    Sub-Saharan Africa

    Nous n'héritons pas de la terre de nos parents, nous l'empruntons à nos enfants. Cette conception de la relation de l'homme à la terre est encore plus prégnante dans les traditions africaines où "la terre appartient à une grande famille, dont beaucoup de membres sont morts, quelques-uns sont vivants et dont le plus grand nombre est encore à naître". Le phénomène d'acquisition massive des terres a pris ces dernières années, une ampleur effrayante.

    Côte d'Ivoire

    En Côte d’Ivoire comme dans d’autres pays africain, le pluralisme juridique est l’origine d’une crise de la légalité et de crispations sociales. L’accès à la terre est emblématique des difficultés et des différends qui peuvent naître de la coexistence, issue de la colonisation, d’une pluralité de modes de normativité étatique et coutumier en jeu sur un même territoire.

    This 2018 Article IV Consultation highlights that Mali’s economic recovery continued in 2017 amid persistent security challenges.

The 2017 fiscal outturn and the 2018 budget are in line with the program targets and the goal of converging to the West African Economic and Monetary Union’s regional fiscal deficit norm of 3 percent of GDP by 2019.

    Inequality in Bhutan
    Journal Articles & Books
    December, 2018

    As global inequality is dropping, inequality within countries is rising. The problem of inequality is a cause for concern for nations as it undermines democracy and reduces welfare. Bhutan, a developing country in South Asia, also faces rising inequality. Based on the experience of the kidu system in Bhutan, this paper argues that the system is effective in reducing inequality of opportunity. The kidu functions as a welfare system in Bhutan, and is under the prerogative of the King of Bhutan. The traditional kidu system was reformed by the present monarch of Bhutan in 2006.

    Survey of Country Gender Profile (Kingdom of Bhutan)
    Reports & Research
    February, 2017

    International aid communities have recognized women’s participation in development and the improvement of women’s status in the developing countries as a key issue since the 1960s, and the concept of “Women in Development (WID)” has been emphasised as a development agenda in the 1970s. In the 1980s, with the newly proposed concept of “Gender and Development (GAD)”, an effort for “gender mainstreaming” has been regarded as an effective mean for firmly practicing the GAD approach in the international community.
