The results revealed a significant. Downloadable. The authors estimate changes in the distribution of household consumption expenditure in Namibia since Independence in and the effects on poverty.

To produce comparability between two household surveys, they use survey matching techniques and apply the framework of stochastic dominance to test the robustness of the results.

This paper studies the changes in the distribution of incomes in Namibia since Independence in and the effects on poverty. We first use micro-econometric techniques to improve comparability. Mapaure, I (). Review of Climate Change in Namibia: Projected trends, Vulnerability and effects.

Although the poverty rate in Africa has dropped in recent years, rapid population growth means that the number of people suffering poverty keeps growing: from million in to an estimated million in Of Namibia’s known bird species, 60 (or 9%) are recognized as being under threat in Namibia’s Red Data Book (Simmons and Brown in press).

The birds under threat are categorized into four major groups: Inland wetland birds (19 species (32%; plus 3 raptor species = 37%)) Birds of Prey (18 species (30%)).

The economy of Zambia is one of the fastest growing economies in Africa and its capital, Lusaka is the fastest growing city in the Southern African Development Community (SADC).

Zambia itself is one of Sub-Saharan Africa's most highly urbanized countries. About one-half of the country's 16 million people are concentrated in a few urban zones strung along the major transportation corridors Currency: Zambian kwacha (ZMW). It is as low as 20%–25% of GDP in Mauritius, South Africa and Namibia and as high as 50% to 65% of GDP in Benin, Tanzania and Nigeria.

The informality is estimated to average 40% in low-income economies and 35% in middle-income economies in SSA, implying that informality declines with increasing income.

In Namibia, a commodity-dependent country, falling revenues and a prolonged period of expansionary fiscal policy conspired to widen the fiscal deficit to % of GDP in As a result, the government introduced a fiscal consolidation programme during the mid-term review of the /17 budget, which introduced expenditure cuts of up to %.

This book explores the connections between infrastructure reform and poverty alleviation in Latin America based on a detailed analysis of the effects of a decade of reforms.

Ravallion and Chen () and Easterly () estimated the income–growth elasticity of poverty as a decreasing function of inequality. Similarly, using the rather limited sample of 32 paired rural and urban sectors for 16 SSA(sub-Saharan Africa) countries employed in Ali and Thorbecke (), Fosu () arrives at a similar conclusion about the inequality impact on the income elasticity of.This paper reviews Bangladesh's National Strategy for Accelerated Poverty Reduction (NSAPR).
