Under Canada's Disaster Financial Assistance Arrangements (DFAA), the federal government can provide provinces with funds
for emergency response and recovery in the event of a natural disaster. This assistance has historically been provided on an ad hoc
basis. In recent years, the amount of DFAA assistance has significantly increased without any auditing to determine how effective
and efficient these expenditures are in offsetting economic losses due to natural disasters. The goal of this paper is to examine the
implications of natural disaster compensation and assistance programs for economic efficiency. A framework is developed to
determine if government assistance expenditures have offset economic losses to a specific industry using a case study of the...

The forest management strategy of Nepal is based on people’s participation, which is known as community forestry. This
approach was formally introduced in 1978 to encourage active participation of local people in forest management activities as a

management, utilization and distribution of benefits from a forest; they are organized as a Community Forest User Group.
Presently about 1.2 million hectares of forest is under the control of about 14,000 Community Forest User Groups. It has received
highest priority within the forestry sector and is one of the most successful development initiatives in Nepal. However, emerging

Terms-of-Trade Effects

This paper extends the ’ expanding-varieties’ growth model in a two-countries-two-goods setup, and describes the dynamics of
growth rates and terms of trade when the industry-based economy is the innovation leader, while the tourism-based economy is
the follower (i.e. increases the number of intermediate inputs by readapting innovations developed abroad). Two types of
transitional dynamics may exist: technological catching-up and technological falling-behind. Contrary to the standard result,
technological catching-up by the follower is associated with lower growth rates with respect to the leader, whereas terms-of-trade
effects guarantee positive growth differentials for the tourism-based economy when the technological gap with the leader
increases over...
