South and South-West Asia Development Monitor Number 11, 22 December 2012
The Development Monitor is a bimonthly electronic newsletter, launched in early 2012 (issued on a monthly basis initially), which provides an overview of the work and activities undertaken by the ESCAP South and South-West Asia Office and conferences and knowledge products of relevance to the subregion. The newsletter also provides a compilation of news and articles on themes covered by the ESCAP SSWA work programme.

A Policy Dialogue on Value Chains for Inclusive Development: Lessons and Policies for South Asia was held in Dhaka, Bangladesh on 24-25 November 2012. More than 70 participants from around the subregion came together for this event organized by Centre for Policy Dialogue, Bangladesh, Institute for Human Development, India, CARE Bangladesh, ESCAP South and South-West Asia Office, the University of Manchester Brooks World Poverty Institute and the Duke Center on Globalization, Governance and Competitiveness.
