WORLD DEvELOPMENT REPORT 2012
Gender Equality and Development
The World Development Report 2012: Gender Equality and Development will focus on the evolution of gender equality across the world in the context of the development process. The report will consider gender equality as a core development goal in itself, and will argue that gender equality matters for the pace of development. Improvements in gender equality can generate gains in economic efficiency and improvements in other development outcomes. And gender equality has consequences for the quality and representativeness of the institutions a society develops. For key dimensions of gender equality, the report will show that although many women around the world still continue to struggle with genderbased disadvantages, much has changed for the better and at a more rapid pace than ever before. But the report will also show that progress needs to be expanded, protected and deepened. In order to understand why progress has varied across dimensions of gender equality and between countries, the report will look at how markets interact with formal and informal TABLE OF CONTENTS Overview institutions to influence Paperback.

Policymakers and practitioners still face gaps in knowledge both in how gender equality matters for development and how best to incorporate these links in policy design. This WDR aims to bridge these gaps by building upon the growing body of multidisciplinary theory, evidence, and data on these links while highlighting the knowledge gaps that remain.

DOING BuSINESS 2012
New indicators
Ninth in a series of annual reports comparing business regulations in 183 economies, Doing Business 2012 measures regulations affecting 11 areas of everyday business activity:
n n

n n n

starting a business dealing with construction permits employing workers registering property getting credit

n n n n n n

protecting investors paying taxes trading across borders enforcing contracts closing a business getting electricity

Preliminary Cover

The report updates all indicators as of June 1, 2011, ranks countries on their overall “ease of doing business,” and analyzes reforms to business regulation—identifying which countries are strengthening their business environment the most. Doing Business 2012 includes a new set of indicators on the time, steps, and cost for a private business to get an electricity connection. The data on connection services can inform utilities, regulators, and governments seeking to strengthen the performance of the electricity sector. The Doing Business reports illustrate how reforms in business regulations are being used to analyze economic outcomes for domestic entrepreneurs and for the wider economy.

The Doing Business report, which was started in 2003, has become one of the key ways in which the bank and other observers gauge business climate within developing countries...
— The Financial Times

[Doing Business started] as a way to encourage countries to reduce obstacles to entrepreneurship. Developing countries compete to land a spot on the top 10 list of most-improving countries because it is seen as a way to get attention and investment.
— The Wall Street Journal

[Doing Business] has succeeded in putting the issue of business red tape on the international political agenda.

Does Participation Work?
By Ghazala Mansuri and Vijayendra Rao

The idea that fostering citizen participation is central to resolving problems of good governance and development is one that has acquired tremendous force in recent times. It is the unifying theme which underlies many different approaches towards localizing development, whether in the form of community based/driven projects, or the decentralization of government decision making. Community participation in the development process is expected to build demand for inclusive and effective local governance, empower poor and vulnerable groups, improve the delivery of public services, and increase access to resources and livelihood opportunities—particularly for the most marginalized. In line with this, both governments and donors have invested very substantial resources in programs and projects which use participatory approaches to build local institutions.

POLICy RESEARCh REPORTS

December 2011. 200 pages. Stock no. C18256 (ISBN: 978-0-8213-8256-1). US$35.00

Localizing Development examines the conceptual foundations of this approach and builds an analytical framework in which civic participation is viewed as a potential solution to specific civil society, market, and government failures. It then uses this framework to accomplish two things. First, it reviews the evidence on the efficacy of participatory approaches to problems of development. It then identifies the ways in which observed policy choices for inducing participation are intimately shaped and constrained by the historical, socio-cultural, and political context. In assembling the evidence, the authors takes a broad multi-disciplinary view, drawing on the evidence to provide key lessons for policy.

yES, AFRICA CAN
Success Stories from a Dynamic Continent
Edited by Punam Chuhan-Pole and Manka Angwafo

Drawing on the existing knowledge of African development from previous publications, Yes Africa Can: Success Stories from a Dynamic Continent takes an in-depth look at 26 economic and social development successes in Sub-Saharan African countries—twenty from individual countries and six that cut across the region. These stories manifest at the project, provincial, sub-national, national, or regional level and across themes, programs, and sectors. The book aims to address how Sub-Saharan African countries have overcome major development challenges. The main components of each case study include: (i) a description of the achievement and the elements that qualify the outcome as successful; (ii) an assessment of the main policies, interventions, actions, and other factors that contributed to the positive outcome; (iii) a presentation of the lessons learned and the contribution to the discourse on African development; and (iv) insights on the usability or applicability of the achievement in terms of the potential for scaling up the interventions and actions.

June 2011. 580 pages. Stock no. C18745 (ISBN: 978-0-8213-8745-0). US$49.95

Individual case studies also examine the role of the key stakeholders—the government, donors, or private investors—in facilitating and promoting the achievement. The studies are classified into four categories: overcoming or avoiding massive government failure, rebuilding or creating a government, rationalizing government involvement in markets, and listening to the people.

The positive contribution of tertiary education is increasingly recognized as not limited to middleincome and advanced countries, since it applies equally to low-income economies. Tertiary education can help countries become more globally competitive by developing a skilled, productive, and flexible labor force and by creating, applying, and spreading new ideas and technologies. Research universities are reckoned among the central institutions of the 21st century knowledge economies. This book extends the analysis of the framework presented in The Challenge of Establishing World-Class Universities (Salmi 2009) and by examining the recent experience of 11 universities in nine countries that have grappled with the challenges of building successful research institutions in difficult circumstances and learning from the lessons of these experiences.

For a region with high educational attainment, a shortage of skills in Europe and Central Asia has emerged as one of the most important constraints to growth. This book argues that generating more of the right skills requires a fundamental change of approach in the education systems in the region so that they aim for, and deliver, higher quality education for the vast majority of students (“not just diplomas but skills”). It recommends greater focus on the quality of education and measuring what students actually learn, as well as bigger emphasis on incentives to produce better learning results.

Over the coming decades, the supply of electric power will need to expand to meet the growing demand for electricity, but how the production and use of electricity develops will have broad ramifications for the diverse economies and societies of Latin America and the Caribbean. This book discusses the critical issues for the power sector in the region considering a baseline scenario to 2030. Among these issues are the demand for electricity, the total new supply of electric-generating capacity needed, and the technology and fuel mix of the generating capacity. It will be of particular interest to policy makers, power sector planners and stakeholders.

A Review of the International Legal Dimensions
By Siobhan McInerney-Lankford, Mac Darrow, and Lavanya Rajamani
WORLD BANk STuDIES

This study analyzes the impacts of the financial crisis on power sectors in five countries in the region: Armenia, Kyrgyz Republic, Romania, Serbia and Ukraine. Before the financial crisis, these countries faced expected power shortages as a result of large investment gaps. With the financial crisis, GDP dropped, leading to a drop in demand for electricity. The drop in demand created a window of opportunity for meeting investment needs, but the crisis has limited the sources of financing available to the sector. In the post-crisis period, the study concludes that policymakers need to prioritize public spending and create a legal and regulatory environment more conducive to private investment.

This handbook is designed to train the staff and officers of banks in all aspects of Anti-Money Laundering and Combating the Financing of Terrorism (AML/CFT) internal control. It draws on the expertise of AML/CFT specialists from across the spectrum.

The financial systems of Latin America and the Caribbean (LAC) have been widely resilient to the global financial crisis, which reflects strong progress in both macroeconomic management and prudential oversight. However, the current juncture provides a unique tapestry upon which this book examines several key questions and challenges looking forward. Does LAC continue to underperform on some key financial development indicators and, if so, why? How can LAC’s financial systems contribute more effectively to the region’s welfare and growth? How can LAC secure the benefits of deepening financial development while avoiding the fault lines that recently burst to the surface in other parts of the world?

DRAINING DEvELOPMENT?
The sources, consequences, and control of flows of illicit funds from developing countries
Edited by Peter Reuter

A growing concern among those interested in economic development is the realization that hundreds of billions of dollars are illicitly flowing out of developing countries to tax havens and other financial centers in the developed world. The chapters by authors from a variety of backgrounds, including criminologists and practicing lawyers as well as economists, examine many dimensions of the phenomenon, such as the political economy of the issue, the contribution of major illegal markets, and the corporate role in the phenomenon. This title assesses the dynamics of these illicit flows, much of which is from corruption and tax evasion.

Two key policy goals in the health sector are equity and financial protection. New methods, data, and powerful computers have led to a surge of interest in quantitative analysis that permits monitoring progress toward these objectives, and comparisons across countries. ADePT is a new computer program that streamlines and automates such work, ensuring that results are genuinely comparable and allowing them to be produced with a minimum of programming skills. This book provides a step-by-step guide to the use of ADePT for quantitative analysis of equity and financial protection in the health sector. It also gives the reader an accessible guide to the concepts and methods used by the software, as well as more detailed technical explanations.

hOW GOvERNMENTS CAN ENGAGE ThE PRIvATE SECTOR TO IMPROvE hEALTh IN AFRICA
Healthy Partnerships
Since the private health sector is an important, and often dominant, provider of health services in Sub-Saharan Africa, it is the job of governments as the stewards of the health system to engage with it. This Report presents newly collected data on how and how effectively each country in the Africa region is engaging the respective private health sectors; and how the engagement compares across the region.

The East Asia and Pacific (EAP) region is characterized by wide variations in the types of health financing systems. The continued high prevalence of communicable diseases coupled with the rapid population aging place EAP financing systems under pressure. The basic premise of this book is that health systems need to generate sustainable, adequate financing for health so as to ensure that health outcomes are optimized and financial protection is guaranteed. It reviews best practices and remaining challenges with regard to each of the functions of health financing across EAP countries

ExPORTING SERvICES
A Developing Country Perspective
Edited by Arti Grover Goswami, Aaditya Mattoo, and Sebastian Saez

The services sector is key to economic growth, competitiveness, and poverty alleviation. In addition, services exports have become an important part of export diversification strategies for some developing countries. This book aims at identifying factors that helped developing countries succeed in exporting services and provides lessons for others. It focuses on how developing countries succeeded in increasing key services exports and the strategies that were successful for services exports as well as those that did not deliver the expected results. It is for trade specialists and policymakers interested in improving their understanding of the fundamentals as well as specific factors that influenced services exports performance, and will be a useful tool for governments to design successful trade and promotion strategies, as well as sound domestic policy reforms in the service sector.

For countries as diverse as China and Mauritius, Special Economic Zones (SEZs) have been a powerful tool to attract foreign investment, promote export-oriented growth, and generate employment; for many others, the results have been less than encouraging.

It covers some of the emerging issues and challenges in SEZs – including upgrading, regional integration, WTO compliance, innovation, the environment, and gender issues – with practical case examples from SEZ programs in developing countries.

New Trends and Opportunities for Developing Countries
Edited by Olivier Cattaneo, Michael Engman, Sebastián Sáez, and Robert M.

It looks at both the effects of increased imports and exports, and provides concrete examples of developing country approaches that have either succeeded or failed to maximize the benefits and minimize the risks of opening. It is designed for non-trade specialists to understand how trade can help improve access to key services in developing countries, and for trade specialists to understand the specific characteristics of each individual sector. It will be a useful tool for governments to design successful trade opening or promotion strategies, and for the private sector and consumers to advocate sound domestic policy reforms accompanying an offensive trade agenda.

Preliminary Cover

ThE POLITICAL ECONOMy OF DECENTRALIzATION REFORMS
Implications for Aid Effectiveness
By Kent Eaton, Kai-Alexander Kaiser, and Paul J. Smoke

This book is motivated by the emerging rehabilitation of industrial policies as a tool for supporting economic transformation and high rates of growth in developing countries. It first examines the “how” of industrial policy in the public sectors of ten non-Latin American countries in Asia, Europe, and Oceania that have been successful in promoting economic catch-up with rich countries, or have performed better than Latin American countries with similar resource endowments. The book defines“10+1” generic First Principles for the use, design, and execution of modern industrial policies, and then examines the experiences of nine Latin American and Caribbean governments against these First Principles. The authors identify large gaps in the organizational and operational effectiveness of their public sectors, and suggest ways to close these gaps.
LATIN AMERICAN DEvELOPMENT FORuM

This volume offers a guide to examining the motives that drive politicians to transfer resources and functions to lower levels of government and lead bureaucrats to support or oppose reform at various stages of the decentralization process.

GROWING OLD IN AN OLDER BRAzIL
Implications of Population Aging on Growth, Poverty, Public Finance and Service Delivery
By Michele Gragnolati, Ole Hagen Jorgensen, Romero Rocha, and Anna Fruttero

This book shows that recent reforms have expanded social protection to the most vulnerable groups in Latin America and the Caribbean (LAC) but the coverage of contributory social insurance has stagnated, creating a two-tier, fragmented system. It proposes a strategy for improving the coherence of the social protection system and expanding the coverage and adequacy of benefits to all citizens, while avoiding perverse incentives to reduce work and savings, seek informality, or increase the costs of service provision. To turn the right to social protection into a reality for all in LAC, transparent, progressive subsidies should be used to help low-income workers access contributory social insurance. At the same time, targeted safety net programs should avoid creating disincentives to work or save and do more to promote human capital investment and labor market opportunities.

While poverty has fallen dramatically in China since the start of reforms, there are concerns that the rural elderly may not be benefiting from growth to the same extent as young people and the urban elderly. This book provides empirical analysis of the welfare and living conditions of the rural elderly in China since the early 1990s, and finds a solid case for greater public intervention. It then examines the evolution of the rural pension system over the past two decades, examining the implementation experience and options for strengthening old age protection.

uRBAN DEvELOPMENT SySTEMS OF CITIES
Harnessing Urbanization for Growth and Poverty Alleviation
Urbanization is a defining phenomenon of this century and the developing world is where this demographic transformation is taking place. Over 90 percent of urban growth is now occurring in the developing world and nearly two billion people will become urban residents in the next twenty years. This reality makes the World Bank’s Urban and Local Government Strategy presented in this book both relevant and compelling. The new strategy, structured around five thematic areas, suggests ways for developing countries to maximize the benefits of urbanization while avoiding the congestion costs. It delves into new programmatic approaches to urban poverty while embracing the challenge of the climate change agenda.

A WORkBOOk ON PLANNING FOR uRBAN RESILIENCE IN ThE FACE OF DISASTERS
Adapting Experiences from Vietnam to Other Cities
This Workbook offers a step-by-step guide for city officials in proactively planning for natural disasters and climate change impacts. It is based on learning from three cities in Vietnam—Ha Noi, Can Tho, and Dong Hoi—that developed Local Resilience Action Plans (LRAPs) containing a set of prioritized actions, related to both infrastructure as well as policy/ regulatory and socioeconomic actions. These LRAPs are based on vulnerability and risks assessments, a gaps analysis drawing on an inventory of planned investments and policy changes, and multistakeholder priority setting. The on-the-ground learning from these pilot cities in Vietnam has paved the way for cities in China, Indonesia, and the Philippines to embark on similar processes. This Workbook is a complement to the best-selling Climate Resilient Cities: A Primer on Reducing Vulnerabilities to Disasters (2009).
