    Across the developing world, public
    goods exert significant impacts on the local rural economy
    in general and agricultural productivity and welfare
    outcomes in particular. Economic and social-cultural
    heterogeneity have, however, long been documented as
    detrimental to collective capacity to provide public goods.

    The accumulation of decent housing
    matters both because of the difference it makes to living
    standards and because of its centrality to economic
    development. The consequences for living standards are
    far-reaching. In addition to directly conferring utility,
    decent housing improves health and enables children to do
    homework. It frees up women's time and enables them to
    participate in the labor market. More subtly, a home and its

    Latin America and the Caribbean

    The Latin America and Caribbean region
    has had impressive achievements in the past decade, such as
    cutting extreme poverty by half and adding more than 50
    million people to the middle class. Beyond the positive
    external conditions, it was the concerted efforts and
    dedication of the region's countries to improve the
    lives of their citizens that enabled these and many other
    remarkable results. The World Bank is proud to be a part of

    Since economic liberalization in the
    early 1990s, India has experienced high economic growth and
    made considerable progress in gender equality in areas such
    as primary education. However, it fared poorly on
    gender-parity in labor force participation (LFP). During the
    period between 1993-94 and 2011-12, female labor force
    participation rate (LFPR) remained consistently low as
    compared to male participation. More alarming is the fact

    Housing matters to the livability of
    cities and to the productivity of their economies. The
    failure of cities to accommodate the housing needs of
    growing urban populations can be seen in the proliferation
    of poorly serviced, high-density informal settlements. Such
    settlements are not new in the history of rapidly growing
    cities, their persistence results as much from policies as
    from economics and demographic transition. Slums have

    Burundi

    With limited land, capital, and a fast
    growing population, Burundi's main asset is its
    youthful population. Its main challenge is also to create

    educational attainment and poor health status, the quality
    of this young population is poor. After more than 13 years
    of conflict ending in 2000, and a period of modest recovery,
    Burundi has the opportunity to stimulate growth. Burundi is
