Declining inequality in Latin America : a decade of progress? by Luis Felipe López-Calva( )

2 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 1,883 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Why is inequality finally declining in a region marked by uncommonly high--and previously persistent--income disparities? And what does it imply for the future? In this excellent book, Lopez-Calva, Lustig, and their outstanding team of authors do not shy away from the complexity inherent in the interaction of economics, policy, and politics that lay behind changes in the distribution of incomes."--Francisco H.G. Ferreira, Deputy Chief Economist for Latin America, World Bank
Sustaining life : how human health depends on biodiversity by Eric Chivian( Book )

3 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 1,783 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From the Publisher: The Earth's biodiversity-the rich variety of life on our planet-is disappearing at an alarming rate. And while many books have focused on the expected ecological consequences, or on the aesthetic, ethical, sociological, or economic dimensions of this loss, Sustaining Life is the first book to examine the full range of potential threats that diminishing biodiversity poses to human health. Edited and written by Harvard Medical School physicians Eric Chivian and Aaron Bernstein, along with more than 100 leading scientists who contributed to writing and reviewing the book, Sustaining Life presents a comprehensive-and sobering-view of how human medicines, biomedical research, the emergence and spread of infectious diseases, and the production of food, both on land and in the oceans, depend on biodiversity. The book's ten chapters cover everything from what biodiversity is and how human activity threatens it to how we as individuals can help conserve the world's richly varied biota. Seven groups of organisms, some of the most endangered on Earth, provide detailed case studies to illustrate the contributions they have already made to human medicine, and those they are expected to make if we do not drive them to extinction. Drawing on the latest research, but written in language a general reader can easily follow, Sustaining Life argues that we can no longer see ourselves as separate from the natural world, nor assume that we will not be harmed by its alteration. Our health, as the authors so vividly show, depends on the health of other species and on the vitality of natural ecosystems. With a foreword by E.O. Wilson and a prologue by Kofi Annan, and more than 200 poignant color illustrations, Sustaining Life contributes essential perspective to the debate over how humans affect biodiversity and a compelling demonstration of the human health costs
Making global trade work for people by Kamal Malhotra( )

The world's trade regime is promoted by international agencies and most governments as the best way to lift the poor out of poverty and achieve sustainable development. But does it contribute to human development or not? This reassessment looks in detail at the way it has worked under the GATT and under the World Trade Organization and analyses how it is working and how it can be improved. The book aims to make major contribution to the debates surrounding globalization and the impact of trade on the poor on social stability and on the environment. It is intended to provide a benchmark for fut

Malaysia : enterprise training, technology, and productivity by World Bank( )

4 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 609 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report presents the findings of a study of enterprise-based training in Malaysia ' s manufacturing sector which was jointly sponsored by the World Bank, the United Nations Development Programme, and the Economic Planning Unit, a Malaysian government agency. Using data from a survey of 2,200 companies, the study investigates the incidence and productivity outcomes of employer-sponsored training in in-house company programs and from external training providers, and the role of government policies and incentives in encouraging private sector training. The study also looks more broadly at technology in firms, their use of quality control systems, and the skill requirements associated with the use of new technology and organizational change. The report concludes that while some firms, especially the larger, more technologically progressive ones and the multinational companies do provide training, in general, most Malaysian firms underinvest in employee training. It documents the primacy of the private sector
Investing in the future : setting educational priorities in the Developing World by Jacques Hallak( Book )

8 editions published between 1990 and 1993 in 3 languages and held by 467 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Broadly defined, human resource development (HRD) involves the education, training, and utilization of human potentials for social and economic progress. Of five interdependent energizers for HRD (education, health and nutrition, the environment, employment, and political and economic freedom), education is an essential factor for improving all the others. Since the economic crisis facing developing countries poses grave problems for education and HRD, setting new priorities becomes a major priority for policymakers. This book, aimed at synthesizing fundamental educational policy issues, is divided into four parts. Part I is a comparative overview of the past, the present, and possible future conditions affecting education's progress in the developing world. In all societies, the goals of improving and expanding HRD are amply justified on ethical, cultural, social, and economic grounds. Part II, addressed to policy makers, discusses the various concepts, issues, factors, and methods to consider when setting objectives, priorities, and strategies for educational adaptation and expansion. Part III, addressed to practitioners, treats the implementation of educational policy, planning, and programs and projects. Following a discussion of various management and educational delivery issues, the special needs of underserved marginal groups are outlined and suggestions for institutional improvement are made. In part IV, addressed to donors, the implications for international cooperation are examined. (MLH)
