    This paper concerns an NGO intervention in agricultural commodity markets known as Fairtrade. Fairtrade pays producers a minimum unit price and provides capacity building support to member cooperative organizations. Fairtrade's organizational capacity support targets those factors believed to reduce the commodity producer's share of returns. Specifically, Fairtrade justifies its intervention in markets like coffee by claiming that market power and a lack of capacity in producer organizations 'marks down' the prices producers receive.

    In his speech, President A. W. Clausen reviews the economic and debt crisis of the last five years and shares his expectations for the next five years. The World Bank will play a vital role in a successful transition from recession to sustained economic growth. The Bank’s operational strategy rests on twin pillars: assisting borrowers in formulating adjustment programs, and helping mobilize external resources to sustain these programs. Heavily indebted middle-income countries need help to grow out of their debts.

    Africa

    This paper sheds light on how to harvest
    the "youth dividend" in Sub-Saharan Africa by
    creating jobs in agriculture. The agriculture that attracts
    the youth will have to be profitable, competitive, and
    dynamic. These are the same characteristics needed for
    agriculture to deliver growth, to improve food security, and
    to preserve a fragile natural environment. With higher
    priority accorded to implementation of well-designed public

    Egypt

    The report proposes key elements for an
    agricultural export-oriented strategy in Egypt, that would
    build on the achievements of the agricultural strategy
    during the 1990s. Substantial improvements in the
    country's macroeconomic environment, following policy
    reforms - though necessary - have not been sufficient to
    improve agricultural export performance. Overall, while
    Egyptian agricultural production increased during the 90s,

    Latin America and the Caribbean

    The Caribbean region suffers from a high
    degree of economic volatility. A history of repeated
    external and domestic shocks has made economic insecurity a
    major concern across the region. Of particular concern to
    all households, especially the poorest segments of the
    population, is the exposure to shocks that are generated by
    catastrophic events or natural disasters. The author
    develops a conceptual framework for risk management and

    Colombia

    Based on a large survey to compare the
    effectiveness of land markets and land reform in Colombia,
    the authors find that rental and sales markets were more
    effective in transferring land to poor but productive
    producers than was administrative land reform. The fact that
    land transactions were all of a short-term nature and that
    little land was transferred from very large to small land
    owners or the landless suggests that there may be scope for

    In sub-Saharan Africa women comprise a large proportion of the agricultural labor force, yet they are consistently found to be less productive than male farmers. The gender gap in agricultural productivity-measured by the value of agricultural produce per unit of cultivated land-ranges from 4-25 percent, depending on the country and the crop.1 The World Bank Africa Gender Innovation Lab, UN Women, and the UNDP-UNEP Poverty-Environment Initiative jointly produced a report to quantify the cost of the gender gap and the potential gains from closing that gap in Malawi, Tanzania, and Uganda.
