Most widely held works by Ismail Serageldin
Social capital : a multifaceted perspective by Partha Dasgupta( Book )

43 editions published between 1999 and 2005 in English and Chinese and held by 434 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

""Social capital initially derives from social theory, and from the broad idea that social relationships are resources that help people act effectively"--A definition by the late James Coleman, one of the first social scientists to use the term in the 1970s." "Social capital has since then quickly entered the common vernacular of our discussions about the connectedness of citizens to their community. It remains, however, a concept that is not easily defined. There lies the impetus for this book, which presents theoretical and empirical studies of social capital by a roster of leading sociologists, economists, and political scientists. It is an outgrowth of a workshop, held at the World Bank in April 1997, which was devoted to exploring the concept of social capital through a multidisciplinary forum."--Jacket

Biotechnology in Africa : emergence, initiatives and future by Florence M Wambugu( Book )

4 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 16 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this book, Florence Wambugu and Daniel Kamanga of Africa Harvest Biotech Foundation International bring together expert African authorities to critique various biotechnology initiatives and project future developments in the field in Africa. For the first time, African voices from multidisciplinary fields as diverse as economics, agriculture, biotechnology, law, politics, and academia, demand to be allowed to set the continent{u2019}s biotech development agenda. This book argues that there is a great future for biotechnology in Africa which sidesteps western interests that do not match those of the local populace. In these diverse chapters, Africa{u2019}s political and scientific leaders demand a greater say in how research and development funds are allocated and spent. They argue that Africa{u2019}s political leaders must see both clear benefits and have elbow-room to drive the change required. This is the way that African governments can employ workable policies, suitable biosafety legislation and regulation, and respond effectively to public-private partnerships. Wambugu and Kamanga show that biotechnology has the potential to improve food security and standard of living as well as mitigate the detrimental effects of climate change on the African continent
