The responsibility to protect report of the International Commission on Intervention and State Sovereignty by International Commission on Intervention and State Sovereignty( file )
24 editions published between 2001 and 2009 in English and Undetermined and held by 2,292 libraries worldwide
"This report is about the so-called "right of humanitarian intervention": the question of when, if ever, it is appropriate for states for take coercive - and in particular military - action, against another state for the purpose of protecting people at risk in that other state."
Fixing health systems by Don De Savigny( file )
13 editions published between 2004 and 2009 in English and Undetermined and held by 2,193 libraries worldwide
In 1993, the World Development Report suggested that directing health care budgets more proportionally toward the local "burden of disease" could significantly lower rates of death and disease. As the original edition of Fixing Health Systems revealed, the TEHIP program provided powerful evidence in support of that hypothesis. In TEHIP's two Tanzanian test districts, for example, modest funding increases and sweeping organizational changes contributed to decreases in child mortality of more than 40%." "Now, this second edition moves beyond the hopeful story of how TEHIP's interlocking web of systemic reforms improved the health outlook in Tanzania. With a new epilogue and preface, this updated volume also explores how the TEHIP example has helped create a paradigm shift in Africa and within the global health community."--Jacket

Large mines and the community socioeconomic and environmental effects in Latin America, Canada, and Spain by Gary McMahon( file )
27 editions published between 2001 and 2009 in English and Spanish and held by 1,795 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

Excision les jeunes changent l'Afrique par les TIC by Marie Hélène Mottin Sylla( file )
8 editions published in 2010 in French and English and held by 1,725 libraries worldwide
Assessing the impact of twenty-five years of action to promote the discontinuation of female circumcision (FGM) in Francophone West Africa, should consider a key issue: the contribution of the digital revolution, and how young people - girls and boys - have been associated. As victims, subjects, objects, actors, citizens, leaders and family and community stakeholders, FGM is for them a matter of concern. Youth, ICTs and FGM reveal gender issues that must be transversally integrated in public, private, citizen and personal development policies. This is the main message of this book, which prese
Comanagement of natural resources local learning for poverty reduction by Stephen R Tyler( file )

Land & development in Latin America openings for policy research by Stephen Baranyi( file )
11 editions published between 2004 and 2009 in English and held by 1,515 libraries worldwide
Is Latin America moving toward a new generation of pro-poor land reforms? What are the real openings and constraints with regard to such policies at the local, national, and international levels? What role is research playing, and what role might it play, in tracking efforts and revealing policy options? This book suggests that Latin America may not be poised for a radical shift in land policy and administration, and that it is home to some worrisome trends and a rich array of initiatives on land issues. Researchers have a crucial role to play in illuminating policy alternatives and monitoring

Genes in the field on-farm conservation of crop diversity by Stephen B Brush( file )
10 editions published between 1999 and 2000 in English and held by 1,447 libraries worldwide
The diversity of crop plants is one of our most important biological resources, and the most important source of crop genes are the fields of peasant farmers in regions where crop domestication and evolution have occurred. Today, however, crop genes are threatened by social and technological change such as human population growth, the use of new agricultural technologies, the development of new varieties, and the commercialization of agriculture. Gene banks have been successful in capturing much of the genetic diversity of crop species, but it is also essential that the environmental systems w

Gender mainstreaming in poverty eradication and the millennium development goals a handbook for policy-makers and other stakeholders by Naila Kabeer( file )
17 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 1,395 libraries worldwide
"In this book, Naila Kabeer brings together a set of arguments, findings and lessons from the development literature which help to explain why gender equality merits specific attention from policy-makers, practitioners, researchers and other stakeholders committed to the pursuit of pro-poor and human-centred development." "Neglect of gender inequalities in the distribution of resources, responsibilities and power in the processes of economic accumulation and social reproduction has a high cost, not only for women themselves but also for their children and other dependents and for the development of society as a whole. This book highlights the interconnections between production and reproduction within different societies, and women's critical role in straddling both, and points to the various synergies, trade-offs and externalities which these generate."--BOOK JACKET
Missing links gender equity in science and technology for development by M Menou( file )
12 editions published between 1995 and 2008 in English and held by 1,377 libraries worldwide
This book consists largely of essays exploring the issues relating to science, technology, and gender, with examples provided that illustrate the differential effects of technology on men and women.

Seven key issues are identified: gender equity in science and technology education; removing obstacles to women in scientific and technological careers; making science responsive to societal needs; making science and technology decision-making more gender-aware; relating better with local knowledge systems; addressing ethical issues; and improving collection of gender-disaggregated data for policymakers. Essay topics include food security, energy development, health, technology assessment, education, literacy, measurement of technology impacts, women in small business, and the gender dimension of information as a transformative tool

For hunger-proof cities sustainable urban food systems by Mustafa Koc̦( file )
10 editions published between 1999 and 2008 in English and held by 1,339 libraries worldwide
The 20th century has witnessed a massive growth in urban populations. In 1990, one-third of the world's people lived in cities of one million or more. As well, hunger and malnutrition are on the increase world-wide, as the global food system fails to satisfy the growing demand of the urban consumer. This compilation of essays, most of which were presented at the International Conference on Sustainable Urban Food Systems, is the first book to fully examine food security from an urban perspective. It examines existing local food systems and ways to improve the availability and accessibility of food for city dwellers, looks at methods to improve community-supported agriculture and co-operation between urban and rural populations, and explores what existing marketing and distribution structures can do to improve accessibility, what the emerging forms of food- distribution systems are, and how they can contribute to alleviating hunger in the cities. Finally, the book discusses the underlying structures that create poverty and inequality and examines the role of emergency food systems, such as food banks
