    The term 'green jobs' can
    refer to employment in a narrowly defined set of industries
    providing environmental services. But it is more useful for
    the policy-maker to focus on the broader issue of the
    employment consequences of policies to correct environmental
    externalities such as anthropogenic climate change. Most of
    the literature focuses on direct employment created, with
    more cursory treatment of indirect and induced job creation,

    Myanmar

    Villagers in Karen areas of southeast Myanmar continue to face widespread land confiscation at the hands of a multiplicity of actors. Much of this can be attributed to the rapid expansion of domestic and international commercial interest and investment in southeast Myanmar since the January 2012 preliminary ceasefire between the Karen National Union (KNU) and the Myanmar government. KHRG first documented this in a 2013 report entitled ‘Losing Ground’, which documented cases of land confiscation between January 2011 and November 2012.

    ABSTRACT:
    "Is there a ‘best practice’ model for the legal recognition of customary tenure?
    If not, is it possible to identify the circumstances in which a particular model
    would be most appropriate? This article considers these questions in the light
    of economic theories of property rights, particularly as illustrated by the
    World Bank’s 2003 land policy report. While these theories have their flaws,
    the underlying concept of tenure security allows a typological framework for

    This paper concerns an NGO intervention in agricultural commodity markets known as Fairtrade. Fairtrade pays producers a minimum unit price and provides capacity building support to member cooperative organizations. Fairtrade's organizational capacity support targets those factors believed to reduce the commodity producer's share of returns. Specifically, Fairtrade justifies its intervention in markets like coffee by claiming that market power and a lack of capacity in producer organizations 'marks down' the prices producers receive.

    The concept of "Green Growth" is a focus of much interest and considerable debate among decision makers concerned with enhancing both nearer-term economic progress and longer-term environmental sustainability. Proponents of Green Growth emphasize not only the need to protect various forms of natural capital to sustain improvements in material living standards and poverty reduction, but also the potential for strategically crafted environmental policies to achieve sustainability at low cost, perhaps even to help stimulate growth.

    This paper discusses short-run and
    long-run effects of "green stimulus" efforts, and
    compares these effects with "non-green" fiscal
    stimuli. Green stimulus is defined here as short-run fiscal
    stimuli that also serve a "green" or environmental
    purpose in a situation of "crisis" characterized
    by temporary under-employment. A number of recently enacted
    national stimulus packages contain sizeable
