World Development Report 2006: Equity and Development
World Bank
0821362496
September 2005
Paperback
·
 
Book Description
The World Development Report 2006: Equity and Opportunity presents a social development strategy organized around the themes of social inclusion, cohesion, and accountability. It examines equality of opportunities--a potentially important factor affecting both the workings of the investment
environment and the empowerment of the poor--by building on and extending existing accountability frameworks presented in the 2005 Report.

The Report is divided into three parts. Part I describes patterns of inequality in a range of variables both at the national and global level-incomes, educational achievements, health indicators, power, and influence. Part II highlights reasons why some levels of inequality in the variables
presented in Part I may be too high-whether for intrinsic reasons or because they harm the...

Paperback
·
 
Book Description
Environmental decision-making has long been plagued by uncertainties and a lack of critical information. The data and analyses needed for thoughtful and systematic action to minimize pollution harms and to optimize the use of natural resources are often unavailable or seem too costly to
obtain. As a result, choices are made on the basis of generalized observations and best guesses, or worse yet, rhetoric or emotion.
Environmental Performance Measurement: The Global Report 2001-2002 presents a new approach to environmental decision-making based on facts and analytic rigor. It collects in one place the largest amount of environmental data that has ever been assembled at the nation-state scale. Presented here
is the first serious attempt not only to measure environmental sustainability in one summary...

Book Description
For over a decade, central and eastern Europe has been at the center of one of the most profound economic and political transformation in history. At the start of the 1990's, the region embarked on an ambitious reform program to depart from central planning towards more market-based

structural reforms achieved in the region has been so substantial that several countries are now at the threshold of European Union membership.

Book Description
This report is about building institutions that support markets which promote growth and reduce poverty. It analyzes the myriad of institutions--formal and informal, public and private--that people build and use to undertake activities that maximize returns and to manage risk in markets. These
institutions range from unwritten customs and traditions to complex legal codes that regulate international commerce on the cutting edge of technology. Some developing countries have been able to harness such market-supporting institutions to improve the welfare of their people, but others have not
yet achieved the same degree of success. Drawing on a wealth of research and experience from inside and outside the World Bank, this 23rd edition of the World Development Report moves toward a deeper understanding of...
