Agricultural and rural development policy in Latin America : new directions and new challenges by Alain De Janvry( Book )
6 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 128 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 )
20 editions published between 2006 and 2010 in English and held by 118 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

Local electoral incentives and decentralized program performance by Alain De Janvry( Book )
8 editions published in 2010 in English and German and held by 2 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
