Poverty alleviation through agricultural projects : report on a seminar held jointly by the Asian Development Bank, the Centre on Integrated Rural Development for Asia and the Pacific, and the Economic Development Institute of the World Bank by Emmanuel H D'Silva( Book )
13 editions published between 1992 and 1994 in English and held by 104 libraries worldwide
Of the estimated 1 billion people in the developing world who survive in conditions of extreme poverty, 70 percent live in Asia. The majority of these people live in rural areas and agriculture is their main occupation. Most of the rural poor are small and marginal farmers, landless agricultural workers, fisherfolk, artisans, female headed households, the aged and infirm, and children. The incidence of poverty is highest among female heads of households and children. The seminar on "Poverty Alleviation through Agricultural Projects" provided thirty development practitioners with an opportunity to consider strategies, policies, and practices that help alleviate rural poverty. The seminar discussed four key issues of relevance to policy makers: (1) poverty cannot be measured by income alone; (2) poverty cannot be alleviated through a short-term, piecemeal approach; (3) agricultural projects constitute one of the many means available to governments for alleviating rural poverty; and (4) the role of public sector in poverty alleviation needs to be reconsidered
Diagnosing the Philippine economy : toward inclusive growth by Dante B Canlas( Book )
5 editions published between 2009 and 2011 in English and held by 92 libraries worldwide
The pace of growth in the Philippines is slower than that of many neighbouring countries, and despite increasing growth in the period before the current global financial crisis, domestic investment remained weak, and had a declining share in gross domestic product. Understanding limits to growth in the Philippines' economy and how they may be counteracted is crucial for policy makers seeking to encourage economic development. Diagnosing the Philippine Economy investigates the binding constraints on economic development, by following a growth diagnostics approach. Articles within this collection cover the areas of macroeconomic management; trade, investments, and production; infrastructure, human capital; equity and the social sector; poverty reduction efforts; and governance and political institutions. The studies' findings provide insight for politicians, academicians, and economists into the issues and their potential solutions
National strategies for regional integration : South and East Asian case studies by Joseph F Francois( Book )
4 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 65 libraries worldwide
"Regional integration is gathering momentum in Asia. This study examines the diverse experience of regional integration of East and South Asian economies during the last two decades and offers lessons for latecomers. The global economic crisis is expected to merely dampen rather than halt the pace of Asian integration. Global recovery will give renewed impetus to Asian integration. East and South Asia include the world's largest and most dynamic open economies alongside several least developed countries. Using a set of country cases based on a similar framework, the study addresses an important policy question: how can each country's integration with its neighbors and more distant regional economies be improved? Of the eight country studies, five are from South Asia (Bangladesh, India, Nepal, Pakistan, and Sri Lanka) and three are from East Asia (the People's Republic of China, Singapore, and Thailand). The country cases - which differ by per capita income, country size, and location - provide fascinating insights on the relationship between regional economic performance and strategies for regional integration at the country level."--Jacket
