Implementation of sustainable development goals in developing countries: a case study of Zambia
Kachelo, Mukuka
This research was aimed at examining the implementation of SDGs in developing countries and it focused specifically on Zambia. To achieve this aim, existing data on SDGs obtained from official platforms was used to make observations about how the country is performing so far and the results showed that only 7 out of the 17 SDGs, based on selected indicators, have improved during the period under review. This put into question the adequacy of the policies and mechanisms put in place by the Zambian Government to implement the SDGs. Having established that Zambia has performed poorly when it comes to SDG implementation so far and reviewed some of the challenges based on existing literature and national review documents, this paper went a step further and sought the opinions of 105 Local Government officers who are actively involved in SDG implementation at the district level through a questionnaire. The officers identified budget constraints, lack of coordination among local stakeholders, and lack of coordination between the National, Provincial and District levels of government as the top 3 challenges to SDG implementation at the Local Level.

Evaluation of International Financial Integration on Growth in CEE Countries
Yang, Yang ; Jeřábek, Petr (advisor) ; Li, Yating (referee) ; Čech, František (referee)
The thesis examines the influence of international financial integration on growth in Central and Eastern European economies using a two-way fixed effects model with macroeconomic data for 16 Central and Eastern European countries from 2007 to 2021. The thesis draws several conclusions. First, the ratio of net FDI inflows and outflows to GDP does not present a significant effect on growth. Although the stock data on FDI is similarly not significant for the overall sample regression, the regression of the sample divided into developed and developing economies shows a positive effect of FDI liabilities on economic growth for developed economies and a negative effect of FDI liabilities on economic growth for developing economies. Second, for both the overall sample, developed economies, and developing economies, none of the portfolio investment asset variables are statistically significant, except for portfolio investment assets in developing economies. Third, both portfolio debt and other investment debt negatively affect economic growth in developing economies and the overall sample, while the result is not significant for developed economies.

Kotrba, Filip ; Kaprálková, Michaela (advisor) ; Šíma, Jan (referee)
Title: Establishing a Czech club football academy in a developing country Objectives: The main objective is to identify the pitfalls, benefits and conditions of implementing a Czech club academy in a developing country through semi-structured interviews with stakeholders. In achieving the main objective, it is crucial to identify and understand various aspects related to the implementation of the academy- Methods: The qualitative method chosen was semi-structured interviews. The study population consisted of 5 respondents who have many years of experience not only in the Czech football environment, but also have various experiences with football and football academies in developing countries, specifically in Africa. Results: The results showed that the establishment of a football club academy in a developing country by a Czech professional football club is possible. Thanks to the very high quality Czech youth football academies, most professional football clubs have a solid foundation for establishing an African club academy. Yet the construction and operation is not suitable for a Czech football club for several reasons. Developing countries, in the case of this thesis African countries, are often different in environment, culture and legislation than the Czech Republic. Czech football clubs do...

Population development in countries with the highest population growth rate Abstract The bachelor thesis focuses on the population development of the countries with the highest population growth rate in the period 1990-2020. The thesis aims to evaluate the population development of the countries with the highest population growth rate. For the selection of countries, an indicator of the crude rate of natural change of population is used, which excludes the influence of migration on population growth. One of the main goals of the work is, based on research, to find the factors that influence the population growth rate, and then evaluate the influence of these factors on selected countries. For the purpose of this work, the states of Mali and Niger were chosen, which rank among the countries with the highest population growth rate. The analytical part is based on data from the United Nations and the Demographic and Health Surveys. The results of this work confirm the third phase of the demographic transition in Mali and Niger, thus confirming the continuation of the reduction of fertility in these countries. According to the analysis of factors affecting total fertility rate, significant differences in the education and wealth of families were found, which were significantly reflected in the demographic...
Remitence a ekonomický rozvoj v zemích jižní Asie a Latinské Ameriky
Kupka, Michal
Remittances have become a very important source of income in developing countries. The aim of the thesis is to identify the main impacts of remittances on economic development in South Asia and Latin America and to compare these impacts between these regions. The main impacts of remittances on economic development were identified by literature review. The available literature dealing with topic of remittances devotes the most space to impacts on gross domestic product, poverty, education, health and investment. Next, regression models were used to quantify and to find differences between identified main impacts. System GMM estimator was used to find impact on gross domestic product. Different effect of remittances on the growth of gross domestic product between regions was found. Using the OLS model, a different effect was found also in the case of the impact of remittances on poverty. The impact on education was the last impact analyzed. According to the OLS model, there is a larger difference in educational expenditure between remittance receiving households and households not receiving remittances in Latin America than in South Asia. The impact on health and investment has not been further investigated due to lack of data.
Bezpečné prístavy v oblasti prevodních cien so zameraním na rozvojové štáty
Molnárová, Lucia
The issue of transfer pricing is currently one of the most significant tax probems, which needs to be confronted by multinational enterprises and tax authorities all over the world. The determination of transfer prices that is based on the application of the arm´s length principle, together with the administration and control of transfer pricing is often complicated, time-consuming and costly process. Especially for developing countries, many of which experience difficulties with col-lection data and their analysis due to the lack of information regarding comaparable transactions. For this reason, developing countries should consider using the safe harbour concept, at least for smaller taxpayers or in a case of less complicated transactions. This thesis focuses on proposal of safe harbour for selected develo-ping countries in Asia.
