Globalization for development : trade, finance, aid, migration, and policy by Ian Goldin( Book )
28 editions published between 2005 and 2007 in English and held by 800 libraries worldwide
Globalization has been taking place for centuries, moving from the colonization of the inhabited parts of the world to the appearance of nations, from conquests to independent countries, from sailboats and caravans to steamboats, truck fleets and cargo planes, from trade in a few commodities to global production and distribution networks and to the present explosion of international flows of services, capital, and information. This book also helps to shatter a false dichotomy that holds that policies that favor the poor cannot be pro-market. There is an enormous set of pro-poor and pro-market policies that allow for more equal market competition among and within countries, and that ask that policy take account of externalities as much as possible. The sheer size of today's global economy is a testament to the speed of change: in 2005, world economic output total US$35 trillion an amount likely to double by 2030, assuming modest continued growth. In this book the authors provide a comprehensive introduction to key aspects of globalization trade, finance, aid, and migration, and their complex linkages with poverty and development. This book also helps to shatter a false dichotomy that holds that policies that favor the poor cannot be pro-market. There is an enormous set of pro-poor and pro-market policies that allow for more equal market competition among and within countries, and that ask that policy take account of externalities as much as possible

Entering the 21st century by World Bank( Book )
29 editions published between 1998 and 2000 in English and German and held by 386 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
Sustainable development in a dynamic world : transforming institutions, growth, and quality of life by World Bank( Book )
18 editions published between 2002 and 2003 in English and held by 341 libraries worldwide

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
Procurement of works by World Bank( Book )
42 editions published between 1985 and 2002 in English and held by 332 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

In doing so, the report links the health Millennium Development Goal agenda with the broader poverty-reduction agenda.

Non-health initiatives inside and outside the Bank of relevance, such as the Poverty Reduction Strategy Papers process, the Millennium Project; etc are also documented.

Large mines and the community : socioeconomic and environmental effects in Latin America, Canada, and Spain by Gary McMahon( Book )
18 editions published between 2001 and 2002 in English and held by 220 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
