Why M-PESA Is Good News for Banks | CGAP
Mobile money has reshaped the way Kenyans send, receive and store money over the past 10 years. Safaricom's mobile money service, M-PESA, has played a crucial role in this transformation, but M-PESA is only half the story. After years of falling behind mobile money, bank accounts once again outnumber mobile money accounts - by 30 percent. CGAP's new working paper and blog examine how Kenya's banks have proven they can adapt and compete in the age of mobile money.

UNU-WIDER : Extractives for development (E4D)
Natural resource wealth has often turned out to be a ‘curse’ rather than a ‘blessing’ for developing countries. Growth based exclusively on natural resources—such as oil, gas, and minerals—is often of a very narrow kind which lacks opportunities for including the poor. This condition—also called ‘the natural resource curse’ is on the focus of this project.

New EADI Policy Paper: Development Studies and the SDGs - Mapping an Agenda
This paper explores the concepts of development and development studies and their links to Agenda 2030. It revisits earlier efforts towards a new development paradigm and thereby looks beyond the SDGs. It examines the efforts towards sustainable development as a concept within an emancipatory discourse, which should be rooted in global solidarity, justice and human dignity. It thereby advocates an agenda, which aims at rather complementing if not transcending Agenda 2030, instead of being limited to full compliance within the confinement of the SDGs. This is motivated and guided by the interest to maintain ownership by scholars over development studies instead of surrendering the power of definition to the political and aid bureaucracy.

PEGNet Policy Brief on Land use competition in Sub-Saharan Africa's rural areas
The Policy Brief titled “Land use competition in Sub-Saharan Africa's rural areas" has been authored by Kerstin Nolte from the GIGA German Institute of Global Area and Kacana Sipangule from the Kiel Institute for the World Economy.



The authors argue that the recent rise in the interest for agricultural land in Africa has not only been driven by foreign investments but also by domestic investors and emerging medium - scale farmers. The authors then proceed to show that this interest in agricultural land may have adverse consequences on land pressure and land use competition between commercial interests, local livelihoods and ecosystem services. Finally they argue that land poor smallholders and pastoralists are rendered the most vulnerable by these ongoing rural transformations and that policy should focus on raising their agricultural productivity and exploiting their potential.

The oceans and their coasts are also among our most valuable resources. While their critical importance is well understood, human pressure continues and oceans and coasts are under severe threat.

To respond to the need for new financial resources, in December 2016 the German Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ), through the KfW Development Bank (KfW), established the Blue Action Fund.

This year’s report emphasizes the importance of the social foundations of happiness. However 80% of the variance of happiness across the world occurs within countries. In richer countries the within-country differences are not mainly explained by income inequality, but by differences in mental health, physical health and personal relationships: the biggest single source of misery is mental illness. Unemployment causes a major fall in happiness, and even for those in work the quality of work can cause major variations in happiness.
