Export and import price index manual theory and practice by International Labour Office ( )
4 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 722 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
A joint production by six international organizations, this manual explores the conceptual and theoretical issues that national statistical offices should consider in the daily compilation of export and import price indices. Intended for use by both developed and developing countries, it replaces guidance from the United Nations that is now more than a quarter-century old and thus badly outdated. The chapters cover many topics; they elaborate on the different practices currently in use, propose alternatives whenever possible, and discuss the advantages and disadvantages of each alternative. Given its comprehensive nature, the manual is expected to satisfy the needs of many users in addition to national statistical offices and international organizations, particularly businesses, policymakers, and researchers

"... continues the series of national assessments of innovation policies initiated by the pilot Innovation Performance Review of Belarus. These policy advisory exercises draw on the experience accumulated by the UNECE in the identification of good practices and policy lessons in the area of knowledge-based development, with particular reference to the problems of countries with economies in transition. This Review presents the outcomes of an advisory project undertaken at the request of the Government of the Republic of Kazakhstan. It aims to provide a set of recommendations and policy options to stimulate innovation activity in the country, enhance its innovation capacity and improve the overall efficiency of the national innovation system. Close collaboration with the national authorities and other experts from Kazakhstan throughout the project has helped in identifying issues of practical importance and in ensuring the relevance of the Review conclusions and recommendations to national circumstances. The Review will contribute to increase our knowledge of the impact of policies promoting innovative development and to the identification of good practices in this area that could be useful for other countries with economies in transition. The assessments and recommendations presented in the Review will also provide a solid basis for capacity-building activities that could be implemented to facilitate the implementation of the proposed recommendations."--Provided by publisher

Self-made cities in search of sustainable solutions for informal settlements in the United Nations Economic Commission for Europe region by S Tsenkova ( )
14 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 602 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Informal settlements are often characterized as "illegal" residential formations lacking basic infrastructure, security of tenure and adequate housing. This book describes how more than 50 million people in the United Nations Economic Commission for Europe (UNECE) region have come to live in informal settlements and examines the main characteristics of the phenomenon. It also provides policy recommendations based on case studies and initiatives implemented in the region, with varying degrees of success. It concludes that there is no "one-size-fits-all" solution, as informal settlements are the product of complex socio-political processes that differ significantly from country to country and from region to region."--Publisher's description
