What is development?
How can we compare the levels of development attained by different countries? And what does it take to make development sustainable?
This book offers no simple answers to these complex questions. Instead, the authors encourage readers to seek their own solutions by analyzing and synthesizing information on a range of critical development issues including population growth, economic growth, equity, poverty, education, health, industrialization, urbanization, privatization, trade, climate change, and more.
The book, which draws on data published by the World Bank, is addressed to teachers, students, and all those interested in exploring issues of global development.
This title is a publication of the World Bank Institute — promoting knowledge and learning for a better world.
