    Global, Laos

    WEBSITE INTRODUCTION: This report presents a synthesis of the main findings from case studies carried out in six countries in Africa (Ghana, Sierra Leone, United Republic of Tanzania and Zambia) and Asia (Laos and Philippines). The findings were disseminated and discussed in multistakeholder initiatives at regional and country level. The report illustrates how poor rural women and men are affected differently by agricultural investments, and demonstrates that they may not benefit equally from emerging opportunities.

    Trade policy reforms in recent decades
    have sharply reduced the distortions that were harming
    agriculture in developing countries, yet global trade in
    farm products continues to be far more distorted than trade
    in nonfarm goods. Those distortions reduce some forms of
    poverty and inequality but worsen others, so the net effects
    are unclear without empirical modeling. This paper
    summarizes a series of new economy-wide global and national

    This paper provides an overview of the
    history of development research at the World Bank and points
    to new future directions in both what we research and how we
    research. Six main messages emerge. First, research and data
    have long been essential elements of the Bank's country
    programs and its contributions to global public goods, and
    this will remain the case. Second, development thinking is
    in a state of flux and uncertainty; it is time to reconsider

    The World Bank Group has a unique
    opportunity to match the increases in financing for
    agriculture with a sharper focus on improving agricultural
    growth and productivity in agriculture-based economies,
    notably in Sub-Saharan Africa. Greater effort will be needed
    to connect sectoral interventions and achieve synergies from
    public and private sector interventions; to build capacity
    and knowledge exchange; to take stock of experience in

    Interest in farmland is rising. And,
    given commodity price volatility, growing human and
    environmental pressures, and worries about food security,
    this interest will increase, especially in the developing
    world. One of the highest development priorities in the
    world must be to improve smallholder agricultural
    productivity, especially in Africa. Smallholder productivity
    is essential for reducing poverty and hunger, and more and

    Recognizing the importance of policy
    debate and knowledge sharing in the field of development,
    the Arab Fund for Economic and Social Development and the
    World Bank (Middle East and North Africa Region) agreed in
    March 2010 to hold joint high-level development seminars
    around issues pertaining to the Arab World. These were to be
    known as the Arab Development Symposia (ADS) and will be
    held on a regular basis, every 18 months or so, at the Arab

    Jim Yong Kim, President of the World Bank Group, notes that the developing countries will have to grow
    at a pace stronger than any time in the past 20 years to
    achieve the goal of ending the extreme poverty by 2030. He talks about the
    need for growth that is inclusive, creates jobs, and assists
    the poor directly. He calls for ensuring economic
    growth in the years ahead that is sustainable and takes us
    off the destructive path of climate change. He focuses on
