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.

World Happiness Report 2017 – Happiness is both social and personal #Happiness2017
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.

- debates on key challenges and opportunities regarding sustainable urban development, municipal and local governance and decentralisation, and
- interdisciplinary cooperation among various actors in urban and local development.

URBANET is supported and implemented by GIZ’s Sector Project “Policy Advise for Local and Urban Development”. Commissioned by the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) and working with strategic partners such as Cities Alliance and ICLEI, the project aims to embed the concept of cities as key actors of sustainable development in international policy processes. The project’s efforts are based on the three German key messages in the Habitat III process.

Steps in planning and managing an evaluation | Better Evaluation
While most evaluation resources are written for individuals who undertake evaluations, this guide is intended for program and project managers. As commissioners of evaluations, they define the purpose, scope, budget, and timing of an evaluation; they determine what evidence will be most useful; and they support the use of evaluations within their organizations. Their roles are crucial in ensuring high quality evaluation.
