Globalization and the developing countries : emerging strategies for rural development and poverty alleviation by David Bigman( Book )
19 editions published between 2002 and 2004 in English and held by 258 libraries worldwide
This book reviews the impact of globalization by examining, for example, how changes in global trading rules and regulations, the removal of trade barriers, and the elimination of many country-specific and commodity-specific agreements affect the economies of developing countries. In particular, it studies the effect of these factors on the agricultural sectors of these countries. Part I of the book (chapter 1) is a general background to the reviews of the experience of individual countries. It provides a survey of the debates over the benefits of globalization for developing countries and the merits of the development and trade strategies promoted by the World Bank and the IMF since the late 1960s. Part II (chapters 2-6) examines the effects of the changes in the global trading system and the impact of internal policy reforms in selected developing countries (China, India, Ghana, Kenya and Cameroon) on their economy and their agricultural sector. The reviews focus on the reforms implemented by these countries under their various structural adjustment programmes and their subsequent agreements as they joined the World Trade Organization (WTO). Part III (chapters 7-10) reviews the impact of a number of key changes in the rules, standards, and institutions that govern the global trading system under the WTO Agreements and their effect on the agricultural sector and on public agricultural research. The reviews cover the changes that followed the agreements on global standards for agricultural trade and intellectual property rights, the restructuring of the global trading system for many agricultural products in supply chains that are often dominated by multinational corporations, and the growing share of the private sector in agricultural research. Part IV (chapters 11-15) focuses more specifically on the necessary changes in the role and mode of operation of public agricultural research. The book has a subject index

Geographical targeting for poverty alleviation : methodology and applications by World Bank( Book )
18 editions published between 2000 and 2003 in English and held by 235 libraries worldwide
Annotation .in many developing countries, there are large differences in economic conditions and the standard of living between regions, and even between communities within the same region. In many countries, poverty has a clear geographic dimension, since the poor are often concentrated in pockets of poverty. Therefore, the design of poverty alleviation policies must also have a signficant spatial component. Although development projects are carefully designed and meticulously evaluated for cost effectiveness and benefits, too many of them are not sufficiently targeted geographically. The growing availability and use of spatial data, organized in a computer system such as a geographical information system (GIS), makes it more feasible to analyze the impact of projects in specific locales and to achieve more effective targeting. Geographical Targeting for Poverty Alleviation introduces the basic concepts of a GIS. It also demonstrates how to organize geographic and nongeographic data. In addition, it presents different methods for using the data of the Household Income and Expenditure Survey, together with other surveys and the population census, to provide estimates for the standard of living and the incidence of poverty incidence in different geographical areas of a country. Ultimately, these estimates should be used to establish guidelines for targeting poverty alleviation projects. This publication illustrates different GIS applications for identifying the project's target population, determining the project's spatial sphere of influence or deciding where to locate public facilities. This publication is of interest to task managers, economists, development researchers, and geographers

Enterprise arrears in Russia : causes and policy options by David Bigman( Book )
7 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 20 libraries worldwide
This paper examines the causes of the large buildup of enterprise arrears in Russia during 1992, and evaluates policy options to deal with them. Noting the experience of Eastern European countries, the paper emphasizes that the settlement of arrears through wholesale extension of credit would only achieve a temporary reduction of arrears while inviting moral hazard problems and creating expectations of future bailouts. Instead, emphasis should be placed on measures that instill financial discipline and promote necessary structural changes. These measures should be supported by adequate legislation, effective supervision, and credible sanctions against defaulting enterprises and their managers
