Developing a portfolio of financially sustainable, scalable basic legal service models
LDP has written a report on financially sustainable, scalable basic legal service models. The report has been commissioned by IDRC, the Open Society Foundations, and the Legal Education Foundation, with input from DFID. The report is expected to help donors, governments, and non-governmental actors determine new and systematic ways of scaling up basic legal services in a sustainable manner. Improving access to justice, in turn, will help states and their populations achieve their commitments made under the new SDGs.

Research Handbook on Secured Financing in Commercial Transactions (Edward Elgar Publishing, Inc., 2015)
LDP director Clare Manuel recently contributed a chapter entitled Levelling the legal playing field: what the law can and can’t do to improve women's access to secured finance to the Research Handbook on Secured Financing in Commercial Transactions published by Edward Elgar Publishing. The chapter provides an overview of what we know about women's access to secured finance internationally and considers how the formal law can help or hinder women’s access to secured finance. The focus is on family law, land titling law, and secured transactions law. The chapter looks at how contrasting family law regimes impact on women's ability to access credit on the ground by way of two case studies - Morocco and the Kyrgyz Republic, countries with very different economies, cultural contexts and legal systems. The chapter also provides suggestions for policy- and law-makers aiming to improve access to secured finance for women. Recommendations include: gaining a better understanding of the deeply political nature of reforming family and land law; deepening the evidence base about impact of family and land titling law reform; becoming better informed about the supply side; and reforming moveable property secured transactions law.

Empowering women with economic opportunity provides them with the means to take care of their families and communities, and escape the poverty cycle. These assessments for Papua New Guinea, Samoa, Solomon Islands, Timor-Leste, Tonga and Vanuatu address some of the barriers preventing women from realising their economic potential by providing practical and attainable solutions to improving business women's opportunities. The reports are the result of collaboration between the Australian Agency for International Development (AusAID) and IFC, and ask whether women face different or additional investment climate constraints in comparison to men.

Rolex COSC Chronometer certifies each of these rolex replica uk watches (as they do with most of their watches) and it has proven to be highly accurate and reliable (for a mechanical watch, of course). If I had to replica watches sale have a complaint about the Rolex Submariner 114060, it would be about the coating over the sapphire crystal. Rolex puts anti-reflective (AR) coating on the bottom of the crystal only, and not the rolex replica uk top. That means that there is glare; but not too much since it is flat crystal. I like the idea of having so much AR coating on a sapphire crystal rolex replica that it looks invisible and that you can stick your hublot replica sale finger right onto the dial. I am not sure why rolex replica uk does not use AR coating on the top of the crystal, but I am sure they have a good reason. I have have two hypothesized reasons why they don't. First is because AR coating can hublot replica uk wear off and Rolex doesn't like for their watches to have areas that are too susceptible to wear.
