Large mines and the community : socioeconomic and environmental effects in Latin America, Canada, and Spain by Gary McMahon( file )
36 editions published between 2001 and 2009 in English and Spanish and held by 2,422 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

Procurement of works by World Bank( file )
41 editions published between 1985 and 2002 in English and held by 1,715 libraries worldwide
The Standard Prequalification Document (SPD) has been prepared for use by the Bank's Borrowers and their implementing agencies in the procurement of works primarily through International Competitive Bidding (ICB), but the principles may also be applied if prequalification is needed under National Competitive Bidding (NCB). When ICB is the appropriate method for procurement, the use of the Bank's Standard Bidding Documents (SBDs) is mandatory. For large works or complex works, prequalification is usually necessary, and would be mandated in the Loan/Credit Agreement. Accordingly, the Bank's SBD for the Procurement of Works has been prepared on the basis that prequalification, in accordance with this document, will have taken place prior to bidding. The Bank has also issued an SBD for smaller contracts, for which prequalification is optional; if, however, prequalification is required, it should be carried out in accordance with this document. Annex A of this document explains the reasons for following this procedure, and discusses the advantages and disadvantages of prequalification. Annex B explains the rationale for certain clauses, and provides guidances to executing agencies and their consultants in preparing a particular prequalification questionnaire and evaluating the submissions of applicants

Globalization is a powerful force for poverty reduction as societies and economies around the world are becoming more integrated.

It proposes an agenda for action aimed at mitigating the risks that globalization potentially generates, while maximizing the opportunities for the poor.--Publisher description
