Spatial disparities in human development perspectives from Asia by S. M. Ravi Kanbur( )
11 editions published between 2005 and 2006 in English and held by 1,383 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Spatial disparities are a measure of the unequal distribution of income, wealth, power and resources between peoples in different locations. As a dimension of overall inequality, spatial disparities have added signifi cance when combined with regional divisions and political and ethnic tensions that can undermine social and political stability. The accurate measure-ment of spatial disparities and the analysis of their causes and consequences are therefore of particular importance.This book focuses on issues of poverty and inequality that are directly related to the Millennium Development Goals
Poverty and inequality ( Book )
10 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 720 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This volume brings together leading public intellectuals Amartya Sen, Martha C. Nussbaum, François Bourguignon, William J. Wilson, Douglas S. Massey, and Martha A. Fineman to take stock of current analytic understandings of poverty and inequality. Contemporary research on inequality has largely relied on conceptual advances several decades old, even though the basic structure of global inequality is changing in fundamental ways. The reliance on conventional poverty indices, rights-based approaches to poverty reduction, and traditional modeling of social mobility has left scholars and policymakers poorly equipped to address modern challenges. The contributors show how contemporary poverty is forged in neighborhoods, argue that discrimination in housing markets is a profound source of poverty, suggest that gender inequalities in the family and in the social evaluation of the caretaking role remain a hidden dimension of inequality, and develop the argument that contemporary inequality is best understood as an inequality in fundamental human capabilities. This book demonstrates in manifold ways how contemporary scholarship and policy must be recast to make sense of new and emerging forms of poverty and social exclusion

Attacking poverty by World Bank( Book )
7 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 283 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Poor people live without fundamental freedoms of action and choice that the better-off take for granted. They often lack adequate food and shelter, education and health, deprivations that keep them from leading the kind of life that everyone values. They also face extreme vulnerability to ill health, economic dislocation, and natural disasters. And they are often exposed to ill treatment by institutions of the state and society and are powerless to influence key decisions affecting their lives. At the start of a new century, poverty remains a global problem of huge proportions. Of the world's 6 billion people, 2.8 billion live on less than $2 a day and 1.2 billion on less than $1 a day. Eight out of every 100 infants do not live to see their fifth birthday. Nine of every 100 boys and 14 of every 100 girls who reach school age do not attend school. Poverty is also evident in poor people's lack of political power and voice and in their extreme vulnerability to ill health, economic dislocation, personal violence and natural disasters. And the scourge of HIV/AIDS, the frequency and brutality of civil conflicts, and rising disparities between rich countries and the developing world have increased the sense of deprivation and injustice for many."--Http://
The future of development assistance : common pools and international public goods by S. M. Ravi Kanbur( Book )
9 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 242 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Development assistance is beset by two challenges; its past ineffectivenness in achieving the objectives of development and poverty reduction, and the emergence of a range of transnational problems affecting both developed and developing countries. How can aid be delivered more effectively? And how can it assist in international public goods which solve transnational problems? In this essay, the authors propose a twofold framework to guide development assistance: an approach to country-focused aid that would minimize coordination difficulties and enhance recipient country ownership, and a nuanced scheme for the provision of international public goods."--Jacket

Latin American urban development into the twenty first century towards a renewed perspective on the city ( )
8 editions published in 2012 in English and Italian and held by 181 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The 20th century witnessed global processes of urbanization on an unprecedented scale, to the extent that for the first time in human history more than half of the world's population now lives in urban areas. Latin America is the developing world's most urbanized region, with over 75 per cent of its population currently residing in towns and cities. As such, it in many ways arguably constitutes something of an 'urban laboratory'. Although many of its urbanization trends are regionally specific, there also exist clear commonalities with other regions of the world, and much can be learned from the Latin American experience and the future direction it is taking. This volume presents an original collection of studies drawn from a range of disciplines that highlight some of the key issues regarding the changing nature of contemporary urban life in Latin America, and the consequences of its transformation for development more generally
