    Economic, agronomic, and biophysical drivers affect global land use, so all three influences need to be considered in evaluating economically optimal allocations of the world’s land resources. A dynamic, forward-looking optimization framework applied over the course of the coming century shows that although some deforestation is optimal in the near term, in the absence of climate change regulation, the desirability of further deforestation is eliminated by mid-century.

    Colombia

    The growing use of Payments for
    Environmental Services (PES) for conservation has fostered a
    debate on its effectiveness, but the few efforts to date to
    assess the impact of PES programs have been hampered by lack
    of data, leading to very divergent results. This paper uses
    data from a PES mechanism implemented in Quindío, Colombia,
    to examine the impact of PES on land use change. Alone among
    all early PES initiatives, the Silvopastoral Project

    Costa Rica

    Costa Rica stands out for being among the most politically stable, progressive, prosperous, and environmentally conscious nations in the Latin America and the Caribbean region. Its development model has brought important economic, social, and environmental dividends, with sustained growth, upward mobility for a large share of the population, important gains in social indicators, and significant achievements in reforestation and conservation. However, there are a number of development challenges that need to be addressed to maintain the country’s successful development path.

    Indonesia

    The systematic country diagnostic (SCD)
    is designed to identify the most critical binding
    constraints and opportunities facing Indonesia in ending
    extreme poverty and boosting shared prosperity. In line with
    the World Bank Group’s (WBG’s) new country engagement model,
    the findings of the SCD will provide inputs for the
    preparation of the country partnership framework (CPF),
    which will outline the WBG’s engagement with Indonesia to

    Bosnia and Herzegovina

    Twenty years after the end of the war,
    Bosnia and Herzegovina (BiH) has yet to achieve shared
    prosperity for its citizens and approach European living
    standards. The country has been at peace since the end of
    1995, but its development model needs adjustment if it is to
    join the ranks of prosperous European economies. BiH has a
    disproportionately large public sector that dates back to
    Yugoslav times and has only been partly reformed since, and
