61. The Arms Trade, Debt & Development
  Friday, November 25, 2005  by Admin
  Poverty is one of the root causes of violence. Many of the most heavily indebted poor countries (HIPCs) in the world are currently engaged in, or emerging from conflict. Protracted conflict inevitably leads to highly militarised societies, reflected in above average levels of military expenditures and large numbers of combatants under arms. Conflict provides lucrative markets for arms dealers, of both a licit and illicit nature.

  Friday, November 25, 2005  by Admin
  Brussels March 1 2000 (ICFTU OnLine) A new trade union law which is due to come into force in the near future gives the government far-reaching powers to interfere in and to supervise trade union activity. The Act would seriously threaten the current trade unions’ existence, as well as their freedom to bargain with employers, says a new ICFTU report on the countrys labour rights, brought out to complement the WTOs trade policy review of Tanzania.

  Thursday, November 24, 2005  by Admin
  This study reported herein shows that the three largest sugar factories in Tanzania, cultivate over 17,000 hactres of sugarcane farms and produce about 125,000 tons of sugar per annum, process over 1,300,000 tons of sugar cane per year. In the process, the factories produce about 40,000 tons of molasses (a good percentage of which is exported) and about 455,000 tons of bagasse as waste.
66. Leading issues on Africas path to industrialization: the role of support systems and instruments
  Thursday, November 24, 2005  by Admin
  The purpose of this paper is to highlight a number of issues that impede sub-Saharan Africas
endeavour to achieve a higher degree of industrialization, with a focus on the role of intermediate institutional support systems and instruments in assisting firms. A list of leading issues and an explanation of problems in climbing the ladder of manufacturing value added across selected African countries are followed by case studies of best practice that enabled dynamic firms to thrive in an increasingly competitive environment.
67. Large-Scale Biomass Energy Technologies: The Swedish experience and its Relevance to Africa
  Thursday, November 24, 2005  by Admin
  Biomass fuels were used extensively in Sweden during the second World War but rapidly lost in importance when cheap oil fuel became available after the war. In the late 1970s,
however, a renewed interest led to efforts that successfully reintroduced biomass fuels in the Swedish energy balance. Today, 18 percent of the total Swedish energy demand is met with
biomass. The Swedish experience can be of relevance to developing countries in e.g. Africa. Three reasons have contributed to bring biomass fuels back into the focus of interest in Sweden.
68. Stability, Poverty Reduction and South African Trade and Investment in Southern Africa
  Thursday, November 24, 2005  by Admin
  Stability, Poverty Reduction and South African Trade and Investment in Southern Africa
P914-Trade_Conference_March2004_Report - South Africa is the economic powerhouse of the region. Its lead in infrastructure, administrative and financial capacity is a result of the countrys historical role as settler colony and a supplier of minerals to the imperial and international economies, and should not be seen as due to the special nature of its people.
69. What does it mean for development - WTO
  Thursday, November 24, 2005  by Admin
  Two issues in particular alienated the developing countries: the insistence, by the European Union and a handful of others, on adoption of the Singapore Issues in the face of overwhelming opposition from the developing countries, and the US refusal to tackle the problem of its cotton subsidies. Some important progress was made on agriculture, but this was lost in the ensuing collapse. This political clash was exacerbated by severe problems of process.
70. The Rural Poverty Trap
  Thursday, November 24, 2005  by Admin
  Why agricultural trade rules need to change and what UNCTAD could do about it. In June 2004 the UN Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD) assembles for its 40th anniversary meeting in São Paulo, Brazil, against a gloomy background for international trade. It is less than a year since world trade talks fell apart in Cancún, Mexico, while in recent years international prices for many agricultural commodities have collapsed, posing a severe threat to rural people who depend on them for survival.
71. Business solutions in support of the Millennium Development Goals
  Thursday, November 24, 2005  by Admin
  WBCSD Focus Area: Development - Poverty remains one of the biggest challenges to sustainable development. The way businesses respond to this challenge, and their ability to generate wealth and opportunities, will prove crucial in the long-term. As a group of leading companies, WBCSD members work within a new mindset, beyond corporate philanthropy, to build inclusive business models that create new revenue streams whilst serving the needs of the poor through sound commercial operations.
72. Agricultural trade, globalisation, and the rural poor
  Thursday, November 24, 2005  by Admin
  In this short paper, I want to reflect on some of the problems associated with emerging trends in agricultural trade under globalisation, and to suggest some public policy actions that might help to resolve them. As in other areas, globalisation in agricultural trade has been marked by continuity in the midst of revolutionary change. Old problems have taken on new, more complex forms. And failure to address old policy challenges has left the rural poor facing the imminent threat of accelerated marginalisation.
73. Promoting Socially Responsible Finance, Trade and Investment
  Tuesday, October 25, 2005  by Admin
  The theme of this African Regional Dialogue is Fighting Poverty through Social Innovations and New Networking. When thinking about this theme, we may ask what we consider to define poverty. What are the indicators of poverty? The concept paper includes as indicators of poverty the facts that 1.3 Billion people live on less than one dollar a day and that the assets of the world 200 richest people are more than the combined income of 41 per cent-almost half-of the total world population.
74. Free Trade Improves Global Standard of Living
  Tuesday, October 18, 2005  by Admin
  Free Trade Improves Global Standard of Living:
Free trade is the unhindered flow of goods, services labour and capital between countries. It is carried out with very little or without government intervention measures that give domestic firms, households or factors of production an advantage over foreign ones.
These include taxes, subsidies, regulations or laws. Regional economic integration (REI) occurs when countries come together to form a free trade area (FTA) or customs unions (CU).
75. Import liberalisation, industrialization and technological capability in sub-saharan africa
