About the product
This report is about financing human development. A single powerful idea runs through it – that the potential is enormous for restructuring national budgets and international aid in favour of human development. It lays foundations for a fresh set of priorities. It aims to refine further the concepts and the methods of measurement – and to distil more practical experience from many countries. Another aim is to do more research and analysis on participatory development and to examine the global dimensions of human development, looking at familiar international issues from a human perspective. The final message of this Report is one of hope. If we can mobilize the political base for action – nationally and globally – the future of human development is secure.
