File Biodiversity and Development Handbook by Portal Web Editor — last modified Jun 06, 2018 01:51 PM
The 2015 USAID Biodiversity and Development Handbook is a foundational resource for implementation of USAID’s Biodiversity Policy. The main purpose of the handbook is to help USAID managers and implementing partners plan, design, implement, and monitor strong and sustainable conservation efforts in line with Agency experience, policy, and guidance. A strong secondary purpose is to contribute USAID knowledge and experience to the global conservation community, particularly in designing projects with robust learning components and in integrating conservation and development objectives. It draws from the USAID, partner, and global knowledge base of principles, approaches, resources, best practices, and case examples.

File NIGERIA ENVIRONMENTAL ANALYSIS FINAL REPORT by Rose Hessmiller — last modified Jan 10, 2013 10:49 AM
In 1999, the Africa Bureau approved the USAID/Nigeria two-year Transition Country Strategic Objective. This was approved without adherence to the Automated Directives System (ADS) environmental assessment requirements due to its short timeframe. An extension, until December 2003, of the Transition Strategic Plan was approved in May 2001, with the condition that an environmental assessment now be completed due to the longer term (two to four years) nature of the strategy. This document supports that process by providing a broad overview of threats facing the environment in Nigeria, based on available data and interviews with expert informants within and outside the Mission. Although this document presents the relative severity of the threats facing each sector, these need not necessarily dictate environmental priorities and assistance strategies. Similarly, the opportunities section of this assessment is provided for a broad range of parties who might be interested in addressing environmental threats in Nigeria. Afr - 118/119 Report - Nigeria under USAID Contract No. LAG-I-00-99-00013-00 Biodiversity and Sustainable Forestry (BIOFOR) Indefinite Quantity Contract (IQC) Prepared in 2002.

File Engendering Development--Through Gender Equality in Rights, Resources, and Voice by Stanzin Tonyot — last modified Jan 10, 2013 05:30 PM
On one level, poverty exacerbates gender disparities. Inequalities between girls and boys in access to schooling or adequate health care are more acute among the poor than among those with higher incomes. These disparities disadvantage women and girls and limit their capacity to participate in and benefit from development. On another level, gender inequalities hinder development. Evidence brought together in this report shows this unambiguously.

File Natural Resources and Violent Conflict: Options and Actions by Rose Hessmiller — last modified Jan 10, 2013 10:50 AM
In this book published by the World Bank in 2003, Ian Bannon and Paul Collier editors, discuss how violent conflict can spell catastrophe for developing countries and their neighbors, stunting and even reversing the course of economic growth. Recent World Bank research on the causes of conflict and civil war finds that the countries most likely to be blighted by conflict are those whose economies depend heavily on natural resources. 'Natural Resources and Violent Conflict' first explains the links between resource dependence conflict and then considers what can be done to help reduce the risk of civil war in these nations. In this collection of previously unpublished essays by experts in the field, contributors consider the risks of corruption, secessionist movements, and rebel financing. They also consider the roles played by government, the development community, and the country's population and propose an agenda for global action. Focusing on what we can do collectively to diminish the likelihood of civil war, contributors to this volume suggest practical approaches and policies that could be adopted by the international community - from financial and resource reporting procedures to commodity tracking systems and enforcement techniques, including sanctions, certification requirements, and aid conditionality. A fascinating look at the results of important new World Bank research, this book represents an important addition to the dialogue on development.
File Climate Change and Food Systems: Global assessments and implications for food security and trade by Michael Colby — last modified Jul 09, 2015 02:04 AM
A new FAO publication on climate-related impacts on food systems at global and regional levels over the past two decades. This book collects the findings of a group of scientists and economists who have taken stock of climate change impacts on food and agriculture at global and regional levels over the past two decades. The evidence presented describes how global warming will impact where and how food is produced and discusses the significant consequences for food security, health and nutrition, water scarcity and climate adaptation. The book also highlights the implications for global food trade. Put together, the different analyses in the book paint a comprehensive perspective linking climate change to food, nutrition, water, and trade along with suggested policy responses.
