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.


Advance praise: '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
