    Latin America and the Caribbean

    Despite significant changes in poverty
    overall in Latin America, the proportion of indigenous
    peoples living in poverty did not change much from the early
    1990s to the present. While earlier work focused on human
    development, much less has been done on the distribution and
    returns to income-generating assets and the effect these
    have on income generation strategies. The authors show that
    low income and low assets are mutually reinforcing. For

    Albania

    This sector report claims that in the
    three years between 2002 and 2005 alone, almost 235,000
    people have moved out of poverty in Albania. Strong economic
    growth and large inflow of remittances are at the center of
    this impressive achievement. However, low productivity of
    predominantly small family farms has put a drag on rural
    growth prospects. Moreover, Ndihma Ekonomike (NE) program,
    the means-tested income support program is small in scale,

    Uganda

    This study was conducted with the main objective of determining the linkages between poverty and land management in Uganda. The study used the 2002/03 Uganda National Household Survey in eight districts representing six major agro-ecological zones and farming systems. Farmers in these districts deplete an average of 179 kg/ha of nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium, which is about 1.2 percent of the nutrient stock stored in the topsoil.

    Bosnia and Herzegovina

    The private enterprise sector in Bosnia
    and Herzegovina (BiH) has been expanding steadily, and
    estimates are that it presently contributes close to 50
    percent of Gross Domestic Product (GDP). The BiH private
    enterprise sector initially developed following the
    privatization program starting in 1999. Under that program,
    the majority of state owned enterprises (SOEs) that were
    privatized were done so using the voucher privatization

    Latin America and the Caribbean

    Indigenous peoples make up less than 5
    percent of the world's population, yet comprise 15
    percent of the world's poor. The indigenous population
    of Latin America is estimated at 28 million. Despite
    significant changes in poverty overall, the proportion of
    indigenous peoples in the region living in poverty - at
    almost 80 percent - did not change much from the early 1990s
    to the early 2000s. Economic Opportunities for Indigenous

    Albania

    This report was prepared in close
    collaboration with the Bank of Albania. This report focused
    on trade, services, and agriculture; however, the limited
    scope of their operations still leaves a potentially large
    unmet demand for credit in agriculture. This report focuses
    on problems related to the operation of Immovable Property
    Registry System (IPRS) and other institutions and the
    formalization of property rights and inscription of

    The purpose of this Independence
    Evaluation Group (IEG) special study is to illuminate the
    scale and scope of Bank support for municipal development
    and to draw specific lessons from the achievements and
    failures of a sample of individual projects. The study
    focuses on three dimensions of municipal management:
    planning, finance, and service provision that figure
    repeatedly in Bank financed municipal development projects

    Bangladesh

    Bangladesh has recorded impressive
    economic and social gains since the 1990s. Recent growth has
    been at levels close to six percent. The country has doubled
    per capita growth and taken large strides toward reaching
    many Millennium Development Goals (MDGs), ahead of many
    comparable countries. Attaining the MDGs calls for
    accelerating economic growth to six-seven percent a year.
    Accordingly, Bangladesh's Poverty Reduction Strategy

    Cambodia

    Cambodia's changing distribution of
    income-related outcomes is consistent with the process of
    transition from a planned to an open market economy, and the
    accompanying growth of incomes. This transformation has
    promoted better resource reallocation, expanded the spectrum
    of gainful activities, and widened the distribution of
    earnings. Aided by robust economic growth and improved
    capacity for implementing public policies, Cambodia has seen

    Mozambique

    Municipalities in Mozambique were
    established by law in 1997 and elected in 1998 for the first
    time, only a few years after the peace agreement. Most
    inherited archaic and dysfunctional remnants of colonial and
    central government systems and infrastructure, and as such
    limited progress was achieved in transforming them into
    functioning local governments during the first mandate
    (1998-2002). During the second mandate (2003-2008), however,
