Standardwerk zu entwicklungspolitischen Fragen: In den Entwicklungsländern leben 1,3 Milliarden junge Menschen zwischen 12 und 24 Jahren - mehr als jemals zuvor. Viele können weder lesen noch schreiben, sind arbeitslos oder in Berufen ohne Perspektive. Sie müssen dringend gefördert werden, sonst drohen soziale Spannungen über die Region hinaus. Daher untersucht der Weltentwicklungsbericht, welche Unterstützung die Jugendlichen benötigen. Werden die Bildungssysteme den Anforderungen gerecht? Wie gestaltet sich der Eintritt in den Arbeitsmarkt? Mit welchen Maßnahmen kann Aids, Drogenmissbrauch und anderen Gesundheitsrisiken vorgebeugt werden? Unter welchen Bedingungen ist es möglich, eine Familie zu gründen? Der Weltentwicklungsbericht ist eines der wichtigsten Standardwerke zu den entwicklungspolitischen Fragen unserer Zeit. Auf Basis umfangreichen Datenmaterials bietet er fundierte Analysen zu aktuellen Themen der Weltwirtschaft.

The allocation of resources and the design of policies tailored to local-level conditions require highly disaggregated information. Data on poverty at the local level is typically not available because most household surveys are not representative past the regional level. This volume aims to promote the effective use of Small Area Estimation poverty maps in policy making. It presents the range of policies and interventions which have been informed by poverty maps, focusing on the political economy of poverty maps and the key elements to their effective use by policy makers. The volume also looks at the future of poverty maps in terms of new techniques and new areas of application.

The evaluation finds that the content of the World Bank s Country Policy and Institutional Assessment (CPIA) is largely relevant for growth and poverty reduction in the sense that it maps well with the determinants of growth and poverty reduction identified in the economics literature. However, some CPIA criteria need to be revised (in particular trade and finance), and one needs to be added (assessment of disadvantaged socio-economic groups). Second, the evaluation finds that the CPIA ratings are in general reliable and correlate well with similar indicators. The World Bank s internal review process helps guard against potential biases in having Bank staff rate countries on which their work programs depend. The CPIA ratings are found to correlate better with similar indicators for middle income countries than for low income countries. This could be because there is more information available on middle income countries, which increases the likelihood of different institutions having similar assessments on them. This could also be because the CPIA rating exercise takes into account the stage of development, which is more pertinent for low income countries, and which also subject the ratings of those countries to more judgment in an exercise that is already centered on staff judgment.

Producing scientific knowledge that can inform solutions and guide policy-making is one of the most important functions of social science. Nonetheless, if social science is to become more relevant and influential so as to impact on the drawing and execution of policy, certain measures need to be taken to narrow its distance from the policy sphere. This decision is less obvious than it seems. Both research and experience have proved that policy-making is a complex, often sub-rational, interactive process that involves a wide range of actors such as decision makers, bureaucrats, researchers, organized interests, citizen and civil society representatives and research brokers. In addition, social science often needs to defend both its relevance to policy and its own scientific status. Moving away from instrumental visions of the link between social research and policy, this collective volume aims to highlight the more constructed nature of the use of social knowledge.

This book explores the tenacity of Iran’s informal settlements against the backdrop of the World Bank’s USD 80 million loan for physical upgrading. Arefi seeks to identify and unravel the distinctive models, policies, processes, and outcomes associated with it, and explains why—despite obvious challenges—informal settlements remain popular in Iran, and also how understanding them in a broader theoretical context helps rectify existing redevelopment policies in order to develop more effective ones.
