Territorios y empresas : aproximación al desarrollo de las regiones en Paraguay by Belén Servín( Book )

3 editions published in 2018 in Spanish and held by 13 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This study attempts to characterize the productive, business and socio-economic environment of the departments of Paraguay. Through these elements, the development levels of each of the departments are determined, which, together with their productive specializations, serve to configure territorial regions in the country. Five regions identified in this work: Metropolitan Region, Dynamic Border Region, Less Dynamic Border Region, Transition Economy Region and Takeoff Economy Region. The study demonstrates the asymmetries between each of the regions, both in terms of employment and productive conformation, business mass, as well as in terms of their socio-economic environment that indicates the degree of vulnerability of regions and departments in terms of income, poverty, labor informality and qualification of human resources. Several public policy recommendations are also derived from the analysis of the territories of Paraguay, conducted in this study
The Transformation of Research in the South : Policies and outcomes by Rigas Arvanitis( )

1 edition published in 2020 in English and held by 13 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Profound transformations are affecting the research systems around the world. We witness the emergence of new or restructured organizations to steer public research or promote innovation, new programmatic directions within these organizations, increased funding dedicated to research in academic settings, and new domestic and international partnerships and collaborations. A multiplicity of organizations and funding sources have appeared, creating a complex web where resources circulate along with knowledge in ways that are reshaping research systems in the South. This book gathers a large sample of these changes presented during a symposium organized by IDRC, IRD, IFRIS, and OECD, seeking to better understand their institutional, political and economic drivers. These cases document the building of scientific capacity and the broader use of results from scientific research and presents lessons for public policy. A large variety of case studies of specific research organizations and comparative analysis of the wider research system are presented in Asia, Africa, and Latin America

Comercio y pobreza en el Paraguay : el caso de una cadena de valor agroindustrial by Fernando Masi( )

1 edition published in 2010 in Spanish and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

En América Latina y en el mundo, la pobreza tiene un rostro predominantemente rural. De los pobres en el planeta, el 82% pertenece a áreas rurales y la gran mayoría (86%) de estos pobladores rurales se desempeña como agricultor (World Bank 2007). Al mismo tiempo, y de acuerdo a datos de FAOSTAT el comercio global en bienes agrícolas experimenta un crecimiento mayor al 100% entre 1991 y 2006, alcanzando una cifra de 721 mil millones de dólares. Aparentemente, existen amplias oportunidades para aliviar la pobreza a través del comercio exterior, si se diera una concentración en el intercambio a partir de industrias y actividades que tienen una alta participación de la población con mayores necesidades, tales como son los casos de la agricultura y la industria de alimentos. Si bien el conocimiento académico sobre comercio y crecimiento considera que la liberalización comercial puede ser una herramienta importante para combatir la pobreza, existen pocos estudios que específicamente se cuestionan qué efectos tiene la inserción de los pequeños agricultores en las cadenas productivas globales en relación a la pobreza rural. Este estudio apunta a evaluar esta pregunta a través del examen de un caso exitoso de conformación de una cadena productiva de jugos en Paraguay, con la participación de una empresa exportadora. La primera parte del estudio hace consideraciones sobre el debate entre comercio y pobreza en la literatura, al mismo tiempo de analizar brevemente la estructura productiva del Paraguay y sus niveles de pobreza, para luego indicar las principales hipótesis de la investigación. En la segunda parte, se describe, en forma resumida, la conformación de la cadena de valor agro-industrial y los factores de éxito de esta conformación. La tercera parte aborda los principales hallazgos de los efectos de la pertenencia de pequeños productores agrícolas a una cadena de valor sobre los ingresos familiares de estos productores, sobre las condiciones de pobreza de esos mismos productores y los efectos indirectos sobre los ingresos de la comunidad rural. Finalmente se arriban a conclusiones y recomendaciones de política
The English-as-a-Second-Language Child's Learning of Grammar and Syntax by Belin Servin( Book )

2 editions published in 1976 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The amount of time that should be spent on explicit teaching of language patterns and structure is an issue among second language teachers. Those who believe that language learning is a developmental process feel that there is no sense in teaching grammar and syntax explicitly since the learner can be expected to acquire these skills as he organizes the new linguistic system. On the other hand, those who believe that language learning is habit formation feel that first language habits carry over into the second language, and, therefore, the patterns of the new language must be drilled until they become habit. An analysis of syntactic errors made by children learning a second language provides knowledge about the processes involved in second language acquisition. Methodology used in the esl (English as a second language) classroom should be based on an understanding of these learning processes. This paper discusses both theories of second language learning. The hypothesis that forms the framework for this study is that the child organizes the grammatical patterns of the second language by using language-learning strategies similar to those used by a first language learner.

Trade and poverty in Paraguay: the case of an agribusiness value chain by Fernando Masi( )

1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

We propose a methodology involving surveys carried out among a group of small producers linked to a cooperative (Capiibary) to analyse the link between trade and poverty via the inclusion of small family farmers in a value chain headed by a large exporter in Paraguay, Frutika, to which they sell their output of passion fruit (mburucuyá) and other fruits. The cooperative and the firm are located in one of Paraguay's poorest regions, with a poverty coefficient of 41.8% and an even higher incidence of 46.3% in the rural part of the region. The main focus is on evaluating the impact of the linkage between small farmers and Frutika, the control being a group of family farmers in the cooperative who have no ties to it. The findings as regards the factors accounting for the different levels of poverty and the income effects of participating in the value chain indicate that belonging to the fruit farming chain has a very large influence in explaining why both the poverty gap and the severity of poverty are lower among producers who are in the chain than among those who are not. Poverty falls by much more in the group of producers within the fruit farming chain than among those outside it. Although belonging to the chain improves the relative position of the farmers concerned, it is not a sufficient condition for poor families (which a proportion of these producers are) to be lifted out of poverty. This can only happen if one or more members of these families are also employed as wage-earning agricultural or non-agricultural workers. The findings of the study yield important recommendations for the way in which a virtuous link can be developed between family farming and global value chains
