December and January were busy months. The U.S. National Intelligence Council released their latest quadrennial Global Trends Report, we saw a progress report on USAID’s Feed the Future Initiative, and Typhoon Bopha showed why developing countries are so vulnerable to climate change. Laurie Mazur also responded to Blair A. Ruble’s Wilson Center policy brief on 21st century urbanization with a look at how sustainable cities really are, and we heard from Ethiopia’s PHE community about the challenges of project monitoring and evaluation. Some past-year favorites emerged again as well, with Yemen’s demography, a look at Mongolia’s mining boom, and a great map of the world’s exclusive economic zones.
