Language:English
Pagination:256

Recent studies of the economic growth and development process have emphasised the critical role of human development. For small developing countries the existence of limited natural resources means that emphasis must be placed on human resources development (HRD) in national development strategy formulation. Through education and training (and health and nutrition), HRD can overcome imbalances in the labour market.

This book explores the approaches to this challenge adopted by governments of smaller states across the world and considers the effectiveness of the particular strategies adopted. It also explores the role of labour migration, particularly the emigration of skilled labour, in this process. The book will be of value to national economic planners, labour market economists, and all those who seek to ensure the successful development of the economies of the worlds smaller states.

This publication contains the reports and recommendations of two Commonwealth expert groups considering issues relating to law and information technology. The aim of each group was to identify the essential components of laws needed to deal with technology. The groups sought to ensure that their recommendations took account of the needs of Commonwealth small and developing states. The first part considers the legislative framework necessary for effective e-commerce, in particular considering how best to implement the Model law produced by the United Nations Commission on International Trade Laws (UNCITRAL).

Related issues such as consumer protection, privacy, dispute resolution and general evidence provisions are also examined. The second part examines the specific criminal law issues relating to information technology, with particular regard to the draft Council of Europe Convention on Cyber-crime. The report reviews the substantive offences necessary to combat computer and computer-related criminal activity and gives detailed consideration to procedural issues such as search and seizure powers, production and preservation orders and the interception of electronic communications. Consideration is also given to international co-operation relating to computer crime and other related issues.

Debt Management Series 3
ISBN: 9780850927764
Publisher:Commonwealth Secretariat
Binding:Paperback
Language:English
Pagination:180

Over the past two or so decades the issues of mainstreaming gender in debt and development resource management, has taken centre stage in the continuing debate on improving the application of financial resources, to achieve greater social equity. In response to this debate the Commonwealth Secretariat has prepared this Handbook, to enrich the information available to debt managers, gender advocates and other development practitioners while simultaneously making a contribution to the way forward. The Handbook highlights the linkages between debt and gender and discusses policies and action taken by international agencies and bilateral donors to promote and integrate gender issues in the provision of development assistance.

It suggests effective and practical ways through which developing country governments can integrate gender equality considerations in their debt and development resource management. The Handbook makes recommendations for debt recording systems, such as CS-DRMS, to better track the impact of debt and externally funded programmes on gender perspectives.

New Gender Mainstreaming Series on Development Issues
ISBN: 9780850928402
Publisher:Commonwealth Secretariat
Binding:Paperback
Language:English
Pagination:412

In Mainstreaming Gender in Social Protection for the Informal Economy Naila Kabeer explores the gendered dimensions of risk, vulnerability and insecurity and hence the need for a gender perspective in the design of social protection measures. Her emphasis is on the informal economy because that is where the majority of women, and indeed the poor, are to be found while also being where official efforts for social protection are most limited.

The book will enhance understanding of the constraints and barriers that confine women to more poorly remunerated, more casual and more insecure forms of waged and self-employment, and of what this implies for womens ability to provide for their families and cope with insecurity. Kabeer develops a framework of analysis that integrates gender, life course and livelihoods perspectives in order to explore the interactions between gender inequality, household poverty and labour market forces that help to produce gender-differentiated experiences of risk and vulnerability for the working poor. She then examines and assesses examples of social protection measures from child allowances to pensions in order to illustrate the necessity for a gender-analytical approach. She also stresses the importance of an organised voice for vulnerable and marginalised workers. Finally, the author synthesises the main lessons that emerge out of the discussion and identifies gaps and exclusions in the social protection agenda.

New Gender Mainstreaming Series on Development Issues
ISBN: 9780850927979
Publisher:Commonwealth Secretariat
Binding:Paperback
Language:English
Pagination:248

In this book, the authors highlight the lack of attention to employment, especially informal employment in poverty reductionstrategeis and point to the links between being informally employed, being a woman or a man and being poor.

This is done within the context of major changes in the nature of work related to economic restructuring and liberalisation and the book maps out the impacts on different categories of informal producers and workers, both men and women. Liberally scattered with practical examples, the book draws widely on recent data and evidence for a number of organisations , including WIEGO ( Women in Informal Employment: Globalizing and Organizing), a global research policy and provides a convincing case for an increased emphasis on informal employment and gender in proverty reduction strategies. It sets out a strategic framework that presents important guidelines for policy-makers seeking to follow this approach.

Language:English
Pagination:388

Management of Credit Schemes for Women Entrepreneurs in Africa: A Training Manual arises out of over seven years experience of training and capacity building in the management of credit schemes for women entrepreneurs. Micro-enterprises offer an attractive channel for innovations in investment, especially in the rural and peri-urban areas where the majority of the population lives and which mainstream investors shy away from. Although the focus of the publication is on women entrepreneurs in Africa, the experience contained in the manual derives from a synthesis and an adaptation of experiences in Africa, Asia and other areas of the developing world. Management of Credit Schemes for Women Entrepreneurs in Africa:

A Training Manual will be a useful tool in capacity building through training in initiatives for part-realisation of the Millennium Development Goals. Both the beginner and the professional will find this book a much-cherished addition to their catalogue of pedagogic tools for entrepreneurs - in Africa in particular, and the developing world in general.
