Seminar: Lagging Lands, Violent Lands

 

This event will look at an integrated policy framework on lagging lands, violent lands that combine the main thrusts of the WDR 2009 on Reshaping Economic Geography and the World Development Report 2011 on Conflict, Security, and Development, bringing it to life with country examples, and ultimately working towards a global agenda of action around "no area left behind."This session will focus on solutions that stimulate sustainable and inclusive economic growth in lagging lands and urban spaces to bridge economic and social divisions and mitigate conflict and reduce human vulnerability.
