The study of public policy, including the methods of policy analysis, has been among the most rapidly
developing fi elds in the social sciences over the past several decades. Policy analysis emerged to
both better understand the policymaking process and to suppy policy decision makers with reliable
policy-relevant knowledge about pressing economic and social problems.
The proposal provides for short course training in marketing and policy analysis related to the post harvest sector and the resource sectors. Paralleling the short courses will be a number of mini research projects in these areas that will be designed to develop analytical skills of academic staff in the participating institutions.
This book has its conceptual origin from the lecture materials of the training
courses taught by one of the authors in the early nineties. It was during this
period that in several developing nations, particularly in Africa, even when the
signs of widespread hunger and abject poverty were visible, policy makers did
not act for want of ‘empirical evidence’. Some policy makers even dismissed the
severity of the problem saying that the hunger reports prepared by government
officials were not rigorous enough to take them seriously.
The World Bank Institute was established by the World Bank in 1955 to train officials con-cerned with development planning, policymaking, investment analysis, and project imple-mentation in member developing countries. At present the substance of WBI’s work empha-sizes macroeconomic and sectoral policy analysis.

Changes in the use of land reflect a variety of environmental and social factors, necessitating an equally varied suite of data to be used for effective analysis. While remote sensing, both from satellites and air photos, provides a central resource for study, socio-economic surveys, censuses, and map sources also supply a wealth of valid information. Land Use Change: Science, Policy and Management presents spacial theories and methodologies that support an integrated approach to the analysis of land use change.

In the United States and other developed nations, deregulation and greater reliance on
markets and the private sector has helped to reconi gure the transport industries. The

Understanding the long-term patterns of speciation and extinction may help sci-
entists answer some of the biggest questions about today’s patterns of bio diver-
sity—such as why the tropics are so diverse. David Jablonski, a paleontologist at
the University of Chicago, has tackled the question by analyzing the fossil record
of bivalves, noting where they were located, how large their ranges became, and
how long they endured.
Jablonski’s analysis of 3,599 species from the past 11 million years revealed a

For the past fifteen years the New Keynesian model has
served as a frame of reference for analyses of fluctuations
and stabilization policies.1 That framework has allowed the
rigor and internal consistency of dynamic general equilibrium
models to be combined with typically Keynesian
assumptions, like monopolistic competition and nominal
rigidities, thus setting the stage for a meaningful, welfarebased
analysis of the effects of alternative monetary policy
In 1999, RAND published Defense Working Capital Fund Pricing Policies: Insights
from the Defense Finance and Accounting Service (Keating and Gates, 1999). That
document analyzed the Defense Finance and Accounting Service’s (DFAS’s) cost
structure and recommended changes in Defense Working Capital Fund (DWCF)
pricing policies to better accord with DFAS’s cost structure.
In early 2001, DFAS leadership asked RAND to further examine DFAS’s cost
structure and pricing policies via a project entitled “Improving the Defense
Finance and Accounting Service’s Price Structure.
