About the product

What started as a financial crisis in the US has quickly unfolded into an economic crisis that now threatens to roll back the development gains of the last decade and may precipitate a human tragedy in many parts of the developing world. The analysis presented in this report provides a regional perspective on how this crisis is impacting the member states of the five regional commissions of the UN, and examines the types and adequacy of responses at the national and regional levels. It suggests ways in which the Regional Commissions can use their collective strengths to prevent the economic crisis from becoming a human crisis.
