ItemDoes forestry have a role in poverty reduction?(2007-09) Hobley, MaryThe paper analyzes critical factors that shape the potential for pro-poor policy, including an analysis of the nature and understanding of poverty to ensure clarity in debate. It unpacks the assumptions underpinning much of the support to “pro-poor” forestry, and then develops an approach that includes examining the nature of the state and its structures, civil and political society, and some overarching trends that enable or disable pro-poor policy. Forest resources directly contribute to the livelihoods of 90% of the 1.2 billion people living in extreme poverty and indirectly support the natural environment that is essential for agriculture and food. ItemEmerging donors in international development assistance : the Brazil case(IDRC / Partnership & Business Development Division, 2007-12) Costa Vaz, Alcides; Yumie Aoki Inoue, CristinaThis report consists of four main sections. The first provides the historical background of Brazilian international development assistance programs. The second presents an overview of the political objectives, institutional framework, operational components, and disbursement patterns of the country’s development assistance. Section three gives a similar overview with regard to research for development. A brief analysis of Brazil’s international collaboration in development assistance and research for development is supplied in section four. ItemEmerging donors in international development assistance : the South Africa case(IDRC, 2008-01) Braude, Wolfe; Thandrayan, Pearl; Sidiroupoulos, ElizabethThis report consists of seven main sections. The first provides a historical overview of South Africa’s development assistance programs. The second and third sections provide an overview of the institutional mechanisms, components and disbursement patterns of South African development assistance, while the fourth and fifth sections shed light on the institutional mechanisms, components and disbursement patterns of South Africa’s aid specifically focused on research for development. This is followed by an examination of the international linkages in South Africa’s development assistance and research for development programs in the sixth and seventh sections. ItemEmerging donors in international development assistance : the India case(India Focus, New Delhi, 2007-12) Agrawal, SubhashThe report consists of five main sections. The first will explore the historical development of India’s transformation from recipient to donor of international development assistance. The second section examines the structure, flows, and priority areas of Indian development assistance. The third section looks at the emphasis placed on training, education and research for development, while the fourth section examines India’s approach to international collaboration. Finally, the fifth section explores the emerging trends and future of India’s development assistance programs. ItemEmerging donors in international development assistance : the China case(IDRC / Partnership & Business Development Dviision, 2007-12) Chin, Gregory T.; Frolic, Michael B.This report begins by highlighting the evolution of China’s foreign aid programming. In many respects, current programs stem from the “Eight Principles for China’s Aid to Third World Countries” announced by former Premier Zhou Enlai in 1964. Chinese authorities have tended to focus on projects that achieve maximum impact both in terms of development and foreign policy. ItemEmerging donors in international development assistance : a synthesis report(IDRC / Partnership & Business Development Division, 2008-01) Rowlands, DaneThis paper reviews the lessons revealed by the country studies of Brazil, China, India, and South Africa, who are referred to collectively as ‘emerging donors’. The studies emphasize the origins, structure, and operations of these countries’ development assistance programs—especially the research for development and international collaborative dimensions of their programs.

Case studies included Guatemala, Jerusalem, Kashmir, Mozambique, Northern Ireland, South Africa and Sri Lanka. A literature review focused on different approaches to trauma and distress, help-seeking behaviour and indications of well-being and resilience. ItemGender sensitive approach to violence against women : building capacity of police and community partnered delivery system(2009) Kumar, Pramod; Dagar, Rainuka; Puri, Sangeeta; Bhandari, Rajan; Institute for Development & Communication (IDC) ItemIntegración de inmigrantes CentroAmericanos en Belice(2000-09) Salazar, AnaEl presente diagnóstico sobre la integración de los(as) inmigrantes centroamericanos(as) eri Belice fue elaborado para conocer la experiencia Beliceña en el tratamiento de la población inmigrante, con el propósito de apoyar y reforzar su proceso de integración en Belice y al mismo tiempo, contribuir en el proceso de gobernabilidad democrática del país. La continua inmigración y emigración que ha conformado a la población de Belice, así como un proceso interno de desarrollo politico y económico en el país, ha contribuido a una dinámica de cambios culturales que conllevan a la integración de varios grupos étnicos, sumada a la masiva llegada de miles de inmigrantes centroamericanos(as) durante las pasadas dos décadas. Desde la década de los 80's la temática de las migraciones e inmigraciones en el país ha cobrado gran importancia por el tremendo impacto que ha tenido la población inmigrante (procedente principalmente de El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras y Nicaragua) en la situación social, política, económica y cultural del país. ItemStrengthening climate change adaptation research : mobilizing and enabling international research partnerships(IDRC, Ottawa, ON, 2007-02) IDRCThe International Development Research Centre (IDRC) convened this meeting to explore ways to mobilize and organize international research partnerships involving Canadian researchers and funding partners. Presentations of both regional and thematic perspectives were followed by discussion of research priorities and the elements and modalities that would constitute effective research partnerships. Participants agreed that there is a range of activities where collaboration between researchers from Canada and developing countries will bring mutual benefits and could facilitate progress to solve some of the most urgent problems that people from the South and the North are facing now as a consequence of changes in the climate. General consensus was that multidisciplinary, action research was a prerequisite to success. This research will be far from easy; it will indeed be scientifically challenging. Canadian researchers have much to gain from interaction with Southern researchers, who have, in many cases, made advances in methodological approaches to this type of research. Important for success are mechanisms to engage Canadian and Southern scientists in discussions of areas of interest and to facilitate funding collaboration among Canada’s major grant-making institutions. Young researchers and students are key resources and will play central roles in the process. ItemPen to paper : sharing stories from the field; a case study writing toolkit [Arabic](2001) Marschke, Melissa J.Writing can be a fun, creative process, especially case study writing which lets you explore more 'personal' stories. However, starting to write is often the hardest thing! Although lots of books have been written on 'how to' write a case study, they are often long and somewhat confusing. The best way to learn to write a case study is to try writing one!
