR). The report explores why increasing disaster risks represent a growing problem for the economic and business community on different scales. It examines how paradoxically business investments that aimed to strengthen competitiveness and productivity may have inadvertently contributed to increasing risks. This report seeks to engage businesses in a dialogue on disaster risk management that goes beyond the current emphasis on response and preparedness and instead identifies opportunities for the creation of shared value for business and society.

Inventory of Shared Water Resources in Western Asia United Nations

United Nations

Recent years have been marked by many catastrophic events both natural and manmade. Close interconnections mean that the impact of these crises has been felt throughout the world. Although many tools have been developed to manage risks successfully, there can be no doubt that many of the losses we have recently witnessed could have been prevented, or minimized, in the context of an effective and well-balanced regulatory system. The goal of this publication is to provide insights and recommendations for policymakers on designing regulatory systems that result in an eďŹƒcient, effective and transparent management of risks. This is a practical book. It introduces a holistic model of a regulatory system, function by function and with real-life examples, which is based on the objective of managing risks effectively.

This publication is the first UN-led effort to make a comprehensive assessment of the state of transboundary surface and groundwater resources in the Middle East. It follows a standardized structure, with eight surface water chapters and 19 groundwater chapters that systematically address hydrology, hydrogeology, water resources development and use, international water agreements and transboundary water management efforts. The chapters cover all rivers and groundwater resources shared between Arab countries in the Middle East and include data on water resources that are shared with Iran, Israel and Turkey. Boasting over 50 new maps and 200 figures, tables and boxes with recent, comprehensive data series, the Inventory provides an up-to-date view of the state and evolution of shared water resources in the region.

Measuring Vulnerability to Natural Hazards: Towards Disaster Resilient Societies (Second Edition) United Nations University

This publication is a completely revised, second edition of the popular book of the same title. Aside from being fully updated, this new edition includes the dimension of adaptation to climate change and new risks resulting from climate change. The text provides and combines practical examples from Africa, Asia, the Americas and Europe with theoretical and conceptual frameworks. It is key reading for all those interested in improving risk reduction and adaptation strategies to extreme events and gradual changes in the context of climate change and natural hazards. Measuring vulnerability and evaluating adaptation are essential prerequisites to strengthening the capacities of communities in building resilience through knowledgebased approaches.

This publication examines the difficult international economic situation and the outlook for the rest of the decade. It takes stock of the boom in commodity prices and its evolving impact on the value of the region’s exports, drawing particular attention to the growing role of developing Asia, especially China, as a destination for commodity exports from Latin America and the Caribbean. This publication looks at recent performance and the short-term outlook for trade and economic integration in the region. It analyses foreign trade trends in Latin America and the Caribbean in 2011 and 2012 by main trading partner and category of product for the region overall and for its subregions.

Half a decade since the onset of the Great Recession, the Asia-Pacific region continues to anchor the global economy, but its rate of economic growth remains subdued compared to the pre-global financial crisis period. It is also showing signs of strain, as uncertainty and crisis deepen in the United States and the euro zone. More importantly, the Asia-Pacific region’s growth path continues to leave behind hundreds of millions and to put unsustainable pressure on the natural resource base. The 2013 edition of the Economic and Social Survey of Asia and the Pacific argues that macroeconomic policies can play a key role not only in supporting the economies of the region in the short term, but also in reorienting the region towards a more inclusive and sustainable pattern of development. By carefully designing short-term support measures, it is possible to sustain growth as well as address long-term structural issues.

United Nations Development Programme

As an illustrative example, the Survey 2013 estimates, for a number of Asia-Pacific countries, the public investment needs required to deliver a package of policies to sustain growth and to promote inclusive and sustainable development. The policy package comprises a job guarantee programme, a universal pension scheme, disability benefits, increased public health spending, universal school enrolment and universal access to modern energy.

This report identifies developing countries that have done better than expected in human development terms. It analyses the causes and consequences of these achievements and the challenges they face. Each of these countries has its own unique history. Yet they share important characteristics and face similar challenges. They are increasingly interconnected and interdependent and their peoples are demanding to be heard, as they share ideas through new communications channels and seek greater accountability from governments and international institutions. The report identifies policies that could promote greater progress. With fresh analytical insights and clear proposals for policy reforms, the report helps chart a course for people in all regions to face shared human development challenges.

The Survey finds that most countries can finance such a package without jeopardizing macroeconomic stability, although least developed countries would also require global partnership and development cooperation. The analysis underlines the need to move forward the regional development agenda from a discussion on the future we want to the means of implementation to realize that future.

“At the (…) Rio+20 United Nations Conference on Sustainable Development in 2012, world leaders pledged to adopt forward-looking macroeconomic policies that promote sustainable development and lead to sustained, inclusive and equitable economic growth (…) The Economic and Social Survey of Asia and the Pacific 2013 makes it clear that such investments are not only essential but also affordable.” BAN Ki-moon Secretary-General of the United Nations

United Nations

The 2012 edition of the Preliminary Overview of the Economies of Latin America and the Caribbean analyzes the impact of the global economic crisis in the region. In general terms, the region’s economy proved resilient, despite the global economic downturn. The monetary policy was slightly expansionary during 2012, the fiscal position deteriorated in most of the countries, but fiscal policies remained predominantly prudent, employment and wages rose, with unemployment falling more among women than among men. The economic outlook for Latin America and the Caribbean depends heavily on how the global economy will evolve in 2013.

World Youth Report: Youth Employment - Youth Perspectives on the Pursuit of Decent Work in Changing Times United Nations

United Nations

Africa’s growth plummeted during its ‘lost decades’ of the 1980s and 1990s while unemployment soared, and production and export bases became more concentrated. Africa boasts significant human and natural resources that can be used to promote industrialization and structural economic transformation through value-addition strategies in all sectors. This publication examines key constraints and opportunities for African countries to make the most of their commodities by adding value through linkage development. It also addresses how African countries can design and implement policies to promote value addition and economic transformation, and reduce their dependence on producing and exporting unprocessed commodities.

To cast new light on social inequality, the latest edition of Social Panorama of Latin America is devoted mainly to aspects of caregiving on which systematized information for the region has not been available hitherto: paid employment in care-related activities, household expenditure on care, and the situation and care needs of persons with disabilities. This edition aims, in fact, to generate knowledge on a link in the chain of social reproduction which has long been sidestepped by public policy, since the issue made little inroads into the discussion or the policy agendas of the countries of Latin America and the Caribbean until a few years ago.

This is a biennially recurring publication of the United Nations. This edition is largely based on an e-discussion with young people and representatives of youth-led organizations on the transition from schools and training institutions into the world of work. It shares the participants’ views, experiences and recommendations on preparing for, entering, and remaining active in the labour force. Young people are crucial stakeholders in the pursuit of decent and productive work for all, often pioneers in their respective fields, yet, too frequently, their voices go unheard particularly with decision-makers. This report brings young people’s voices into the forefront where youth issues are discussed and acted upon.

Building Resilience to Natural Disasters and Major Economic Crises

This report presents the yearly assessment of global progress towards the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs), determining the areas where progress has been made, and those that are lagging behind. It pinpoints the areas where accelerated efforts are needed to meet the MDGs by 2015. The report is based on a master set of data compiled by the Inter-Agency and Expert Group on MDG indicators led by the Statistics Division of the Department of Economic and Social Affairs of the United Nations.

The Asia-Pacific region faces multiple crises such as slowdown in developed economies, reduced demand for regional exports, higher costs of capital, and the volatility of commodity markets. This book highlights the increasing trend of natural disasters affecting the region through disruptions to production and supply chains of goods and services as economies of the region become more integrated, and examines the links between the impact of natural disasters and economic shocks. It pays particular attention to policy options that protect and empower the poor and vulnerable, prevent them from falling deeper into poverty and empower them to withstand all forms of crises. It reviews and analyzes how to enhance regional cooperation to protect development gains, including progress towards achieving the Millennium Development Goals.

African trade posed by non-implementation of regional trade agreements and provides new insights into how to enhance implementation of existing regional agreements. The report argues that for African countries to reap expected gains from intra-African trade and regional integration, they will need to place the building of productive capacities and domestic entrepreneurship at the heart of the policy agenda for boosting intra-African trade. In this context, the report recommends that African Governments should promote intra-African trade in the context of developmental regionalism. In particular, it stresses the need for a shift from a linear and processbased approach to integration, which focuses on elimination of trade barriers, to a more development-based approach to integration, which pays as much attention to the building of productive capacities and private sector development as to the elimination of trade barriers.

International Cooperation for Sustainable Development United Nations

United Nations

This report argues that for African countries to reap developmental gains from intra-African trade and regional integration, they need to place the building of productive capacities and domestic entrepreneurship at the heart of the policy agenda for boosting intra-regional trade. It also analyzes the range of strategies and complementary policies that will be needed, besides trade policies, to ensure that regional integration enhances African enterprise development and economic development in general. It explores, among others, the role of national and regional industrial policy and the scope for developing regional development corridors. Lessons are drawn from other developmental regional experiences.

The report reviews trends in international development cooperation, including commitments and quality and impact of development assistance. It analyses a broad range of issues that affect the effectiveness of development cooperation. Building on the DCF’s work, special emphasis was placed on mutual accountability on development cooperation as well as South-South and triangular cooperation. The report also examines the implications of putting sustainable development at the heart of a post 2015 UN development for the future of development cooperation. This second independent International Development Cooperation Report draws upon analysis produced in connection with the 2012 biennial Development Cooperation Forum. Like the Forum itself, the report pays particular attention to the views of various stakeholders.

Despite the rise in recent decades in the average income level, economic insecurity has also increased. True for both developing and developed countries, this 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. This book 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.

Arab Human Development Report 2012, Tenth Edition: Empowerment - The Will of the People


Livelihoods and Economic Recovery in Crisis Situations

This book assesses feasible financing strategies for policymakers to follow in pursuance of human development, taking as reference the United Nations’ Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) and their achievement by 2015. These strategies are analyzed in the context of broader concerns of economic development with special reference to nine countries from Africa, Asia and the Middle East; that is, how to make macroeconomic policies support more effectively sustained growth while reducing widespread poverty and inequalities and other human development gaps in low- and middle-income countries, especially in times of global economic crises or external shocks. In this sense, this book adds new evidence regarding the social deficits in these countries and suggests policy options to overcome them.

Disasters and violent conflicts claim lives, destroy livelihoods and undermine development. They heighten social and economic insecurity and endanger those already vulnerable. This publication focuses on the restoration of economic strength in the aftermath of a conflict or disaster with a view to foster long-term peace and stability, create resilience and set in motion an equitable and sustainable process of development. The UN approach to early stabilization and inclusive growth embraces nationally-owned, crisis and gender-sensitive interventions that are aligned with security, recovery, conflict prevention and development programming. This publication highlights what is done to help sustain livelihoods and revitalise economies in crisis and conflict-affected countries.

National Transfer Accounts (NTA) provides a coherent accounting framework of economic flows from one age group or generation to another, typically for a national population in a given calendar year. This manual presents and consolidates concepts in a systematic fashion, together with methods and estimation procedures that measure these flows of resources across age. NTA estimates are useful to understand and analyse inter-generational economic flows, and the implications of changing population age structures for the fiscal sustainability of social programmes, the accumulation of physical and human capital, macroeconomic growth, and familial support for children, youth and older persons.

This publication assesses the most recent economic and social developments in Arab countries, using the data that became available by the 2nd quarter of 2013. The immediate policy challenge for most of Arab countries is to create employment without relying on an expansionary fiscal and monetary policy mix. The survey finds that several policy options are available for this policy challenge even in this highly uncertain situation surrounding the region’s socioeconomic development. In parallel to the specific policy proposals, the survey emphasizes the importance of policy dialogue in the area of employment and more constructive regional integration framework on this subject.

The currenrt global financial and economic crisis has highlighted and reinforced the need for effective social protection mechanisms that prevent households from falling into poverty while also being sustainable, thus helping families to improve their earnings permanently. Meanwhile, social protection policies must be consistent with labour market mechanisms and with employment policy in order for either or both to be as beneficial as possible. This volume, using a broad definition of social protection, takes an indepth look at selected programmes and their interaction with employment generation and growth in India, Kenya, Malawi, Mexico, Peru and Tajikistan. It explores how social and economic policies can be better integrated to simultaneously advance social welfare, employment outcomes and inclusive growth.

UN estimates show that Least Developed Countries (LDCs) population will grow rapidly to 1,500 million by 2040 from today’s 880 million, and the labour force will almost double. Approximately 130 million people in LDCs will be entering the labour force until 2020, which makes creating employment opportunities a real challenge. The report aims to raise awareness and galvanize the attention of policy makers to the magnitude of the problem. It also reviews and analyses recent labour market performance of the LDCs, compares it with the future needs in relation to job creation, and elaborates concrete policy recommendations for growth with employment.

Report of the World Social Situation 2013: Inequality Matters

The world is in the midst of profound social and economic change driven by the dynamic emerging powers of the developing world. The 2013 Human Development Report, “The Rise of the South: Human Progress in a Diverse World” analyzes this phenomenon in detail, examining the development strategies, policies and future prospects of more than 40 developing nations that experienced remarkably strong human development gains over the past two decades. This publication is the companion volume to the 2013 Report. It is an edited collection of nine original research papers commissioned during the writing of the 2013 report from some of the world’s most eminent economists, demographers and social scientists, representing different yet complementary disciplines in the field of human development.

The 2013 report examines the key drivers of inequality that have emerged in the recent past and the impact of rising inequality. It examines key trends in social, economic and spatial inequalities and assesses why inequality matters in order to propose policy solutions to this persistent problem, paying particular attention to the potential role of empowerment and participation. The report highlights inequalities within and across countries and shows the cumulative, mutually-reinforcing effects these inequalities have on the systematic lack of participation and disadvantage of some social groups and on the intergenerational transmission of poverty. The report discusses the role of economic and political institutions in promoting participation and empowerment.

Jacketed Women: Qualitative Research Methodologies on Sexualities and Gender in Africa

The Universal Declaration of Human Rights, adopted by United Nations General Assembly on 10 December 1948, 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.

In 2004, the African Gender Institute ran a continental research project, Mapping Sexualities, among the objectives of which was the development of a research methodology suited to carrying out in-depth case studies of the dynamics of gender and contemporary sexual cultures in Ghana, Nigeria, South Africa and Uganda. This book is the result of that research. The chapters cover broad-ranging issues and include questions about what it means to research topics that are unpopular or fraught with the sense of the taboo that underpins much work in sexualities and gender studies. Overall, the diverse pieces within the collection offer the opportunity to see qualitative research not as the ‘poor cousin’ of quantitative studies but as a zone which raises intellectual and political challenges.

Child Well-being in Rich Countries: A Comparative Overview

Conscientious Objection to Military Service

Part One of this report presents a league table of child well-being in 29 of the world’s advanced economies. Part Two looks at what children say about their own well-being (including a league table of children’s life satisfaction). Part Three examines changes in child well-being in advanced economies over the first decade of the 2000s, looking at each country’s progress in educational achievement, teenage birth rates, childhood obesity levels, the prevalence of bullying, and the use of tobacco, alcohol and drugs.

This publication addresses selective conscientious objection to particular wars, for those who volunteered to serve in the armed forces and in the reserves. For those who are or may be conscripted into the armed forces, this book specifies issues relating to their right to know their rights and applicable procedures, decision-making processes in dealing with applications, and the requirements for fair and impartial procedure. Concerning alternative service to military service, this book addresses the difference between non-combatant alternative service and civilian alternative service, as well as the conditions of alternative service and under what circumstances they may be different from the length and conditions of military service.

All human beings must be able to avail themselves of equal rights, without discrimination, and these rights must be enforced through serious, strategic and sustainable commitments which accommodate both present and long-term challenges. Only then will it be possible to develop an approach which includes each and every citizen and contributes to their well-being and security, so that they can make full use of their capacities, regardless of their age or economic activity.

Independent institutions bring an explicit child focus to traditional adult-oriented governance systems. Acting as direct mechanisms for accountability, they fill gaps in checks and balances and make sure that the impact of policy and practice on children’s rights is understood and recognized. At a time of global economic uncertainty, a period in which inequities between rich and poor are widening, and a period of reflection on progress towards achieving the Millenium Development Goals and in defining what sustainable and equitable goals should come after, these institutions are key players in promoting systems that are effective in delivering results for children.

Promoting and Protecting Minority Rights: A Guide for Advocates

This publication draws on experiences from post-conflict environments in different parts of the world. The authors examine the proactive roles of girls and boys in promoting security for themselves and their families. The publication focuses on children’s suffering and their specific vulnerabilities during and after a war. It also looks into the international legal frameworks created to protect and empower children and youth in postconflict environments, and gives examples of initiatives to help young people escape victimhood and voicelessness. As the young post-war generation will become the next leaders, parents and teachers, ensuring children and youth’s active role in post-conflict peacebuilding today could be among the most effective means of building sustainable peace tomorrow.

United Nations

Minorities make significant contributions to the richness and diversity of society. States that recognize and promote minority rights are more likely to remain tolerant and stable. The United Nations and other intergovernmental organizations recognize that minority rights are essential to protect those who preserve and develop values and practices that they share with their communities. This Guide offers information related to norms and mechanisms that protect the rights of minorities. It provides information on procedures and forums where minority issues are raised within the UN and regional systems. It assists advocates in the use of existing international mechanisms, to promote and protect the rights guaranteed under international instruments.

Organized Crime and Instability in Central Africa: A Threat Assessment

This publication lists national manufacturers authorized by governments to manufacture or convert specific narcotic drugs and psychotropic substances, as well as manufacturers of precursor chemicals, on a country-by-country basis. Along with the name of manufacturers, readers will find contact details and the name of narcotic drugs and/or psychotropic substances each manufacturer is authorized to produce. An index in English, French and Spanish of all substances under international control reported to have been actually manufactured during the year appears at the end of the publication, indicating the country or countries in which manufacture took place and the manufacturers involved.

No area of the world faces a greater challenge with regard to resource-related conflict than Central Africa. The violence and instability in the region has cost millions of lives, ranking among the most deadly in recent history. All those presently indicted by the International Criminal Court come from Central Africa, broadly defined, and more children are exploited in armed conflict in Central Africa than in any other part of the world. While the causes of the conflict are complex, there can be little doubt that resource theft and smuggling have enabled armed groups and perpetuated an environment of lawlessness and impunity. This publication assesses the mechanics of how contraband and resource smuggling fuel conflict, prolong instability and retard development.

Double tax treaties play a key role in the context of international taxation, by reducing or eliminating double taxation over cross-border income, thus encouraging international investment and global economic growth, and by enhancing cooperation among tax administrations, especially in tackling international tax evasion and avoidance. This publication, which is designed especially for developing countries, aims at providing practical guidance to effectively implement double tax treaties and, in particular, those drawing upon the United Nations Model Double Taxation Convention between Developed and Developing Countries. Primary audiences are officials of national tax authorities and other tax professionals, the general public, media and universities.

United Nations

This publication responds to the need expressed by developing countries for clearer guidance on the policy and administrative aspects of applying transfer pricing analysis to some of the transactions of multinational enterprises (MNEs) in particular. Such guidance should not only assist policy makers and administrators in dealing with complex transfer pricing issues, but should also assist taxpayers in their dealings with tax administrations. Without an effective response to transfer pricing issues, profits earned in one jurisdiction might appear to be shifted to another jurisdiction. This may have the net effect of minimizing tax revenues in a country where economic activity of the MNE takes place, and therefore the ability to finance the country’s development.

The Imperative of Good Local Governance: Challenges for the Next Decade of Decentralization

Reflections on the Regional Seminar on Local Governments and Indigenous Peoples

United Nations University

United Nations Development Programme

This state-of-the-art volume on local governance, decentralization and local democracy summarizes original research conducted in the last decade. It is a future-looking volume with explicit policy relevance, that paves the way for innovative thinking (and acting) related to development in the field. From a theoretical perspective it adjoins top–down and bottom–up rationalities, which are illustrated by a variety of case studies. The case studies are selected for their relevance to the current global evolution of decentralized policies and politics. This volume concludes that local politics have a huge potential that needs to be explored. It gives valuable insights into how this can be achieved.

The main objective of this report is to record experiences of local governance and indigenous peoples in seven countries in Latin America (Bolivia, Colombia, Guatemala, Mexico, Nicaragua, Paraguay and Peru). It neither qualifies nor compares experiences. It is rather an attempt to analyse and understand seven different dynamics in their respective political contexts, with their respective protagonists, achievements and challenges. It is intended to complement broader efforts and to offer a reflection as a programming and policy input. A basic framework emerges to understand the design, implementation, critical situations and other elements needed to support local governance and indigenous peoples.

This Technology and Innovation Report argues that with the growing importance of developing countries globally, the time is ripe to move beyond analyzing current trends in SouthSouth trade and investment to begin conceptualizing how and to what extent South-South cooperation can help address specific developmental goals in the developing world. One such goal is bridging the technological divide and promoting industrialization and inclusive globalization within the developing world as a whole. The Report seeks to contribute to new policy insights through relevant data and analysis on south-south technology and innovation issues.

While the international production networks (IPN) phenomenon has accelerated trade and investment linkages between countries in East and South-East Asia, the remainder of the region has not matched those countries in this process. The objective of this study is to explore the reasons for this by using India’s performance in the Asian IPNs as a case study for other countries that are trailing behind in this area. The study seeks to identify the reasons why India has performed below its potential in this new form of international division of labour, even though that country possess several supportive factors including: (a) the sheer size of the economy and population; (b) a large pool of engineers; (c) relatively sound intellectual property protection; and (d) an increasingly open trade and investment climate resulting from progressive economic reforms.

Trade Facilitation in Asia and the Pacific: An Analysis of Import and Export Processes

This edition of the Information Economy Report highlights the growing importance of the software industry for developing countries, building on earlier United Nations Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD) work on the promotion of the ICT sector in general and the software industry in particular. The report contains new data and features the new UNCTAD National Software System Index. It highlights the role of free and open source software for the development of a local software industry, reviews selected country case studies and presents policy options.

This book offers a synthesis of the results and implications from a series of business process analyses of procedures involved in importing and exporting goods to and from selected Asian countries. It aims at deepening the understanding of the nature and significance of the procedural bottlenecks associated with intra-regional trade. It provides a unique set of micro-level information on the time and cost of trade procedures, complementing the more macro-level and cross-country trade facilitation indicators already available in the literature. It will be of interest to those in charge of analyzing or improving trade transaction efficiency in developing countries.

World Investment Report 2013: Global Value Chains - Investment and Trade for Development

Asia-Pacific Trade and Investment Report 2012: Recent Trends and Developments

This publication presents the latest data and analysis of trends in foreign direct investment (FDI) and related policies. The report analyses the sharp decline in global FDI flows in 2012, which was particularly marked among developed countries. As a consequence, developing economies received more FDI than developed countries for the first time ever. Moreover, developing countries were the source of almost one third of global FDI flows. Over the period 2013–2014, FDI flows are projected to rise moderately. However, a number of potentially destabilizing factors may add to the uncertain outlook for the global economy and thus constrain the pace of FDI recovery.

This report focuses on trends and developments in the economies of Asia and the Pacific in their post-recovery from the 2008-2009 crisis and trade collapse. The report finds that after the initial promising signals of a recovery in 2010, exports from Asia and the Pacific are again facing a risk of deceleration. Pressure in the euro zone and the rising threat from a slowdown in the emerging economies have raised the fear of trade and investment contractions. The growth of goods exports in developing Asia and the Pacific countries, in real terms, was expected to drop in 2012, while import growth was projected to fall. Export opportunities continues to depend on the growth of intraregional demand and the ability of developing countries to deal with various external shocks.

Trade and Development Report 2013: Adjusting to the Changing Dynamics of the World Economy United Nations

The shape of the world economy has changed significantly over the last two decades, with a rising importance of several developing countries and regions driving global economic growth. The main objective of this report is to assess the systemic changes in the underlying structure of the world economy and to analyse the resulting policy challenges. The report’s main message is that in order to achieve high, sustained and inclusive growth, developing and transition economies need to move towards a new form of development, away from seeking net-export advantages on the back of global imbalances. Strengthening domestic income and demand and reinvigorating regional coordination are needed.

This report presents the 2010 Revision of the population estimates and projections prepared by the Population Division of the Department of Economic and Social Affairs of the United Nations Secretariat.

The 2010 Revision constitutes the 22nd round of the global population estimates and projections produced by the Population Division since 1951 and it breaks new ground in the production of population projections. For the first time, projections are carried out up to 2100, instead of 2050 as previously. In order to extend the projection period to 2100, a new method for the projection of fertility was developed. The first volume provides comprehensive tables displaying key demographic indicators for each development group, major area, region and country for selected periods or dates within 1950-2100. The 2010 Revision constitutes the twenty second round of the global population estimates and projections produced by the Population Division since 1951 and it breaks new ground in the production of population projections. For the first time, projections are carried out up to 2100, instead of 2050 as previously. In order to extend the projection period to 2100, a new method for the projection of fertility was developed. The method used in the 2010 Revision is based on the advances made in projecting fertility since the 2000 Revision, advances that have been combined with a probabilistic approach to yield the future paths of fertility used in producing the medium variant of the 2010 Revision.

One in every seven children is disabled. Children with disabilities are among the most likely to be marginalized, poor and vulnerable. UNICEF works to improve the lives of children, particularly those who face the greatest disadvantages. The report will investigate the web of barriers disabled children face: discrimination, harmful norms and the lack of accurate information. The report will analyse and provide good-practice guidance on: inclusive health and education; prevention; nutrition; protection from violence, exploitation and abuse; emergency response; institutionalization; and the role of appropriate technology and infrastructure.

Disability at a Glance 2012: Strengthening the Evidence Base in Asia and the Pacific

WORLD DRUG REPORT

2013

The World Drug Report presents a comprehensive overview of the latest developments in drug markets. It covers production, trafficking, consumption and the related health consequences. Chapter 1 of this year’s Report examines the global situation and the latest trends in the different drug markets and the extent of illicit drug use, as well as the related health impact. Chapter 2 addresses the issue of new psychoactive substances (substances of abuse that are not controlled by the Drug Conventions, but which may pose a public health threat), a phenomenon that can have deadly consequences for their users, but which is hard to control with its dynamic producers and fast-mutating “product lines� which have emerged over the last decade.

people in the ESCWA member countries suffer multifaceted exclusion. clusion vary from country to country; ranging from rising unemployment, , exacerbated illiteracy, to decline of social and political participation.

capabilities, these conditions impede life progress of young people integration in society; thus preventing the countries concerned from the demographic window they have and impeding national and even ment. These resources cannot be utilized, now or in the future, without and medium term interventions, within declared powerful youth policies reas, based on specific goals and targets that mobilize all the necessary policies would be guided by the World Programme of Action for Youth to d Beyond and best international practices.

The World Drug Report aims to improve understanding of the illicit drug problem and contribute to more international cooperation for countering it. The first chapter gives an overview of recent trends and the drug situation in terms of production, traďŹƒcking and consumption, and the consequences of illicit drug use in terms of treatment, drugrelated diseases and drug-related deaths. The second chapter focuses on New Psychoactive Substances, i.e. psychoactive substances not under international control. It presents emerging trends in the composition, production and distribution, patterns of use and approaches taken by countries in response to the emergence of these substances.

Millions of children are on the move, both within and between countries, with or without their parents. The conditions under which movement takes place are often treacherous, putting migrant children, especially unaccompanied and separated children, at an increased risk of economic or sexual exploitation, abuse, neglect and violence. Policy responses to protect and support these migrant children are often fragmented and inconsistent and while children on the move have become a recognised part of today’s global and mixed migration flows they are still largely invisible in debates on both child protection and migration.

This publication is one of a series of analytical reports issued by the United Nations Economic and Social Commission for Western Asia (ESCWA). It aims to deepen knowledge of the interrelation between population and development issues. The report focuses on the millions of young people in the Arab States suffering multifaceted exclusion, which impede life progress of young people and reduce their integration in society. Expeditious short- and medium-term interventions within declared powerful youth policies guided by the World Program of Action for Youth to the Year 2000 and Beyond and best international practices are needed for national and regional development.

The World Migration Report 2013 contributes to the global debate on migration and development in three ways: First, the focus of the report is on the migrant, and on how migration affects a person’s well-being. Many reports on migration and development focus on the impact of remittances: the money that migrants send back home. This report takes a different approach, exploring how migration affects a person’s quality of life and their human development across a broad range of dimensions. Second, the report draws upon the findings of a unique source of data – the Gallup World Poll surveys, conducted in more than 150 countries, to assess the well-being of migrants worldwide for the first time. Third, the report sheds new light on how migrants rate their lives, whether they live in a highincome country in the North, or a low or middle income country in the South. Traditionally the focus has been on those migrating from lower income countries to more affluent ones; this report considers movements in all four migration pathways and their implications for development i.e. migration from the South to North, between countries of the South or between countries of the North, as well as movements from the North to the South.

The first three chapters of the World Migration Report 2013 provide an introduction to the chosen theme ‘Migrant Well-being and Development’, present the current global migration situation across four migration pathways and review existing research on the emerging field of happiness and subjective well-being. Chapter four presents original findings on migrant well-being from the Gallup World Poll, looking at outcomes on six core dimensions of wellbeing across the four migration pathways.

The final part draws conclusions and makes recommendations for future initiatives to monitor migrant well-being and the impact of migration on development, with reference to the inclusion of migration in the post-2015 global development framework.

Migrant Well-being and developMent

5

Since the first-ever UN General Assembly High-level Dialogue on International Migration and Development (HLD) in 2006, the international debate about how best to harness the benefits of migration for development has intensified significantly. Yet migration remains inadequately integrated into development frameworks at national and local levels, and public perceptions of migrants and migration are often very negative.

World Migration Report 2013: Migrant Well-being and Development International Organization for Migration

The seventh report in the World Migration Report (WMR) series, explores the positive and negative effects of migration on individual well-being. It is published amidst a growing debate on how the benefits of migration can best be harnessed for development. This report contributes to the global debate on migration and development in three ways, specifically, by presenting a more holistic picture of development, by assessing the well-being of migrants worldwide for the first time using findings of the Gallup World Poll conducted in more than 150 countries, and by analysing how migration outcomes differ depending on the origin and destination of migrants.

This volume presents a number of approaches to improve the collection, reporting and analysis of crime and criminal justice statistics at the international level. It describes how the development of indicators on specific forms of crime such as trafficking in persons, smuggling of migrants and corruption can better our understanding of these criminal activities and enhance global efforts to prevent and control them. It also addresses how to improve the availability and comparability of crime and criminal justice statistics regarding a particular crime type (trafficking in persons), a specific criminal justice field (juvenile justice) or a particular geographic area (Europe). Finally, it presents ongoing efforts to develop an international crime classification system.

Guidelines for Producing Statistics on Violence against Women: Statistical Surveys

The Statistical Yearbook is an annual compilation of a wide range of international economic, social and environmental statistics on over 200 countries and areas, compiled from sources including UN agencies and other international, national and specialized organizations. The 56th edition contains data available to the Statistics Division as of 31 December 2012, and presents them in 65 tables on topics such as: agriculture, forestry and fishing; communication; development assistance; education; energy; environment; finance; gender; international merchandise trade; international tourism; labour force; manufacturing; national accounts; population; prices; and science and technology. The number of years of data shown in the tables varies from one to ten, with most tables covering the period up to 2010 or 2011.

Violence against women is an obstacle to achieve equality, development and peace. It violates human rights and fundamental freedoms. In all societies, women and girls are subjected to abuse that cuts across lines of income, class and culture. Data on various forms of violence against women, the causes and consequences of violence, are the starting point for developing effective mechanisms at policy levels to eradicate this phenomenon. Properly designed and executed, surveys produce the most reliable data on the prevalence of violence and shed light on the scope, nature and consequences of such violence. Surveys also collect information on circumstances surrounding violence, health consequences and the actions women took to seek help.

Integrating a Gender Perspective into Statistics

Principles and Recommendations for a Vital Statistics System

The primary objective of this manual is to foster a gender perspective in national statistics. Recognizing that systematic integration of gender in regular statistical activities is still missing in many countries, the manual has been designed to guide a sustainable development of gender statistics. The manual provides concrete information needed to accomplish three main goals: to achieve a comprehensive coverage of gender issues in data production activities; to incorporate a gender perspective into the design of surveys or censuses, by taking into account gender issues and gender-biases in measurement; and to improve data analysis and data presentation and deliver gender statistics in a format easy to use by policy makers and planners.

This revised publication is an international standard on the design and operation of an efficient and accurate vital statistics system at national level. It provides guidelines on collection, compiling and disseminating vital statistics. It contains basic principles for a vital statistics system; uses of vital statistics and civil registration records; topics to be covered in a vital statistics system; sources of vital statistics and how they function; quality assurance in the vital statistics system and strategies in improving civil registration and vital statistics systems in countries. This publication also informs policy makers and the general public on the importance of vital statistics and further improving the vital statistics system.

Guidelines on Integrated Economic Statistics

This publication presents time series statistics and indicators on economic and social issues in all fourteen Arab Region member countries. The Abstract, divided into twelve chapters, addresses: population; labour force; education and illiteracy; health; gender equality; national accounts; energy; industry; transport; foreign trade; financial statistics and prices; and information and communications technology. Data contained in the Abstract were primarily collected from national statistical sources in the Arab Region, through questionnaires or from statistical abstracts and bulletins issued by official authorities in member countries. The Abstract relies on data issued by international organizations and agencies, with priority given to UN sources.

The motivating source of developing guidance for the operational use of an integrated approach to economic statistics in national statistical programmes has been the benefits of integrated economic statistics for nationally and internationally coordinated economic policy. The methodological and practical guidelines in this publication respond to the recognized need for an integrated approach to increase the coherence and consistency of basic economic statistics for enhancing the quality and analytical value of both basic economic statistics and macroeconomic statistics. The Guidelines build upon international standards manuals by describing principles and detailed practices for further increasing the consistency and coherence of economic data within countries, over time, and across countries.

Basic Facts about the United Nations 2014

No day is quite the same in the life of a peacekeeper and working in the field has its demands and rewards. Peace operations continue to evolve with more robust and multidimensional mandates requiring expertise in human rights, justice, rule of law, security and political diplomacy, to name a few. The Year in Review features the activities of the UN Peacekeeping Missions in 2012, highlighting the successes and challenges that emerge throughout the year. It looks at how these challenges-- many times unforeseen, always under difficult conditions --are met by the peacekeepers on the ground as they work towards maintaining peace and security, protecting civilians, and providing support to fragile societies and governments in postconflict settings.

This comprehensive handbook designed for the general public explains the structure of the United Nations, how the Organization works, the main issues it addresses and its importance for people everywhere. In addition to setting out the various roles played by principle UN organs and related organizations, Basic Facts about the United Nations documents the Organization’s contributions to international peace and security, economic and social development, human rights, humanitarian action, international law and decolonization. Appendices contain current data on UN membership and peacekeeping operations, as well as contact information for UN information centres, services and offices. This latest edition has been revised to take account of significant developments in the world and the Organization itself since 2011.

In this publication it is argued that one nation–one vote decision-making in most United Nations agencies fails to reflect the distribution of power in the world at large. Hence, nations are reluctant to endow the UN with the authority and the resources it needs. It is proposed that systemic improvements, largely through weighted voting formulae that balance the needs of stakeholders in diverse UN agencies be introduced. It indicates ways by which the interests of regions can supplement those of nations. It also proposes that NGOs and ordinary citizens be given a greater voice. The aim is not to create an unrealistic utopia, but rather to establish a workable world where law supplants force and where sustainable development prevails.

Post-conflict Reconstruction and Development in Africa: Concepts, Role-players, Policy and Practice

The present report reveals backsliding on a number of commitments covered by Millennium Development Goal (MDG) 8 in the past year, and some progress in others. Official development assistance has fallen for a second year in a row and the multilateral trade negotiations remain at an impasse, but duty free access for exports from developing countries has improved. While the use of information and communication technologies increases, the costs remain higher in developing countries and essential medicines remain insufficiently accessible. Thus, there are some signs that political momentum for advancing international development cooperation has weakened. However, some governments have consistently pursued their commitments despite domestic austerity policies.

During the 1990s, nine out of ten of the bloodiest conflicts occurred in Africa. Despite some twenty peacebuilding operations in Africa in the last 25 years there is still a significant lack of cohesive strategy to target key areas in the regeneration of a conflict-ridden country. An Afrocentric perspective is therefore a suitable starting point for researching strategies for post-conflict peacebuilding. This book explores South Africa’s policy imperatives to integrate development projects and peace missions, involving the military as well as civilian organizations. It intends to foster understanding of the particular processes required to develop a sustainable and cohesive post-conflict peacebuilding strategy within the African environment.

Primordial Leadership: Peacebuilding and National Ownership in Timor-Leste

Yearbook of the United Nations 2009 United Nations

United Nations University

This publication shows that in post-conflict Timor-Leste, leadership was key in building sustainable peace. Helping leaders turn recent security crises into opportunities to foster democratic governance was primordial. While democratic principles are necessary in the long term, it is not sufficient for building sustainable peace in a post-conflict period. Timor-Leste succeeded due to its leaders’ commitment to national interest, identity and unity; the ability to harmonize universal ideals and principles of governance with local values and customs; the empowerment of others and the capability to transform the mindset and mentality of its people.

Charter of the United Nations and Statute of the International Court of Justice United Nations

The Charter of the United Nations was signed in 1945 by 51 countries representing all continents, paving the way for the creation of the United Nations on 24 October 1945. The Statute of the International Court of Justice forms part of the Charter. The aim of the Charter is to prevent war; to reaffirm human rights and the dignity and worth of the human person; to proclaim equal rights for men and women from both large and small nations; and to promote the prosperity of all humankind. The Charter is the foundation of international peace and security.

Volume I: Comprehensive Tables

United Nations publication Printed in the United States of America ISSN 1010-447X

The 2010 Revision constitutes the twenty second round of the global population estimates and projections produced by the Population Division since 1951 and it breaks new ground in the production of population projections. For the first time, projections are carried out up to 2100, instead of 2050 as previously. In order to extend the projection period to 2100, a new method for the projection of fertility was developed. The method used in the 2010 Revision is based on the advances made in projecting fertility since the 2000 Revision, advances that have been combined with a probabilistic approach to yield the future paths of fertility used in producing the medium variant of the 2010 Revision. The full results of the 2010 Revision are presented in two volumes. The first volume provides comprehensive tables displaying key demographic indicators for each development group, major area, region and country for selected periods or dates within 19502100. The second volume contains demographic profiles presenting time series and plots covering the period from 1950 to 2100 for selected indicators for each country with at least 100,000 inhabitants in 2010 as well as for development groups, major areas and regions.

The Survey finds that most countries can finance such a package without jeopardizing macroeconomic stability, although least developed countries would also require global partnership and development cooperation. The analysis underlines the need to move forward the regional development agenda from a discussion on the future we want to the means of implementation to realize that future.

2011

A f f a i r s

As an illustrative example, the Survey 2013 estimates, for a number of Asia-Pacific countries, the public investment needs required to deliver a package of policies to sustain growth and to promote inclusive and sustainable development. The policy package comprises a job guarantee programme, a universal pension scheme, disability benefits, increased public health spending, universal school enrolment and universal access to modern energy.

ECONOMIC AND SOCIAL SURVEY OF ASIA AND THE PACIFIC 2013

The 2013 edition of the Economic and Social Survey of Asia and the Pacific argues that macroeconomic policies can play a key role not only in supporting the economies of the region in the short term, but also in reorienting the region towards a more inclusive and sustainable pattern of development. By carefully designing short-term support measures, it is possible to sustain growth as well as address long-term structural issues.

Half a decade since the onset of the Great Recession, the Asia-Pacific region continues to anchor the global economy, but its rate of economic growth remains subdued compared to the pre-global financial crisis period. It is also showing signs of strain, as uncertainty and crisis deepen in the United States and the euro zone. More importantly, the Asia-Pacific region’s growth path continues to leave behind hundreds of millions and to put unsustainable pressure on the natural resource base.
