Agricultural Land Redistribution Toward Greater Consensus Edited by Hans P. Binswanger-Mkhize, Camille Bourguignon, and Rogier J. E. van den Brink

Despite 250 years of land reform all over the world, important land inequalities remain, especially in Latin America and Southern Africa. While there is near consensus on the need for redistribution in these countries, much controversy persists around how to redistribute land peacefully and legally, often blocking progress on implementation. This book focuses on the “how” of land redistribution in order to forge greater consensus among land reform practitioners and enable them to make better choices on the mechanisms of land reform. Reviews and case studies describe and analyze the alternative implementation options. AGRICULTURE AND RURAL DEVELOPMENT SERIES

Preventing Money Laundering and Terrorist Financing A Practical Guide for Bank Supervisors By Pierre-Laurent Chatain, John McDowell, Cedric Mousset, Paul Allan Schott, and Emile van der Does de Willebois

Money laundering and terrorist financing are serious crimes that affect not only those persons directly involved, but the economy as a whole. According to international standards, every bank has the obligation to know its customers and to report suspicious transactions. Although these obligations sound straightforward, they have proved challenging to implement. It is here that a supervisor can play a crucial role in helping supervised institutions; first, in understanding the full extent of the obligations of Customer D ue Diligence and Suspicious Transaction Reports (STR) and, second, in ensuring that those obligations are not just words on paper but are applied in practice. Effective supervision is key to the success of a countr y’s AML/CFT system. By providing examples of good practices, this book aims to help countries better conform to international standar ds. In this regard, this handbook is specifically designed for bank supervisors. May 2009. 304 pages. Stock no. C17912 (ISBN: 978-0-8213-7912-7). US$39.95

Global Development Finance 2009 Charting a Global Recovery Global Development Finance—the World Bank’s annual report on the external financing of developing countries—provides monitoring and analysis of development finance, identifying key emerging trends and policy challenges in international financial flows that are likely to affect the growth prospects of developing countries. Never before has the outlook for financial flows to developing countries been so intricately tied to the specter of collective action by the international community to restore confidence in the functioning of global financial markets and institutions. As the world economy heads toward a deep, broad-based economic slowdown with implications for development finance still in the making, revisionism and anxiety ride high as officials in both developing and developed countries question not only the merits of financial openness and the degree of necessary safeguards, but also the entire architecture of the global financial system.

Edited by Kym Anderson and associates

The fifth and last volume in the series focuses on distortions to agricultural incentives from a global perspective. It brings together the first-ever comprehensive and consistent set of estimates of the changing extent of those distortions over the past half-century. Those estimates show when each country’s reforms began, how rapidly and completely they have progressed, how much of the improved incentives for farmers is due to r eform of agricultural as compared with non-agricultural policies, which have ‘overshot’ to become agricultural protectionists like many high-income countries, and to what extent an anti-trade bias remains. Also provided are analytical narratives of the evolution of farm versus non-farm policies in each of dozens of countries, covering in aggregate around 90 percent of agricultural output and 95 percent of the world economy. Such a comprehensive coverage exposes also the different degrees to which the key agricultural product markets have been and still are distorted. The book concludes with new estimates of the effects of reforms since the early 1980s and of current policies – agricultural vs industrial – on such things as global goods mar kets, national economic welfare, and net farm incomes in all the major de veloping and high-income countries.

The Political Economy of the World Bank The Early Years By Michele Alacevich

This book is a fascinating study of economic history and history of economic thought. It narrates the history of the World Bank and the establishment of its role as leading development institution. The book analyzes the complexities of the Bank’s first steps towards economic and social development in poorer nations, and helps the reader understand some foundational questions about development that are still of great relevance today. The lesson that can be drawn f rom this book is that the World Bank and the developing countries as they are today are the result of their history—a history of constant transformation and adjustment to the ever-changing challenges of development. History shows paths of development, and as such it should not be ignored by today’s policymakers.

The voices of these teachers suggest that a number of obstacles are commonly faced by teachers living with HIV. Paramount among them are stigma and discrimination, both within their families and communities as well as their workplaces and in society more generally. The difficulties of overcoming stigma and discrimination are further exacerbated by a failure to ensure confidentiality in the workplace.

An increasing number of developing countries are introducing School-Based Management (SBM) reforms aimed at empowering principals and teachers or at strengthening their professional motivation, thereby enhancing their sense of ownership of the school. Many of these reforms have also strengthened parental involvement in the schools, sometimes by means of school councils. This book spells out the concept and theor etical framework of School-based management, reviews the evidence, supports designing of impact assessments in var ious countries, and provides some initial guidance to teams preparing education projects with a component on decentralization of authority.

Rethinking School Feeding

Escaping Stigma and Neglect

Social Safety Nets, Child Development, and the Education Sector

People with Disabilities in Sierra Leone By Mirey Ovadiya and Giuseppe Zampaglione

By Donald Bundy, Carmen Burbano, Margaret Grosh, Aulo Gelli, Matthew Jukes, and Lesley Drake

This review was prepared jointly by the World Bank Group and the World Food Programme (WFP), building on the comparative advantages of both organizations. It examines the evidence base for school feeding programs with the objective of better understanding how to develop and implement effective school feeding programs in two contexts: a productive safety net, as part of the response to the social shocks of the global food, fuel and financial crises, and a fiscally sustainable investment in human capital, as part of long-term global efforts to achieve Education for All and provide social protection to the poor.

This paper aims to provide a diagnosis on the sc ale and nature of the challenges faced by people with disabilities in S ierra Leone, analyze current public policies in support of people with disabilities, review public and private programs, and propose policy options to policy makers and development partners.

Governments and civil society in Latin America and the Caribbean should be well informed about the potential costs and benefits of combating climate change, their policy options over the next decades, and the global context for these policy decisions. At the same time, the global community needs to be better informed about the unique perspective of the Latin American and Caribbean region: problems the region will face, its potential contributions toward combating global warming, and how to maximize this potential while continuing to maintain growth and reduce poverty. This book, a companion volume to Low Carbon, High Growth: Latin American Responses to Climate Change, seeks to help fill both these needs.

INFRASTRUCTURE, TRANSPORT, AND URBAN DEVELOPMENT

Africa’s Infrastructure

Urbanization and Growth

A Time for Transformation

Edited by Michael Spence, Patricia Clarke Annez, and Robert M. Buckley

Africa’s infrastructure lags well behind the rest of the developing world. Inadequate infrastructure is holding back growth by two percentage points annually. Solving the problem will cost over US$90 billion dollars per year, about twice what is spent today. More money is desperately needed; but money alone is not the answer. Prudent policies can make current resources go much further, and contribute significantly to narrowing the infrastructure gap.

Two Dragon Heads Contrasting Development Paths for Beijing and Shanghai By Shahid Yusuf and Kaoru Nabeshima

Beijing and Shanghai comprise the axes of China’s two leading urban regions. Their economic fortunes will affect the overall growth of China. The economic composition of the two megacities differs significantly and the future sources of competitive advantage also lie in different areas although there is some overlap. Shanghai with its diverse industrial base is the industrial powerhouse of China. Its strongest growth prospects still lie in activities associated with manufacturing industry buttressed by improvements in the technological and innovation capabilities of domestic firms and supported by the deepening of business ser vices. In contrast, Beijing’s future prospects are more closely tied to research intensive activities and the ser vices industry. This book explores the contrasting development options available to Beijing and Shanghai and proposes strategies for these cities based on their current and acquired capabilities, experience of other world cities, the emerging demand in the national market, and likely trends in global trade.

First in a series of thematic volumes, this book was prepared for the Commission on Growth and Development to evaluate the state of knowledge of the r elationship between urbanization and economic growth. It does not pretend to provide all the answers, but it does identify insights and polic y levers to help countries make urbanization work as part of a national growth strategy. It examines a variety of topics: the relevance and policy implications of recent advances in urban economics for developing countries, the role of economic geography in global economic trends and trade patterns, the impacts of urbanization on spatial inequality within countries, and alternative approaches to financing the substantial inf rastructure investments required in developing-country cities. Written by prominent academics in their fields, Urbanization and Growth seeks to create a better understanding of the role of urbanization in growth and to inform policy makers tackling the formidable challenges it poses.

BESTSELLER The Impact of Private Sector Participation in Infrastructure Lights, Shadows, and the Road Ahead By Luis Andres, J. Luis Guasch, Thomas Haven, and Vivien Foster

Infrastructure plays a key role in fostering growth and productivity and has been linked to impr oved earnings, health, and education levels for the poor. Yet Latin America and the Caribbean are currently faced with a dangerous combination of relatively low public and private infrastructure investment. Those investment levels must increase, and it can be done. If Latin American and Caribbean governments are to increase infrastructure investment in politically feasible ways, it is critical that they learn from experience and have an accurate idea of future impacts. This book contributes to this aim by producing what is arguably the most comprehensive privatization impact analysis in the region to date, drawing on an extremely comprehensive dataset.
