This report seeks to explain: 1) what is legal empowerment 2) how legal empowerment is relevant to the development community 3) how the development community can incorporate legal empowerment initiatives into their development programs"--Web site ADB
A bibliography of the land mammals of Southeast Asia, 1699-1969 by Gwilym S Jones( Book )

2 editions published in 1976 in English and held by 74 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This bibliography was compiled in order to provide zoologists, medical and paramedical investigators, and others with a single source of references for the land mammals of Southeast Asia. The task was originally undertaken in conjunction with an investigation of mammal-borne anthropozoonoses in Southeast Asia. The countries primarily covered by this work are Burma, Thailand, Laos, Cambodia, North and South Vietnam, the Republic of the Philippines, Indonesia, Malaysia, and Hainan Island. Major works concerning mammals of India and southern China have also been included because of close faunal relationships and because authors who worked in India (and what is now Bangladesh) have frequently included Burma as a part of their study area. Papers presenting the results of laboratory experiments with captive animals are not included, although papers presenting physiological, anatomical, and parasitological data applicable to the natural state of the species are included

3 editions published between 2004 and 2012 in English and held by 42 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report presents the results of research undertaken by The World Bank and The Asia Foundation to identify barriers to trade and investment in East Java. This activity was initiated by the World Bank and The Asia Foundation with several important aims: (i) to support private sector participation in the public planning process related to potential World Bank assistance for infrastructure projects; (ii) to provide an opportunity for the private sector to express their concerns to local governments and to make recommendations for improving the business climate; and (iii) to encourage increased coordination between local governments in stimulating trade between regions. The role of the Asia Foundation / World Bank Team was to identify barriers to trade and investment and to facilitate activities to introduce a sustainable and replicable process for how regional governments can best work with the private sector in creating a conducive business climate

Voice, Choice, and Decision 2 A Study of Local Basic Service Delivery in Cambodia by Asia Foundation( )

2 editions published between 2013 and 2014 in English and held by 38 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Voice, Choice and Decision (VCD): a study of local governance processes in Cambodia (VCD1) study, conducted in 2011, led to a set of useful insights into the channels through which citizens are heard in commune level decision-making. It presented the formal and informal framework for, and constraints to, citizens' voicing issues, and the overall downward accountability framework of commune and sangkats in Cambodia. The findings of this exploration provide policy makers, development partners and other stakeholders significantly more detail and in-depth understanding of commune decision-making processes and the engagement of citizens, informing both quantitative studies and the very extensive literature on decentralization reform. Voice, Choice and Decision: local basic service delivery: (VCD2) aims to generate better understanding of the platform for citizen and user voice in basic service delivery by considering, in detail, the nature, scope and role of local agents (committees, institutions, individuals) established to implement sector policies, and to identify any other informal channels for the voice of citizens and users of services. In its final form, the study focuses on developing an understanding of voice and accountability in three sectors, health, education and rural water supply. The research and documentation adopted a common framework to the extent possible, considering, in the first instance, what was intended by policy (the arena, organizations, roles and relationships), and comparing this with the reality on the ground in each of the sectors. This final paper then considers the cross cutting themes, identifying the commonalities and differences between these sectors

Election commissions and the provision of information : a comparative study of better practices globally by Centre for Law and Democracy( )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 37 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Election commissions the world over use many systems to disseminate information, including different types of media (print, radio and television), direct contact with voters and other systems (such as billboards, brochures and SMS messages). However, in many countries, the Internet is becoming an increasingly important system for the dissemination of information. This is of course true for everyone, and all public bodies, but it is fair to say that, around the world, election commissions tend to have some of the most accessible, comprehensive and detailed websites of any public body. Indeed, many election commissions have taken important steps to turn their websites into information hubs providing access to information about almost every aspect of elections. This Report thus focuses heavily on the use of the Internet by election commissions, due to the relative novelty of the Internet in many countries, the particular lack of studies and standards on the use of the Internet by election commissions, and the widely varying scope, content and management of websites by election commissions"--
