Agricultural and rural development policy in Latin America : new directions and new challenges by Alain De Janvry( Book )
10 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 137 libraries worldwide
This study analyzes the significance of new economic context in Latin America and the Caribbean for the design of policies for the agricultural sector. In addition, it analyzes and assesses recent trends in agricultural development policy in Latin America, to identify and synthesize new policy directions, and to highlight emerging challenges and avenues for policy innovation. The main conclusion of the study is that Latin American agricultural and rural development policy is at a turning point that will require bold new initiatives to improve the production performance of agriculture, reduce rural poverty, protect the natural resource base of the sector and ensure the political sustainability of economic growth. This will require a pro-active set of interventions designed at restoring the specificity of sectoral agricultural policy while maintaining consistency with the macro reforms.--Publisher's description
Poverty, inequality, and development : essays in honor of Erik Thorbecke by Alain De Janvry( Book )
23 editions published between 2006 and 2010 in English and held by 135 libraries worldwide
Traditionally, there have been two strands in the analysis of poverty, inequality and development - a micro strand that focuses on individual behavior, welfare economics and the measurement of inequality and poverty; and a macro strand that analyzes economy-wide policies and the role of institutions. This unique volume brings together both strands in a series of essays written by leading experts in the field of economic development. Topics include measurement issues, micro-behavior determinants of poverty outcomes, economy-wide models in the SAM-CGE tradition and the institutional framework underlying macro policies. Alain de Janvry teaches agricultural and resource economics at the University of California, Berkeley. Ravi Kanbur teaches applied economics at Cornell University

Technological innovation in agriculture : the political economy of its rate and bias by Alain De Janvry( Book )
10 editions published in 1985 in English and held by 105 libraries worldwide
This paper examines the role of market and nonmarket forces in affecting the rate and bias of technical change in agriculture. It examines the process of generation of innovations and investment in agricultural research and explores, in the context of political economy, the sources of deviation from the equilibrium rate and bias of technical change. It is argued that a theory of the rate and bias of technological innovation must go beyond the analysis of market forces because they explain only a fraction of changes in investment and productivity in agriculture. It is further argued that the roles played by the various actors involved in agricultural research are being redefined as research moves in to the "Post Green Revolution" era. New mechanisms of identification of research priorities, of coordination of research programs, and of participation of social groups affected by research need to be devised to increase efficiency and equity in the research effort

Development economics : theory and practice by Alain De Janvry( Book )
12 editions published between 2015 and 2016 in English and held by 76 libraries worldwide
"Development Economics: theory and practice provides students and practioners with the perspectives and the tools they need to think analytically and critically about the current major economic development issues in the world. Alain de Janvry and Elisabeth Sadoulet identify seven key dimensions of development: growth, poverty, vulnerability, inequality, basic needs, sustainability, and quality of life, and use them to structure the contents of the text. This book gives a historical perspective on the evolution of thought in development. It uses theory and empirical analysis to present readers with a full picture of how development works, how its successes and failures can be assessed, and how alternatives can be introduced. The authors demonstrate how diagnostics, design of programs and policies, and impact evaluation can be used to seek new solutions to the suffering and violence caused by development failures. This text is fully engaged with the most cutting-edge research in the field, and equips readers with analytical tools for the impact evaluation of development programs and policies, illustrated with numerous examples. It is underpinned throughout by a wealth of student-friendly features including case studies, quantitative problem sets, end-of-chapter questions, and extensive references. This unique text aims at helping readers learn about development, think analytically about achievements and alternative options, and be prepared to compete on the development job market." -- From the cover

Efficiency, Welfare Effects, and Political Feasibility of Alternative Antipoverty and Adjustment Programs by Alain De Janvry( file )
11 editions published between 1989 and 1990 in English and held by 40 libraries worldwide
This document presents an exploratory contribution to the understanding of the political economy of poverty alleviation. Usually, governmental decisions to apply macroeconomic measures that minimise the negative effects of adjustment on the poor, or to implement programmes specifically aimed at reducing poverty, assume that the majority of the population will support them. While there are many studies on the rationality of public choices, there are very few on the political conditions required for the implementation of anti-poverty programmes. This paper presents an indicator for assessing the political feasibility of such programmes. To take into account the influence weights of each social group, the authors have retained seven elements. Among these are: exercise of economic power, group size and the expectations of gains from the policy.Taking as an example alternative policies in India and Ecuador, the authors show that coalitions comprising a majority of non-poor will

Local electoral incentives and decentralized program performance by Alain De Janvry( Book )
10 editions published in 2010 in English and German and held by 10 libraries worldwide
This paper analyzes how electoral incentives affected the performance of a major decentralized conditional cash transfer program intended on reducing school dropout rates among children of poor households in Brazil. We show that while this federal program successfully reduced school dropout by 8 percentage points, the program's impact was 36 percent larger in municipalities governed by mayors who faced reelection possibilities compared to those with lame-duck mayors. First term mayors with good program performance were much more likely to get re-elected. These mayors adopted program implementation practices that were not only more transparent but also associated with better program outcomes
