Disasters and violent conflicts continue to claim lives and destroy livelihoods of far too many people around the world and undermine development achievements. This can both heighten social and economic insecurity, and endanger those already vulnerable in societies, including women and young people. This focus on the restoration of economic strength in the aftermath of a conflict or disaster fosters long-term peace and stability, creates resilience to future crises and sets in motion an equitable and sustainable process of development. UNDP approach to early stabilisation and inclusive growth embraces nationally-owned, crisis and gender-sensitive interventions that are responsive to market conditions and aligned with security, recovery, conflict prevention and development programming of other partners. To highlight some achievements in 2011, UNDP worked with partners to create over 5.2 million workdays of emergency jobs; provided support to over 101,000 crisis affected people, including ex-combatants and internally displaced people (of whom 40% were women) to establish micro, small and medium enterprises; and rehabilitated socioeconomic infrastructure for development to occur in places as diverse as Afghanistan, Burundi, the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Haiti, Honduras, Indonesia, Kenya, Myanmar, Nigeria, Nepal, Pakistan, Somalia, Sri Lanka, Sudan, South Sudan, Tajikistan and Uganda, helping to sustain livelihoods and revitalise economies in these crisis and conflict-affected countries.

As environmental degradation continues in the wake of consumptive lifestyles in developed nations and the movement away from subsistence existence amongst the poor in developing nations, there is a critical need to understand the interface between natural resources and the people who hold power over these resources to help bring management and balanced solutions. Forests and important mammal inhabitants are victims of this anthropogenic environmental degradation, and as such, protection has been afforded to some. This book examines a protected forest fragment on the north coast of Honduras to understand the interface of mantled howler monkeys, the forest they inhabit, and the collection of humans who utilize resources or hold power over the protected area. In this virtual biogeographical island, 12 months of extensive field research was conducted. Results indicate that the environmental degradation, such as fragmentation, and habitat alteration and loss, can be countered. Viable solutions include helping to improve connectivity, such as connecting forest remnants with micro- corridors using living fences, in combination with management and education.

Guatemala, El Salvador, Nicaragua, and Honduras are four Spanish speaking countries in Central America that possess uniformed military institutions. These four countries represent different approaches to reforms of civil-military relations, and embody varying degrees of success in both institutional democratization and the managing of security forces. In this book, Orlando J. Pérez expertly examines the competing theories of civil-military relations in Central America to advance our understanding of the origins, consequences and persistence of militarism in Latin America. Divided into four parts, Pérez begins by proposing a theoretical framework for analyzing civil-military relations, including an analysis of how U.S. foreign and military policy affects the establishment of stable civilian supremacy over the armed forces. Part Two examines the institutional and legal structures under which civil-military relations are carried out revealing in Part Three the reorientation of the missions and roles performed by the armed forces in each country. The concluding part analyzes the role beliefs of members of the military and public opinion about the armed forces in relation to other institutions. Combining both qualitative and quantitative data, Pérez bridges the gap between structural and cultural analyses for a more comprehensive understanding of the links between micro and macro level factors that influence civil-military relations and democratic governance.
