2. Important analysis from Duncan Green on inequality relating an event in Durban: Brazil v South Africa: what can the BRICS tell us about overcoming inequality?

3. Improving HIV testing and treatment in Mozambique: http://www.guardian.co.uk/global-development/poverty-matters/2013/mar/21/mozambique-leads-frontbattle-aids 

4. The Government of Swaziland is now selling off donated maize (food aid), ostensibly to buy inputs for subsistence farmers but even parliament sounds sceptical about that.
