WHERE ARE THE POOR? EXPERIENCES WITH THE DEVELOPMENT AND USE OF POVERTY MAPS

(World Resources Institute 2002) WRI in collaboration with UNEP/GRID-Arendal has conducted a study examining the uses and impacts of poverty maps. Drawing on case studies from 14 countries in Africa, Asia, and Latin America, the report reviews how poverty maps were used and some of the factors constraining their use in a wide variety of geographic and institutional settings.

SELFISH ALTRUIST RELIEF WORK IN FAMINE AND WAR

(Earthscan 2002) Written by Tony Vaux, this book addresses the possibility of being true to the humanitarian principle of concern in a world where much of the suffering is man-made, and where political divides do not neatly separate good and evil.

MEASURING AUSTRALIA'S PROGRESS

Is life in Australia getting better? The Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) has released a major report  Measuring Australia's Progress (MAP) that attempts to answer this question. This publication does not claim to measure every aspect of progress that is important. Nor does it consider all of the many different ways that parts of Australia and groups of Australians are progressing. But it does provide a national summary of many of the most important areas of progress, presenting them in a way which can be quickly understood. MAP will evolve in the future by taking account of public feedback to the publication as well as changing views about progress and the availability of new data. The next issue is planned for early 2004.

MAP presents 15 headline indicators of Australian progress over the past ten years. A wide ranging consultation process, along with the help of numerous experts, helped the ABS choose the headline areas of progress and the best indicator to measure each area. This publication is useful as a basis for international comparison for researchers and students and is available online at http://www.abs.gov.au
