Economics for health sector analysis : concepts and cases by A. Mead Over( )

4 editions published between 1991 and 1992 in English and held by 576 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The purpose of this manual is to introduce people trained in health professions, but not in economics, to the basic economic principles that will best help them decide how to allocate resources in the health sector. The manual contains five chapters. Chapter one examines the links between the health sector and the other components of the developing economy. Chapter two examines the affordability of financing health projects. Chapter three looks at the specifics of a single project, using a series of memoranda from the chief planning officer of the Ministry of Health of a fictional country (Barsoom) to a deputy assistant planner, thus demonstrating three important practical techniques: i) how to develop financial cost estimates of a health care project; ii) how to determine whether a government is able to afford a given project whose future costs have been estimated; and iii) how to recover part of a project's cost and to predict the revenue that a project can raise. The fourth chapter looks at methods of estimating a project's effects as well as its costs and then uses the results to conduct a cost-effectiveness or cost-benefit analysis. The fifth chapter demonstrates the techniques of cost-effectiveness analysis in five case studies based on World Bank experience

Poverty alleviation through agricultural projects : report on a seminar held jointly by the Asian Development Bank, the Centre on Integrated Rural Development for Asia and the Pacific, and the Economic Development Institute of the World Bank by Emmanuel H D'Silva( )

3 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 557 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Of the estimated 1 billion people in the developing world who survive in conditions of extreme poverty, 70 percent live in Asia. The majority of these people live in rural areas and agriculture is their main occupation. Most of the rural poor are small and marginal farmers, landless agricultural workers, fisherfolk, artisans, female headed households, the aged and infirm, and children. The incidence of poverty is highest among female heads of households and children. The seminar on "Poverty Alleviation through Agricultural Projects" provided thirty development practitioners with an opportunity to consider strategies, policies, and practices that help alleviate rural poverty. The seminar discussed four key issues of relevance to policy makers: (1) poverty cannot be measured by income alone; (2) poverty cannot be alleviated through a short-term, piecemeal approach; (3) agricultural projects constitute one of the many means available to governments for alleviating rural poverty; and (4) the role of public sector in poverty alleviation needs to be reconsidered
Economic analysis of agricultural projects by J. Price Gittinger( Book )

17 editions published between 1971 and 1989 in 4 languages and held by 530 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Increasing the growth and efficiency of the agricultural and rural sectors of the developing countries is of prime concern to the international community. The large quantities of scarce resources, both people and money, that will be required for progress in this area must be used efficiently. In view of this, the book presents a sound, careful methodology for project analysis. The process is interactive, going back and adjusting earlier decisions based on what is learned. The sequence of topics presented generally follows the order of the analytical process in preparing a financial, and then an economic, analysis of an agricultural project. It does not consider in detail the technical, institutional, social, or commercial aspects. The following topics are examined: (i) costs and benefits; (ii) finding market prices; (iii) transforming these prices into accounts; (iv) preparing and projecting farm budgets; (v) preparing and projecting budgets for agricultural processing industries; (vi) estimating the effect on government revenue; (vii) adjusting market prices; (viii) aggregation of economic values; and (ix) estimating returns to be realized by individuals and by society. A set of generalized guidelines is included
Food policy : integrating supply, distribution, and consumption by J. Price Gittinger( Book )

4 editions published between 1985 and 1987 in English and held by 483 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In many developing countries the persistent problem of hunger calls for policies that encompass not only production of food but also its distribution and its use by consumers. This book brings together the best of current thinking on food policy -- by specialists in agriculture, nutrition, management, public health, education, development, and other fields. In their introductory chapter and in the overviews of the six parts of the book, the editors place the individual contributions within the broad framework of food policy
Access to basic infrastructure by the urban poor by Aurelio Menéndez( )

5 editions published in 1991 in English and held by 457 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report documents discussions on urban poverty issues in the developing countries of Latin America, Africa, and Asia related to the urban poor's access to basic infrastructure services. Basic infrastructure services are services that allow the urban poor to live under conditions that facilitate their income-generating activities so they can maintain a good nutritional level and participate in the normal activities of society. Services include housing, transportation, water, sanitation, solid waste disposal, and energy for cooking and lighting. In addition to discussing ways to improve the conditions of the poor in urban areas through the provision of basic infrastructure services, the workshop also laid the groundwork for follow-up regional senior policy seminars in Latin America, Africa, and Asia. While workshop participants did not attempt to conclude with formal policy recommendations, they did develop general areas of consensus. The focus of the workshop discussions were on the following concerns: financial issues; the role of nongovernmental organizations; the role of governments; and the relationship between nongovernmental organizations and the governments

The adaptive economy : adjustment policies in small, low-income countries by Tony Killick( )

6 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 380 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is an informal textbook on the principles of adjustment policy with special reference to small, low-income countries. It starts from the promise that all economies need to adapt constantly to changing circumstances if they are to achieve reasonable rates of development. In this respect, adjustment is now viewed simply as a phenomenon of the late twentieth century nor a preliminary step in the struggle for economic development

Financial sector reforms in Asian and Latin American countries : lessons of comparative experience by Shakil Faruqi( )

7 editions published between 1993 and 1994 in English and held by 341 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report summarizes the papers and associated discussion presented at the Senior Policy Seminar held in Santiago, Chile between 25th and 28th of May, 1992. The seminar involved ministers, central bank governors and senior officials from several Latin American and Asian economies as well as several representatives of international organizations. The central purpose of the seminar was to comparatively assess the wide range of country experiences with financial reform in the two regions, with a view to distilling general lessons. The materials presented were oriented mainly around the diverse experiences of financial policy formulation and implementation during the 1980s and early 1990s. These materials supported discussion of a variety of subthemes, including the management of financial crises, the interaction of financial liberalization with more general economic reforms, the industrial policy aspects of financial reform, and the roles of governments in stimulating the development of specific types of financial markets and institutions. The presentation during the four days included country papers as well as a variety of more general and synoptic papers included in this publication
Aspects of development bank management by V. V Bhatt( Book )

4 editions published in 1982 in English and held by 341 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is the first book to deal exclusively with the management of development banks, their specific problems, and various ways of addressing them. The book comprises eight sections, each dealing with one aspect of management: management's role and priorities; the establishment of goals and strategies; economic and social evaluation of projects; promotion and innovation; development of small-scale enterprises; financial management; organization and staff development; and government and development bank relations. Each section opens with an introduction by the editors, highlighting the relation of the various issues confronting management and the role of management in dealing with them. Most of these essays were originally prepared for a two-week seminar sponsored by EDI in February 1979
Compounding and discounting tables for project analysis : with a guide to their applications by J. Price Gittinger( Book )

4 editions published in 1984 in English and held by 335 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The preparation and analysis of development projects require much computation - of internal rates of return, benefit-cost ratios, net present worth, and rates of growth. For these and many other calculations, project planners and analysts will find this book a convenient and time-saving reference. Six-decimal tables for 1 percent through 50 percent show the compounding factor for 1 and for 1 per annum, the sinking fund factor, the discount factor, the present worth of an annuity factor, and the capital recovery factor. Summary present worth tables give project analysts at a glance the discount factors most used to calculate measures of project worth. Narrow-interval compounding tables give the compounding factor for 1 at fractional interest rates from 0.0 through 20.9 percent. All tables give values for project years 1 through 50. This new edition sets out the same careful and practical methodology for analyzing agricultural investments but adds a wealth of recent project data, expanded treatment of farm budgets and efficiency prices, appendixes on presenting project preparation reports and on using discounting tables, an expanded and completely annotated bibliography, and a detailed glossary of technical terms
