In the same way that no economy starts out with the best set of economic policies, no economy starts out with the best institutions to support the policy-making process. Instead, they inherit institutions that reflect their own unique culture and history. The task of structural reform has to be addressed, therefore, in the context of domestic economic and political institutions and processes. Examining the nature of structural economic reform and the institutional circumstances in which it succeeds or is inhibited, this volume is less about the content of structural reform and more about how to get there. The chapters develop principles governing the types of institutions that are likely to assist the structural reform process, and then examine the application of those principles within a number of case studies. Finally, the volume presents some ideas about how regional cooperation could help to build and support those institutions that in turn support domestic structural reforms. Consisting of theoretical chapters and country specific case studies, this book draws on experience with structural reform across a range of Asian economies at different stages of economic development. As such it will be of interest to students and scholars of Asian Economics and Development Economics.

The fishing industry benefits the people and economies of the Pacific in various ways but the full value of these benefits is not reflected in the region's statistics. Records may be maintained but they are not complete, or accurate, or comparable. The research summarized in this report reaffirms the importance of this sector to the economies and societies of the Pacific island countries. The research reveals that the full value of fisheries is likely to have eluded statisticians, and therefore fisheries authorities, government decision makers, and donors. But its value has never escaped the fisher, fish trader, and fish processor. The difference in appreciation between public and private individuals must raise the question of whether fisheries are receiving adequate attention from the public sector---including the necessary management and protection, appropriate research, development, extension and training, and sufficient investment.

The implications of climate change for the environment and society depend on the rate and magnitude of climate change, but also on changes in technology, economics, lifestyles, and policy that will affect the capacity both for limiting and adapting to climate change. Describing Socioeconomic Futures for Climate Change Research and Assessment reviews the state of science for considering socioeconomic changes over long time frames and clarifies definitions and concepts to facilitate communication across research communities. The book also explores driving forces and key uncertainties that will affect impacts, adaptation, vulnerability and mitigation in the future. Furthermore, it considers research needs and the elements of a strategy for describing socioeconomic and environmental futures for climate change research and assessment. Describing Socioeconomic Futures for Climate Change Research and Assessment explores the current state of science in scenario development and application, asserting that while little attention has been given to preparing quantitative and narrative socioeconomic information, advances in computing capacity are making development of such probabilistic scenarios a reality. It also addresses a number of specific methodological challenges and opportunities and discusses opportunities for a next round of assessments.
