Contents Notes
Acknowledgments -- Foreword -- Acronyms and abbreviations -- Roadmap to World Development Report 2003 -- Achievements and challenges -- Managing a broader portfolio of assets -- Institutions for sustainable development -- Improving livelihoods on fragile lands -- Transforming institutions on agricultural land -- Getting the best from cities -- Strengthening national coordination -- Global problems and local concerns -- Pathways to a sustainable future. The report "examines the relationship among competing policy objectives-reducing poverty, maintaining growth, improving social cohesion, and protecting the environment-over a 50-year horizon." The report is divided into nine chapters which deal with topics ranging from "Global Problems and Local Concerns" to "Getting the Best from Cities." While the casual reader may not have time to read the entire report, there is a 30-page overview that provides a description of the basic themes contained within the full report. At its essence, the report argues that "development is sustainable if the rules of the game are transparent and the game is inclusive." This important document will be especially relevant to those with an interest in sustainable development from an inclusive and global perspective.
