  • Economic and Sector Work (ESW) feature original analysis of agriculture and rural development issues that seek to create discussion within the broad development community.

  • ARD Discussion Papers describe ongoing research and/or implementation experiences from the World Bank. These papers draw implications for policymakers and project teams where appropriate.

  • ARD Notes are short briefs addressing one issue. The Notes are made to be accessible for all audiences, including the media, busy policy-makers, and non-technical specialists. Notes present the major points of a specific issue in the agricultural sector in short, succinct prose.

  • The Agriculture and Rural Development Series presents recent analyses of issues that affect the role of agriculture, including livestock, fisheries, and forestry, as a source of economic development, rural livelihoods, and environmental services. The series is intended for practical application and is produced through the World Bank’s Office of the Publisher. Copies are distributed and sold widely and can be purchased at the World Bank’s InfoShop and accessed at World Bank's e-library.

  • Partnership publications are joint collaborations of ARD and other World Bank departments; ARD and partner development organizations; or publications focusing on Agriculture and Rural Development, produced by other World Bank departments.
