Biografie (woord)

Fatma Arf Oliver was a statistical consultant for The Boeing Company until her retirement in 2000. She is the author of scientific and technical papers.


'This book is an extremely helpful and timely contribution for the current or would-be professional at the international scale. It provides thorough information on the world and by region, and presents it using smart, easy-to-understand figures and graphs that synthesize a broad spectrum of knowledge. Using copious data analysis, this work carefully balances current theories and empirical lessons to propose doable actions and a promising future, but not without paying attention to dead ends and misconceptions.' Gerardo Segura, Senior Natural Resources Management Specialist, World Bank
