    Uzbekistan

    Ulster University and the Uzbek Forum for Human Rights has released the first sector wide study on corporate integrity in Uzbekistan.

    The report and associated policy brief focus on the cotton cluster system, a landmark privatisation initiative designed to improve agro-industrial productivity, and address the structural drivers of systematic forced labour in Uzbekistan. State-organised forced labour regimes in Uzbekistan’s cotton sector have attracted significant domestic and international criticism over the past decade.

    Policy Papers & Briefs
    April, 2015

    Public lands accounted for 80% of the country area until a decade ago. As Cambodia emerged from three decades of civil war and internal strife, the Royal Government of Cambodia (RGC) has granted more than 10% of the country area or 50% of the cultivatable land as large scale “Economic Land Concessions” (ELCs) to private companies, mostly foreign owned, in a mostly rigged process. Land disputes have become a permanent fixture in the press and a hot issue on human rights reports.

    The project initially focused on
    building upon the 1998 Registration Law to develop
    registration procedures, and on getting the Legislative
    Reform Office (LROs) up and running. Cost, affordability,
    and quality of services were important considerations. The
    Project benefited from the country's high education
    levels and relatively low labor costs. Since independence in
    1991, the Government of the Kyrgyz Republic has sought to

    China

    This paper is motivated by the emphasis
    on secure property rights as a determinant of economic
    development in recent literature. The authors use village
    and household level information from about 800 villages
    throughout China to explore whether legal reform increased
    protection of land rights against unauthorized reallocation
    or expropriation with below-average compensation by the
    state. The analysis provides nation-wide evidence on a

    Zambia

    Three of sub-Saharan Africa’s central
    economic realities motivate this study. First, agriculture
    is the most important sector in most African economies, on
    average accounting for nearly one-fourth of GDP. Second, the
    private sector is increasingly active in transforming
    African agriculture and economies. By 2030, agriculture and
    agribusiness are anticipated to become a US$ 1 trillion
    industry in Africa, delivering more jobs, income, and

    Honduras

    Honduras is Central America’s
    second-largest country with a population of more than 8
    million and a land area of about 112,000 square kilometers.
    The 20th century witnessed a profound economic
    transformation and modernization in Honduras. Honduras’
    persistent poverty is the result of long-term low per capita
    growth and high inequality, perpetuated by the country’s
    high vulnerability to shocks. First, over the past 40 years

    Myanmar, Global

    Myanmar grew at an estimated 8.5 percent
    in real terms in 2014-15. Economic reforms have supported
    consumer and investor confidence despite business
    environment and socio-political challenges. The economic
    impact of the floods that hit Myanmar from July 2015 is
    still being assessed, but will likely adversely affect the
    main rice crop this year. According to preliminary analysis
    of census data, the areas most affected by the floods are

    Honduras

    Honduras’ recent economic performance
    has been positive, especially taking into account the global
    economic context. Real Gross Domestic Product (GDP) growth
    accelerated from 2.8 percent in 2013 to 3.1 percent in 2014
    and 3.6 percent in the first half of 2015. Growth has been
    supported by improved terms of trade, higher remittance
    inflows and export demand driven by the on-going recovery of
    the United States (US), and improved investor confidence.

    Ghana, Kenya, Mozambique

    This report summarizes the key themes
    and findings from three in-depth case studies of EET

    landscape of programs in each country, and the qualitative
    insights from local EET stakeholders. This report
    synthesizes information from across the case studies to
    analyze the extent to which these countries programs are
