Sustaining life : how human health depends on biodiversity( Book )

3 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 1,657 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From the Publisher: The Earth's biodiversity-the rich variety of life on our planet-is disappearing at an alarming rate. And while many books have focused on the expected ecological consequences, or on the aesthetic, ethical, sociological, or economic dimensions of this loss, Sustaining Life is the first book to examine the full range of potential threats that diminishing biodiversity poses to human health. Edited and written by Harvard Medical School physicians Eric Chivian and Aaron Bernstein, along with more than 100 leading scientists who contributed to writing and reviewing the book, Sustaining Life presents a comprehensive-and sobering-view of how human medicines, biomedical research, the emergence and spread of infectious diseases, and the production of food, both on land and in the oceans, depend on biodiversity. The book's ten chapters cover everything from what biodiversity is and how human activity threatens it to how we as individuals can help conserve the world's richly varied biota. Seven groups of organisms, some of the most endangered on Earth, provide detailed case studies to illustrate the contributions they have already made to human medicine, and those they are expected to make if we do not drive them to extinction. Drawing on the latest research, but written in language a general reader can easily follow, Sustaining Life argues that we can no longer see ourselves as separate from the natural world, nor assume that we will not be harmed by its alteration. Our health, as the authors so vividly show, depends on the health of other species and on the vitality of natural ecosystems. With a foreword by E.O. Wilson and a prologue by Kofi Annan, and more than 200 poignant color illustrations, Sustaining Life contributes essential perspective to the debate over how humans affect biodiversity and a compelling demonstration of the human health costs

Assessment of development results : evaluation of UNDP contribution by United Nations Development Programme( Book )

3 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 41 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The ADR for the Republic of the Congo covers the period from 2004-2007 and supported the process of developing the new country program 2009-2013. The evaluation report concludes that the UNDP has made judicious decisions in the selection of its areas of intervention but it is now time to question the pertinence of continuing post-conflict type of activities beyond the current program cycle. The evaluation recommends that the next country program should build upon the demonstrated comparative advantages of UNDP in the Congo, namely its support for good governance, its pro-poor and community development approach, its regional approach to environmental issues and its strong advocacy capability. It should gradually phase out activities directly related to the post-conflict period and peace building should become the underlying theme for most activities.--Publisher's description
Tackling corruption, transforming lives : accelerating human development in Asia and the Pacific by United Nations Development Programme( Book )

3 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

People across the Asia-Pacific region are becoming increasingly concerned about corruption, and governments are starting to react. Hauling the rich and powerful before the courts may grab the headlines, but the poor will benefit more from efforts to eliminate the corruption that plagues their everyday lives. Corruption has to be tacked from the top down and from the bottom up, with vigorous support from the media and organizations of civil society. An international response is needed to counter cross-border corruption in this increasingly globalized world as well
Assessment of development results : evaluation of UNDP contribution by United Nations Development Programme( Book )

2 editions published between 2010 and 2011 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report presents an independent country level evaluation conducted by the UNDP Evaluation Office in 2010. The evaluation examines the strategic relevance and positioning of UNDP support and contributions to the development of Mongolia from 2002 to early 2010. The report assesses UNDP interventions under various thematic areas of the country programme, with a view to providing forward-looking recommendations for the next country programme, for the period 2012-2017. Since 1990, when Mongolia embarked on a transition to a democratic polity and a market economy, UNDP has provided support in a wide range of areas. These have included development of democratic mechanisms and electoral reforms, and capacity development and modernization of public institutions. Persistent poverty, recurrent winter disasters and environmental degradation emerged as critical challenges to the country during this period. UNDP provided support to the Government of Mongolia to analyse poverty, develop an institutional response to natural disasters and initiate innovative conservation projects. The evaluation finds that the UNDP programme was well aligned to national strategies and addressed critical development challenges faced by the country due to the strength of our partnership with the Government. UNDP's contributions were most notable in policy support, which has led to the incorporation of a human development perspective into the country's broad policy framework. Analysis from a human development perspective has been catalysed through a series of National Human Development Reports. The Government articulated a National Development Strategy in 2008 that emphasizes attainment of the Millennium Development Goals. UNDP also contributed to human development through its programmatic activities, in areas such as access to justice, awareness of domestic violence and enterprise development. However, the evaluation concludes that UNDP has largely remained an implementer of development projects that often were not followed up, scaled up or replicated by national partners. Several of our projects demonstrated innovative approaches and led to some tangible results on the ground. But many of these projects were not designed as an integral part of a national effort by the Government or other partners, and hence their impact was limited and their sustainability questionable. The report recommends that for UNDP to remain relevant the partnership with government and people should be strengthened. UNDP should provide strategic support to national efforts and refrain from running parallel programmes and projects. A critical challenge for Mongolia is to reap the benefits from the profits of extractive mining, which are the main economic engine of the country, for human development in the face of persistent poverty and environmental fragility. UNDP clearly has a role to play in assisting the Government and the country to tackle this challenge. This evaluation identifies the strengths of our work in Mongolia and the potential to increase our contribution in the future. I hope that the report will be useful in building an even more effective partnership in the years to come, leading to demonstrable results for the Mongolian people -- foreword
