A Missed Opportunity: The World Bank's World Development Report 1995

Publication Date: 

January 1, 1995

The World Bank's World Development Report 1995: Workers in an Integrating World (WDR) afforded an opportunity for the World Bank to provide leadership on a central issue that faces both its borrowing and non-borrowing member countries: how the increasing competition of countries for the same pool of investment capital, particularly for the purpose of producing manufactured goods, can be reconciled with the interests of workers in industrialized countries and countries at lesser stages of development.

By Alexandra Spieldoch

This preliminary research paper fills a gap in the body of literature around food and agriculture in relation to gender.

Children as young as nine are tricked or sold into slavery to work on cocoa plantations in Cote d’Ivoire, where almost half of the world's

cocoa is grown. Cocoa in the U.S. is imported by companies such as Nestlé, Cargill and Archer Daniels Midland.
