Afghanistan : economic incentives and development initiatives to reduce opium production by Christopher Ward( )

6 editions published between 2008 and 2012 in English and Undetermined and held by 28 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report is about how to progressively reduce over time Afghanistan's dependence on opium - currently the country's leading economic activity - by development initiatives and shifting economic incentives toward sustainable legal livelihoods. Specifically, the report identifies additional investments and policy and institutional measures to support development responses that can counterbalance the economic advantages of opium. It analyzes ways to change the relative incentives between licit and illicit cropping and to help enhance rural livelihoods for the poor, under better governance and security conditions. The report puts forward concrete recommendations and the expected impacts on growth, poverty reduction and the opium economy are assessed. The report first briefly discusses the policy context (Chapter 1) and provides an overview of the opium economy (Chapter 2), focusing on how different segments of the rural population interact with it. The report then analyzes the scope for increasing value added, competitiveness and productivity in agriculture (Chapter 3) and for promoting enterprise development and off-farm employment (Chapter 4). The complementary role of further investments in rural infrastructure is examined in Chapter 5, and measures for strengthening governance are analyzed in Chapter 6. In Chapter 7 issues that cut across all counter narcotics efforts are examined. A final chapter looks at implementation, and at issues of prioritization, synergies and phasing (Chapter 8). The recommendations of the report are encapsulated in a matrix at the end of the Executive Summary
Yemen's water sector reform program : a poverty and social impact analysis (PSIA)( )

2 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 17 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This paper presents the findings of a Poverty and Social Impact Analysis (PSIA) of Yemen's water sector reform program. PSIA is the analysis of the distributional impacts of policy reforms on the well-being or welfare of different stakeholder groups, with a particular focus on the poor and vulnerable. PSIA also examines vested interests to assess issues of sustainability and risk in policy reform. Among other analyses, the study builds on the Yemen Country Water Resource Assistance Strategy (CWRAS, World Bank 2005a) and the Country Social Analysis (CSA, World Bank 2006a). The CWRAS had identified the political economy as main constraint to water sector reform. The CSA assessed livelihoods and power relations in Yemeni society, and called specifically for a poverty and social impact analysis in the water sector. The PSIA recommendations, which address the above key messages, will be implemented through the NWSSIP Update and operations
