By considering what helps and what does not, the book presents policy recommendations to make globalization more effective as a vehicle for shared growth and prosperity. It will be of interest to students, researchers and anyone interested in the effects of globalization in today's economy and in international development issues

This revised and updated edition of the pathbreaking report on the global AIDS epidemic outlines the strategic role that government must play in slowing the spread of HIV and mitigating the impact of AIDS. Drawing on the knowledge accumulated in the 17 years since the virus that causes AIDS was first identified, the report highlights policies that are most likely to be effective in managing the epidemic. These include early actions to minimize the spread of the virus, aiming preventive interventions at high risk groups, and evaluating measures that would assist households affected by AIDS according to the same standards applied to other health issues. This revised edition should be a valuable resource for public health, policymakers, researchers, and anyone with an interest in this devastating global health crisis

Entering the 21st century by World Bank( Book )
24 editions published between 1998 and 2000 in English and held by 391 libraries worldwide
"This report, the twenty-second in the annual series, addresses the changing development landscape of the early 21st century, particularly the broad pragmatism that moves beyond economic growth to encompass important social goals--reduced poverty, improved quality of life, enhanced opportunities for better education and health, and more. Experience teaches that sustainable progress towards these goals requires integrated implementation and that progress must be firmly anchored in processes that are open, participatory, and inclusive. The report focuses on two clusters of change--globalization and localization--recognizing them as forces that bring new opportunities but also raise new or greater challenges in terms of economic and political instability. Containing this instability and providing an environment that will help implement a development agenda will be major institutional challenges. The discussion focuses on three main aspects of globalization: trade in goods and services, international flows of capital, and global environmental issues. The examination then shifts to three aspects of localization: the decentralization of political power to subnational levels of government, the movement of population and of economic energy toward urban areas, and the provision of essential public services in growing cities. To discuss the appropriate institutional response, the report draws on an array of national examples and cross-country empirical evidence."--World Bank summary

The report is divided into nine chapters which deal with topics ranging from "Global Problems and Local Concerns" to "Getting the Best from Cities." While the casual reader may not have time to read the entire report, there is a 30-page overview that provides a description of the basic themes contained within the full report. At its essence, the report argues that "development is sustainable if the rules of the game are transparent and the game is inclusive." This important document will be especially relevant to those with an interest in sustainable development from an inclusive and global perspective

Large mines and the community : socioeconomic and environmental effects in Latin America, Canada, and Spain by Gary McMahon( Book )
25 editions published between 2001 and 2009 in English and Spanish and held by 232 libraries worldwide
"For centuries, communities have been founded or shaped based upon their access to natural resources and today, in our globalizing world, major natural resource developments are spreading to more remote areas. Mining operations are a good example: they have a profound impact on local communities and are often the first industry in a remote region. However, whereas an enormous amount has been written about the macroeconomic effects of the mining industry, there has been practically no in-depth analysis of the comprehensive effects of large mines on their host communities, especially in developing countries." "In this book, researchers from Bolivia, Chile, and Peru present and analyze the environmental, cultural, and socioeconomic effects of large mining operations in their respective countries, as well as the processes that led to the observed effects. The book also presents a case study of the longest continually operating mine in the world, the Almaden mercury mine in Spain, and an overview of the experience of mining communities in Canada, one of the most important mining countries of the 20th century. A synthesis chapter draws together recommendations for best practice, intended to provide guidance to communities, companies, and governments for future and ongoing mining and other natural resource developments." "Interested readers will include individuals involved in local community development (including those in nongovernmental, bilateral, and multilateral agencies), mining company officials, staff of government mining and development agencies, and academics and researchers in economic, social, environmental, and natural resource issues."--Jacket
