The Canadian Annual Review of Politics and Public Affairs is an acclaimed series that offers informed commentary on important national events and considers their significance in local and international contexts. This latest instalment covers a year of dramatic activity in provincial politics. In 2007 the economy continued on its remarkable run of growth, allowing the new Conservative government to continue its predecessor’s tradition of presenting a balanced budget while further reducing Canadians’ taxes and increasing government spending. With the opposition Liberals not looking to engineer a quick election, federal politics was both cautious and static. In the provinces, however, the Liberals won electoral victories in Quebec and Ontario, while the NDP won a third consecutive election in Manitoba. The Canadian dollar rose past parity with the American for the first time in almost 31 years, and the country celebrated the 25th anniversary of the Charter of Rights and Freedoms.

2009 Annual Review of Development Effectiveness

Achieving Sustainable Development

'The Annual Review of Development Effectiveness 2009' presents evidence on the World Bank s efforts in two areas. Part I tracks the outcomes of Bank projects and country programs and the evolution of monitoring and evaluation (M and E). Part II examines the Bank s support for environmentally sustainable development compatible with economic growth and poverty reduction. The Bank s project performance rebounded in 2008, allaying concerns about the weakened performance in 2007. As previous ARDEs have shown, project performance has been improving gradually for 15 years according to the traditional measure percent of projects with satisfactory (versus unsatisfactory) outcomes. But IEG ratings of M and E quality for completed projects indicate considerable room for progress. Information to assess impacts continues to be lacking although preliminary data suggests improvements in baseline data collection. Bank support for the environment has recovered since 2002 due to new sources of concessional finance. The outcomes of environment projects have improved in recent years. A growing number of regional projects are addressing the shared use of water resources. New global partnerships are deepening the Bank s involvement in climate change issues. But M and E remains weak: three-quarters of environment-related projects those managed by sectors other than environment lack reporting of environmental outcomes.

Elections dominated Canadian politics in 1996, despite there being no federal election. The fallout from Québec's narrowly defeated referendum on sovereignty the previous year drifted across 1996's political landscape. At the same time, though barely half-way into their mandate from the 1993 Federal election, Jean Chrétien's Liberal government gave every indication of gearing up for another vote in 1997. Sandwiched between these votes, 1996 saw three provincial elections, two MPs leave Ottawa to become provincial premiers, the election and subsequent resignation of a new Leader of the Opposition, and a series of federal by-elections. The by-elections were noteworthy for holding the possibility of displacing the Bloc Québécois from its status as Official Opposition, in favour of the conservative, western-based Reform Party. Featuring essays on parliament and politics, Ottawa and the provinces, foreign affairs and defence, the Canadian Annual Review of Politics and Public Affairs provides a comprehensive account of the year's events. It is unique in its collection and presentation of the year's events, and has long been praised for its excellence.

One of the most crucial but still very poorly understood topics of oceanographic science is the role of ocean processes in contributing to the dynamics of climate and global change. This book presents a series of high level lectures on the major categories of ocean/atmosphere processes. Three of these major issues are the focus of the lectures: (1) air--sea interaction processes; (2) water mass formation, dispersion and mixing; (3) general circulation, with specific emphasis on the thermohaline component. Global examples in the world ocean are provided and discussed in the lectures. In parallel, the Mediterranean Sea is a laboratory basin in providing analogues of the above global processes relevant to climate dynamics. They include the Mediterranean thermohaline circulation with its own `conveyor belt'; intermediate and deep water mass formation and transformations, dispersion and mixing. No other book in the field provides a review of fundamental lectures on these processes, coupled with global examples and their Mediterranean analogues.
