Small and medium enterprise (SME) support programs are a common feature of industrial policy in developing countries, but one whose effectiveness is not well known. Governments are motivated to support SMEs both because they make up the majority of industrial enterprises and contribute substantially to GDP, employment and earnings, and because SMEs are thought to be weaker than their larger counterparts. Few governments, however, have evaluated their SME programs rigorously so there is little empirical basis for rational allocation of resources to the well performing programs.

Water and poverty are inextricably linked. Poor access to water and insufficient sanitation affect the health of the poor, their food security, and their prospects for making a living. In Asia and the Pacific region -- home to nearly 900 million of the world's poorest people -- one in three people does not have safe drinking water and one in two lacks adequate sanitation. This brief discusses how water can help in poverty alleviation.

A mid-term evaluation of the Global Land Tool Network (GLTN) was carried out to inform the planning and decision-making of the second phase of GLTN. The GLTN was launched in June 2006 with the goal of contributing to poverty alleviation and the Millennium Development Goals through land reform, improved land management and security of tenure. The Network is supported by a project implemented by UN-Habitat and funded by the Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency (SIDA) and the Government of Norway. The evaluation found that the GLTN had made impressive progress in achieving its expected outcomes, given its limited staff base and the short time in which funding has been available to implement activities. Further efforts are now required to reach national governments and those designing land projects.
