With 2.1 billion people – mostly in rural areas – lacking safely managed drinking water and reported low rural water supply functionality rates, the Sustainable Development Goals pose a triple challenge: to reach unserved mostly rural population groups, to raise service levels, and to sustain existing and future services. This assessment uses a multi-country case study approach to identify good practices and challenges toward building sector capacity and strengthening sustainable service delivery models for rural areas. Recognizing the limitations of the Demand Responsive Approach, the emergence of various management models, the identified need for ongoing support to rural service providers, and the critical role of enabling institutions and policies beyond the community-level, the added value of this assessment lies in: i) the development of a comprehensive analytical framework that can be used to analyze and operationalize a more sustainable service delivery approach for rural water supply; ii) the rich set of cases and good practices from the 16 countries informing the global body of "knowledge in implementation," and iii) the formulation of recommendations and policy directions to improve the sustainability of services depending on sector development stage. Policy recommendations are centered around five areas: institutional capacity, financing, asset management, water resources management, and monitoring and regulatory oversight.

At the 18th Conference of the Parties to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC), the parties agreed to a standard format for developed countries to follow when reporting on the climate finance they provide to developing countries.
Developed countries will use these formats for the first time when they submit their Biennial Reports to the UNFCCC in early 2014. Later in 2014, developing countries are expected to submit Biennial Update Reports showing the financial support that they have received. From initial attempts to measure and report climate finance by developed and developing countries, it is already apparent that information on finance provided is unlikely to match information on finance received.
Aside from the reporting requirements of the UNFCCC, better financial data can help decision makers in developing countries identify gaps, improve coordination and management, and raise funds to mitigate and adapt to climate change. Better climate finance information can also enable countries to draw lessons from the use of different financial instruments and develop strategies and policies that aim to expand finance for climate change. Improved data will allow the information reported by developed countries to be cross-checked, thus promoting transparency, completeness, and accuracy. Finally, it can contribute to a more comprehensive picture of climate financial flows in relation to development assistance at the national and international levels.
This working paper reports on three workshops in Asia, Africa, and Latin America, in which participants discussed some of the steps that developing countries and their international partners can take toward monitoring and tracking climate finance more effectively. More than 40 representatives from 20 developing countries, regional development banks, and national organizations attended the three workshops. Participants shared information on the limits of existing legislation and mandates, national planning and approval processes, financial management systems, efforts to coordinate among ministries and development partners, and many other unique challenges faced by the participating countries. WRI obtained additional information via a questionnaire, follow-up correspondence, and interviews with representatives of the countries.

Le présent article tente d'identifier les comportements stratégiques-types des dirigeants des PMEAA et de mesurer leurs effets sur la création de la richesse et la réduction de la pauvreté au Bénin. Les résultats empiriques obtenus montrent que les dirigeants adoptent dans leur majorité des comportements patrimoniaux, alors que ce sont les comportements entrepreneuriaux qui permettent d'améliorer la richesse créée à hauteur de 0,62 millions de FCFA. Cette richesse créée améliore dans le ménage le niveau d'éducation des enfants, la sécurité alimentaire et les conditions d'accès aux soins de santé. Il en est de même pour l'accès à l'eau potable et à l'électricité, l'épanouissement de la femme et l'amélioration du niveau de revenu du ménage, ainsi que la création d'emploi pour la société.
Les créances publiques dues par l'Etat et les autres personnes de droit public sont irrécouvrables du fait des règles d'immunité d'exécution prévues par l'Acte uniforme de l'Organisation pour l'Harmonisation en Afrique du Droit des Affaires (OHADA), et cette situation accroît les difficultés de trésorerie des petites et moyennes entreprises et réduit leurs capacités financières de faire face, à leur tour, au remboursement de leurs dettes, particulièrement les avances bancaires.

The purpose of this research is to understand the mechanisms by which the actions of corporate social responsibility can affect organizational commitment and organizational identification consumers. From an experiment performed with video support of social responsibility of the telephone operator MTN Benin, data were collected from a sample of judgment seven hundred and ten mobile phone users. The analysis shows that the consumer perception of the actions of social responsibility of the company affects their commitment and organizational identification. Socially responsible consumption appears as a moderating variable to put direct links days. However, the communication by the company on its "good deeds" does not seem to affect these relationships.
This report addresses three of the core areas: primary healthcare, clean water and sanitation, and nutrition -- that are essential to achieving the MDGs. It highlights examples across 17 countries of how bringing different development approaches together (ie. integration) is working to help tackle poverty and disease and calls on the international community, including donor and developing country governments, to prioritize and invest in these joined-up programs. The experiences and lessons learned from the case studies described in this report show real world examples of how to make integration work and why it's so important to do so.
