Note sur la transposition à plus grande échelle: Mauritanie

décembre 2015
Depuis quelques années, la Mauritanie connaît la stabilité politique et les élections présidentielles de juin 2014 se sont déroulées dans un climat de paix. Par ailleurs, le pays a enregistré un solide taux de croissance de 6,7% en 2013 et reste placé sous le signe de la stabilité macroéconomique. Toutefois, la Mauritanie est exposée à des vulnérabilités, liées à un manque de diversification, à la volatilité des prix internationaux et à la dépendance à l’égard des flux de capitaux étrangers. Bien que la pays ait réussi à augmenter le revenu par habitant ces dernières années, la répartition des revenus n’a pratiquement pas changé au cours des deux dernières décennies, et le chômage reste un défi de taille. Il est essentiel de promouvoir une gestion rationnelle des ressources naturelles pour favoriser une croissance à long terme inclusive.

Scaling up note: Indonesia

décembre 2015
Indonesia is the largest economy in South-East Asia and has developed rapidly over the past decade into a competitive and decentralized electoral democracy with a fast growing middle class. Despite the country's positive progress in reducing poverty, vulnerability and inequality remain high. Nearly 40 per cent of Indonesians are highly vulnerable to shocks, which can push them back below the poverty line.

Changing lives through IFAD water investments: a gender perspective

décembre 2015
The following study was designed by IFAD in order to contribute to the knowledge about the relationship between gender, water investment and time saving. It is also intended to contribute to gender mainstreaming in IFAD’s water projects. The focus of the study is to see how much time women and men gain when they have improved access to sources of water and to establish what individuals, particularly women, do with the time they save by not having to walk long distances in search of water. The study further aims to discover to what extent the projects/investments contribute to reducing drudgery and to achieving equitable workloads between men and women. The survey targeted ongoing projects from the five regions in which IFAD operates that were either in their second phase or a mature stage of operation. In each project, one community was covered and 24 households were targeted. The survey successfully covered seven communities and 140 households and was mainly conducted through project officers facilitated by country programme managers or country programme officers.

A new generation of rural transformation : IFAD in Latin America and the Caribbean

novembre 2015
The Latin America and the Caribbean region is a different place than it was 25 years ago. Today, every nation except Haiti is categorized as middle income. The region has reduced poverty by half, and the prevalence of hunger has declined by almost two thirds. More than half the adult population has attended secondary school. Rural areas are changing too. They are no longer narrowly defined by their food production role, and key issues encompass many non-agricultural topics – including non-farm employment opportunities, especially for young people and women; migration and remittances; social protection; and the role of secondary cities.
