Entering the 21st century by World Bank( Book )

17 editions published between 1998 and 2000 in English and held by 353 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This report, the twenty-second in the annual series, addresses the changing development landscape of the early 21st century, particularly the broad pragmatism that moves beyond economic growth to encompass important social goals--reduced poverty, improved quality of life, enhanced opportunities for better education and health, and more. Experience teaches that sustainable progress towards these goals requires integrated implementation and that progress must be firmly anchored in processes that are open, participatory, and inclusive. The report focuses on two clusters of change--globalization and localization--recognizing them as forces that bring new opportunities but also raise new or greater challenges in terms of economic and political instability. Containing this instability and providing an environment that will help implement a development agenda will be major institutional challenges. The discussion focuses on three main aspects of globalization: trade in goods and services, international flows of capital, and global environmental issues. The examination then shifts to three aspects of localization: the decentralization of political power to subnational levels of government, the movement of population and of economic energy toward urban areas, and the provision of essential public services in growing cities. To discuss the appropriate institutional response, the report draws on an array of national examples and cross-country empirical evidence"--World Bank summary
East Asia : recovery and beyond by World Bank( Book )

5 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 326 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"East Asia: Recovery and Beyond analyzes the dynamics of recovery and asks three questions: Is the recovery built on a solid foundation? Can the recovery be converted into a new era of high growth to rival the miracle years? Has the crisis permanently changed the region's development strategy and its institutional underpinnings?" "Aimed at an audience including the international community, policymakers in the region, the business community, and academics, this study provides a synthesis of recent work, incorporating selected pieces of analytical work and a progress report on the key elements of concern to the Bank. It offers suggestions for actionable policies for regional and local actors and, by opening up questions that cannot be answered, establishes a research agenda for the future."--Jacket

Large mines and the community : socioeconomic and environmental effects in Latin America, Canada, and Spain by Gary McMahon( Book )

7 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 207 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"For centuries, communities have been founded or shaped based upon their access to natural resources and today, in our globalizing world, major natural resource developments are spreading to more remote areas. Mining operations are a good example: they have a profound impact on local communities and are often the first industry in a remote region. However, whereas an enormous amount has been written about the macroeconomic effects of the mining industry, there has been practically no in-depth analysis of the comprehensive effects of large mines on their host communities, especially in developing countries." "In this book, researchers from Bolivia, Chile, and Peru present and analyze the environmental, cultural, and socioeconomic effects of large mining operations in their respective countries, as well as the processes that led to the observed effects. The book also presents a case study of the longest continually operating mine in the world, the Almaden mercury mine in Spain, and an overview of the experience of mining communities in Canada, one of the most important mining countries of the 20th century. A synthesis chapter draws together recommendations for best practice, intended to provide guidance to communities, companies, and governments for future and ongoing mining and other natural resource developments." "Interested readers will include individuals involved in local community development (including those in nongovernmental, bilateral, and multilateral agencies), mining company officials, staff of government mining and development agencies, and academics and researchers in economic, social, environmental, and natural resource issues."--Jacket

The Greening of Economic Policy Reform Volume II Case Studies by Jeremy J Warford( Book )

4 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report, in two volumes, addresses environmental impacts stemming from economy-wide policy reforms, and seeks to clarify the nature of the economic, physical, institutional, and cultural aspects of their relationship. Volume 1 summarizes the case studies and synthesizes their key principles. Volume 2 explores the case studies in full length. They reflect a wide range of country situations and environmental problems. Pollution issues are addressed, such as air quality and energy use in Poland and Sri Lanka, while a variety of natural resource-related issues are covered in the other studies:deforestation and land degradation in Costa Rica; migration and deforestation in the Philippines; agricultural land degradation due to overgrazing in Tunisia, fertility losses due to extension of cultivation areas in Ghana; water resource depletion in Morocco; and wildlife management in Zimbabwe. The case studies also use a variety of analytical methods to illustrate the different approaches to identifying the environmental implications of economy-wide reforms. These methods range from tracing the links between economic incentives and resource use through direct observation, to relying on more complex economic modeling of policies and their environmental effects. In all the studies, however, the analytical approach uniformly requires identifying key environmental concerns and relating them to the agenda of priority sectoral and macroeconomic reforms
