    Despite its rapid growth in recent
    decades, GDP per capita in India remains at a relatively low
    level by international standards, and the country continues
    to be marked by large subnational disparities in levels of
    well-being. These large disparities naturally lead to
    interest in India’s spatial landscape of potential for
    economic development. Against this backdrop, this paper
    presents the results of an analysis of underlying variations

    Agriculture sector performance in Serbia is characterized by both stagnant sector growth and a substantial increase in agricultural exports. This report describes the reasons for this paradox and its implications for future sector policy. Observed export growth is narrowly based, despite Serbia’s potential to produce and export a range of crop and livestock products. This export growth has been offset by stagnation or long-term contraction elsewhere in the sector. Current agricultural policy is not conducive to more broad based growth.

    This Policy Note looks at impacts of European Union accession on agriculture and rural sectors, taking into account specific sectoral features and policy choices pre- and post-accession. The most important lesson learned from recently acceded member states is that policy choices before accession will largely determine whether the agriculture sector will be able to fully reap the benefits of EU membership, by expanding trade, or will struggle in the face of increased market pressure.

    Climate change will exacerbate the
    challenges associated with environmental conditions,
    especially weather variability and extremes, in developing
    countries. These challenges play important, if as yet poorly
    understood roles in the development prospects of affected
    regions. As such, climate change reinforces the development
    case for investment in disaster risk management. Uncertainty
    about how climate change will affect particular locations

    Many ex ante measures taken to reduce
    disaster risk can deliver co-benefits that are not dependent
    on disasters occurring. In fact, building resilience to
    climate extremes and disasters can achieve multiple
    objectives. These are secondary to the main objective of
    disaster risk management of avoiding disaster losses, but
    identifying and measuring additional co-benefits can enhance
    the attractiveness of disaster risk management investments.

    This paper addresses the question
    whether and how co-benefits, through disaster resilience
    building, can be further promoted. Co-benefits are defined
    as positive externalities that arise deliberately as a
    result of a joint strategy that pursues several objectives
    synergistically at the same time, such as disaster risk
    management and development goals, or disaster risk
    management and climate change adaptation. Of particular

    This paper examines the spatial
    organization of jobs in Kampala, the capital city of Uganda,
    and applies the Lucas and Rossi-Hansberg (2002) model to
    explain the observed patterns in terms of the agglomeration
    forces and the commuting costs of workers. The paper
    suggests that: (i) Economic activities are concentrated in
    the downtown -- beyond which employment is spatially
    dispersed. (ii) Geographically weighted regressions identify

    West Africa’s coastal area is critical
    to the region, home to a third of its people and the source
    of about half of its gross domestic product (GDP). Because
    most of it is composed of mangroves and sand formations, the
    area’s coastline is also highly vulnerable to erosion caused
    by coastal currents and storm surges. Erosion is evident
    from Mauritania to Gabon - and the rates of erosion are
    increasing. Around the port of Lome, for example, Togo’s

    The West African coastline is home to
    major industries, mining activities, peri-urban and
    agro-industry, and tourism, as well as urban and seaside
    residences, all of which generate waste and cause pollution.
    Many areas along the coast also lack adequate wastewater and
    solid waste management systems. As a result, large volumes
    of untreated wastewater and solid waste are dumped into the
    open, polluting the land and water. Water quality studies

    The Zambia Mining Investment and
    Governance Review (MInGov) collects and shares information on
    mining sector governance, its attractiveness to investors
    and how its activities affect national development. It
    reviews sector performance from the perspective of three
    main stakeholder groups– government, investors in the mining
    value chain and civil society – and identifies gaps
    between declared and actual government policy and practice.
