The 2017 Commodities and Development Report investigates the transmission channels through which commodity dependence affects micro- and macro-level development outcomes, examines long-term commodity price trends and simulates their impacts on economic agents, and highlights challenges and lessons from ten commodity-dependent developing country case studies. The report concludes that country-level strategies aimed at the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) must address commodity dependence in order to be successful.

Tourism - in terms of its contribution to GDP, employment and trade - is a critical sector for many African economies, and its growth is increasingly driven by tourists originating from the continent itself. However, most African countries still face significant challenges and constraints in exploiting the potential of tourism services in trade and economic development. The Economic Development in Africa Report 2017, subtitled Tourism for Transformative and Inclusive Growth examines the role that tourism can play in Africa's development process. It aims to identify key barriers and impediments to unlocking the potential of tourism in Africa to help structurally transform the continent's economy and provides policy recommendations on how these barriers and impediments could be addressed. It argues that tourism can be an engine for inclusive growth and that it can complement development strategies aimed at fostering economic diversification and structural transformation within an appropriate policy context.

There is mounting empirical evidence that the responsible provision and use of formal financial services have a positive impact on household well-being and enterprise performance. At the individual level, financial inclusion benefits rural households and small producers by facilitating the safe accumulation of assets, enabling them to leverage those assets in order to invest in human and physical capital, and supporting better risk management. The positive effects at the aggregate level are associated with better allocation of scarce resources among different activities.Despite recent progress on different aspects of financial inclusion in Latin America and the Caribbean, large gaps remain, especially in rural areas, which have been historically neglected by traditional providers of financial services. This book describes how these gaps have evolved recently in five countries -Costa Rica, the Dominican Republic, El Salvador, Honduras and Mexico- that are at different stages of designing and implementing comprehensive financial inclusion strategies. Then, on the basis of a comparative analysis of the institutional architecture available, it identifies the main barriers preventing small rural producers from accessing and making effective use of the various financial services on offer, with a view to making policy recommendations for overcoming these limitations.

"The Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labelling of Chemicals (GHS) addresses classification and labelling of chemicals by types of hazards. It provides the basis for worldwide harmonization of rules and regulations on chemicals and aims at enhancing the protection of human health and the environment during their handling, transport and use by ensuring that the information about their physical, health and environmental hazards is available. The seventh revised edition of the GHS which includes, inter alia, revised criteria for categorisation of flammable gases within Category 1; miscellaneous amendments intended to clarify the definitions of some health hazard classes; additional guidance to extend the coverage of section 14 of the Safety Data Sheets to all bulk cargoes, regardless of their physical state, transported under IMO instruments; revised and further rationalized precautionary statements in Annex 3; and a new example in Annex 7 addressing labelling of small packagings with fold-out labels."--UN online store, viewed September 27, 2017.

In the UNECE region, countries' approaches to poverty measurement vary significantly. There is a large spectrum of poverty indicators, wide varieties of definitions, methods, thresholds and data sources that are not fully matched by national or international guidelines. This publication provides guidance on applying various measurement approaches and aims to improve the international comparability of poverty statistics. It mainly targets national statistical authorities and provides useful information for policymakers, researchers and other users of poverty data.

This publication discusses the concept of unpaid household service work, focuses on identifying methodological and implementation issues with measuring own-use production work of services, and the challenges associated with both the measurement of labour input and the subsequent valuation. It provides recommendations aimed at producing estimates that are consistent with national accounting concepts and comparable across economies. It also limits the production boundary to own-use production work of services recognising that the measurement and valuation of the provision of services for other households - essentially volunteering -require separate guidance. Furthermore, it provides examples of how own-use production work of services has been measured in selected country-specific contexts, before concluding with some examples of more detailed analysis, and suggestions for further research areas.
