    Kosovo, Europe, Central Asia

    Kosovo is a small and young state that gained an interim United Nations (UN)-administered status in the wake of the Dayton peace accord only in 1999; it declared independence in 2008. Compared to neighboring countries, it is still lacking in its basic infrastructure and its administrative and technical skills. In addition, with the onset of the War in Yugoslavia in 1992 most investment and normal maintenance came to a standstill.

    performance, the status of macroeconomic management and the
    strategic directions outlined in Mahinda Chintana. It notes

    In this paper, the authors examine the
    impact of reductions in barriers to migration on the
    consumption of rural households in China. The authors find
    that increased migration from rural villages leads to
    significant increases in consumption per capita, and that
    this effect is stronger for poorer households within
    villages. Household income per capita and non-durable
    consumption per capita both increase with out-migration, and

    This study assesses the development
    effectiveness of World Bank assistance in addressing

    Evaluation Group (IEG) review of World Bank assistance to
    agriculture in Africa has a twofold purpose. First, it is a
    pilot for the proposed IEG study on Bank-wide assistance in
    agriculture scheduled for fiscal year 2009. Second, the

    Trade policies can promote aggregate
    efficiency, but the ensuing structural adjustments generally
    create both winners and losers. From an incomes perspective,
    trade liberalization can raise gross domestic product per
    capita, but rates of emergence from poverty depend on
    individual household characteristics of economic
    participation and asset holding. To fully realize the growth
    potential of trade, while limiting the risk of rising

    Global, Tanzania

    This paper uses a computable general
    equilibrium model to assess the welfare impact of commodity
    price inflation in Tanzania and possible tax policy
    responses in the short, medium, and long term. The results
    suggest that global commodity inflation since 2006 may have
    had a significantly negative impact on all Tanzanian
    households. Most of the negative impact comes from the rise
    in the price of oil. In contrast, food price spikes are

    Poverty in Kosovo is widespread and has
    remained persistent in the first half of this decade. The
    evidence suggests that poverty is higher among those who
    live in families that are large, have many unemployed
    members, and have low education levels. The poor are also
    geographically concentrated in rural areas and a few
    regions. The main message of this report is that the slow
    and volatile growth was doubly disadvantageous. The first

    The surge in global commodity prices of
    the past few years has presented a tremendous development
    challenge for South Asian countries. The large loss of
    income from the terms of trade shock has worsened
    macroeconomic balances, fueled rapid inflation, and hurt
    growth. Although commodity prices have come down recently,
    the benefits are being clouded by the emergence of a severe
    global financial crisis. The adverse consequences of the
