    There are 1.4 billion poor people living on less than US$1.25 a day. One billion of them live in rural areas where agriculture is their main source of livelihood. The ‘green revolution’ in agriculture that swept large parts of the developing world during the 1960s and 1970s dramatically increased agricultural productivity and reduced poverty. Many of the productivity gains accrued to smallholder farmers, supported through research and extension services.

    The devastating tsunami has shown in a tragic way the great vulnerability and exposed nature of coastal communities to natural calamities. It also has drawn global attention to the poor living conditions of fishing communities and the many threats to the sustainable use of fishery resources and coastal ecosystems. Post-tsunami rehabilitation offers the opportunity to build back better, improve and make more secure the lives of disadvantaged sections of the population and set fisheries and coastal resource use on a sustainable footing.

    Since the 2008 food price crisis, foreign investors have been acquiring more and more land in poor countries for producing foodstuffs and biofuels for their own use. Such investments have the potential to promote rural development and food security worldwide. By the same token, however, there is the danger of countless small farmers losing their land, of food insecurity increasing in many places, and of social and ecological systems collapsing through pure "land grabbing".

    Since 2009, Oxfam and others have been raising the alarm about a great global land rush. Millions of hectares of land have been acquired by investors to meet rising demand for food and biofuels, or for speculation. This often happens at the expense of those who need the land most and are best placed to protect it: farmers, pastoralists, forest-dependent people, fisherfolk, and indigenous peoples.

    Data from China's national rural
    and urban household surveys are used to measure and explain
    the welfare impacts of changes in goods and factor prices
    attributable to accession to the World Trade Organization
    (WTO). The price changes are estimated separately using a
    general equilibrium model to capture both direct and
    indirect effects of the initial tariff changes. The welfare
    impacts are first-order approximations based on a household

    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

    Since the 1980s and early 1990s, the
    World Bank has been supporting projects that involve
    communities own development. This has been largely
    manifested in the design and implementation of
    community-based development (CBD) and community-driven
    development (CDD) initiatives, with the latter gaining
    increasing momentum in recent years. The purpose of this
    study was to assess the development effectiveness of the
