Community participation in China : issues and processes for capacity building by Janelle Plummer( )

1 edition published in 2004 in English and held by 1,071 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This volume provides a source of information on the key issues and constraints and capacity building necessary to implement participatory approaches in China today. A wealth of case studies are provided by principal Chinese academics and practitioners in forestry, natural resource management, rural development, irrigation and poverty alleviation." "At the core, the book is about strengthening local government as a key player in the development of participatory initiatives. It is an invaluable text for development practitioners, donors, researchers and students seeking to understand the opportunities and constraints for participation in China, and for those working to institutionalize participatory processes in a complex rural context."--Jaquette

Trade liberalization and poverty : a handbook by Neil McCulloch( Book )

1 edition published in 2001 in English and held by 250 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Sponsored by the UK Department of International Development, this text deals directly with concerns that reform may have adverse effects on poverty in developing countries. The first part of the book recaps the current debates over trade policy and anti-poverty policy and the connections between them. The second part explores ten areas of trade policy that are likely to figure in future trade negiotiations and examines the possible impact upon poverty in each case. The authors argue that the poverty impact of trade liberalization is extremely country specific, being pro-poor in some cases and anti-poor in others. However, they believe that it is better to tackle poverty concerns directly (for example, by safety nets and investments to facilitate structural reform), rather than through the continuation of protectionist policies. Given the popular suspicions about trade liberalization, this handbook should make an important contribution to debate on globalization and poverty

Primary aquatic animal health care in rural, small-scale, aquaculture development by J. R Arthur( Book )

3 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 132 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This document is the technical proceedings of the Asia Regional Scoping Workshop on Primary Aquatic Animal Health Care in Rural-scale, Aquaculture Development, held in Dhaka, Bangladesh from 27 to 30 September 1999. The workshop largely focused on understanding the impacts of aquatic animal health risks associated with rural, small-scale aquaculture and enhanced fisheries and evaluating their impacts on rural livelihoods. The workshop also attempted to derive appropriate management interventions to reduce those risks. The workshop was a unique event bringing together experienced aquatic animal health specialists, aquaculturists, sociologists, economists, extension specialists and rural development practitioners in the Asian region. Although quantitatively estimating the overall impacts of disease on rural livelihoods was difficult die to lack of adequate socio-economic information, the consensus among teh workshop participants was that aquatic animal health problems are a risk to livelihoods of people involved in small-scale aquaculture and enhances fisheries in Asia
Municipalities and community participation : a sourcebook for capacity building by Janelle Plummer( Book )

2 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 130 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Increasingly, governments and donors are advocating the participation of poor communities in the delivery of urban services and infrastructure. Yet local authorities responsible for implementing participatory policies often do not have the skills, organisations or resources needed, or an adequate idea of the capacity required. This sourcebook provides invaluable practical guidance for municipal officials, and others working in urban development and poverty reduction, on the range of issues to be addressed in planning and managing cities with community participation. It explains the key elements of participation, identifies common constraints and opportunities, describes the vehicles for moving participation forward and outlines the capacity building needed for municipalities to achieve participatory goals."--Jacket

Stakeholder incentives in participatory forest management : a manual for economic analysis by Michael Richards( Book )

1 edition published in 2003 in English and held by 84 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This manual provides practical methodological guidance for the economic analysis of stakeholder incentives in participatory forest management (PFM). It stems from the concern that poor understanding has contributed to the often weak local participation in PFM, and therefore the limited success of many PFM experiences. The manual will help governments, NGOs and donors identify appropriate interventions to encourage participation. The first part involves an introduction to economic concepts applied to PFM. The second section contains a stakeholder analysis toolbox, with information and techniques on understanding the decision-making context, physical quantification of costs and benefits and participatory analysis and monitoring
The web of transport corridors in South Asia by World Bank( )

1 edition published in 2018 in English and held by 80 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This publication develops a holistic appraisal methodology to ensure that economic benefits of investments in transport corridors are amplified and more widely spread, and possible negative impacts such as congestion, environmental degradation, and other unintended consequences are minimized. It focuses on South Asia-- not only as one of the world's most populous and poorest regions-- but as a hinge between East Asia, Central Asia, the Middle East, and Europe. The book is aimed at politicians, technocrats, civil society organizations, and businesses. It presents case studies of past and recent corridor initiatives, provides rigorous analysis of the literature on the spatial impact of corridors, and offers assessments of corridor investment projects supported by international development organizations. A series of spotlights examines such issues as private sector co-investment; the impacts of corridors on small enterprises and women; and issues with implementing cross-border corridors
