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.

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.

Never before have average people greater access to the stock market. The investor is literally drowning in financial information, loaded with financial techno-babble. This book teaches people how to invest without being dependent on a broker, financial institutions and banks. It allows people to make their own decisions without being stampeded by market trends. This is a book for people who only have a few hundred dollars or a few hundred thousand dollars to invest. The Uncommon Investor explains in detail the methodology used in the investment letter, which is arguably number one in North America, with five year annualized return of 33.9% and 53.2% return in 1997. The techniques are outlined in an entertaining format, as a group of family and friends gather to watch the seventh game of the World Series. Each section is divided into innings, with baseball used as the backbone analogy throughout the book. The Uncommon Investor takes the reader from the initial stages of choosing the stock, through to the buy and sell decisions; focussing on how to identify companies which are turningaround or under valued. The techniques start from basic stock market methodologies, and gradually move to a more intricate methodology. Care is taken to ensure that readers will not only be learning a process, but remain entertained. In addition, The Uncommon Investor explores other investment opportunities. Mutual funds, bonds, gold, commodities, real estate, and government paper are all highlighted as investment options. The pros and cons of each of these areas are looked at.

Occupational and Personal Pension Schemes

Review of Certain Contracting-out Terms; Reports by the Government Actuary and the Secretary of State for Work and Pensions in Accordance with Sections 42 (1), 42B (1) and 45A (1) of the Pension Schemes Act 1993 on the Following Draft Order: the Social Security (Reduced Rates of Class 1 Contributions, Rebates and Minimum Contributions) Order 2006

This report covers the review of the rebate by the Government Actuary for people with salary-related contracted-out schemes (COSRS), money purchase contracted out schemes (COMPS) and Appropriate Personal Pensions (APPS) in relation to the five year period commencing on 6 April 2007. Rebates appropriate for members of APPs and COMPs would also be appropriate where such schemes are stakeholder pensions, under the terms of the Welfare Reform and Pensions Act 1999. The paper sets out two reports on occupational and personal pension schemes, one by the Government Actuary and the other by the Secretary of State for Work and Pensions. Under the Pension Schemes Act 1993, a review is required every 5 years of the percentages specified in section 41 of the Act for the reduction in the Class 1 National Insurance contributions for members of salary-related contracted-out schemes (COSRS), known as the rebate. The review should cover any changes in the factors affecting the cost to occupational pension schemes. Separate requirements exist for members of money purchase contracted-out schemes (COMPs). The previous review was published in March 2001 (Cm.5076, ISBN 0101507623). The reduced rates and rebates set out in this report will have effect from 6 April 2007 and may continue to apply until April 2012, though recommendations on the future of contracting out pension schemes as set out in "A New Pension Settlement for the Twenty-First Century" (ISBN 0117036021), along with Government proposals in a White Paper due in the Spring 2006 may lead to a further review of the reduced rates and rebates of National Insurance contributions.

This volume sets the stage for understanding the evolution and importance of nursing science in the field by providing a brief historical overview of the tobacco epidemic and emerging science, describing changing trends in tobacco use, reviewing health risks of smoking and benefits of quitting, reviewing concepts in nicotine addiction and evidence-based recommendations for tobacco dependence treatment. Also highlighted are nursing science efforts and leadership in addressing two barriers to mounting programs of nursing research in tobacco control: the lack of nursing education and training in tobacco control and the limited research funding and mentorship. Finally, the contributors to this volume address the issue of smoking in the profession as it influences nurses' health, interventions with patients, and, potentially, scholarship efforts.
