Alternative Development Strategies for the Post-2015 Era

image of Alternative Development Strategies for the Post-2015 Era
The global economic crisis of 2008-2009 exposed systemic failings at the core of economic policymaking worldwide. The crisis came on top of several other crises, including skyrocketing and highly volatile world food and energy prices and climate change. This book argues that new policy approaches are needed to address such devastating global development challenges and to avoid the potentially catastrophic consequences to livelihoods worldwide that are likely to result from present approaches. The contributors to the book are independent development experts brought together to identify a development strategy capable of promoting a broad-based economic recovery and at the same time guaranteeing social equity and environmental sustainability both within countries and internationally. This new development approach seeks to promote the reforms needed to improve global governance, providing a more equitable distribution of global public goods.



About the committee for development policy

The Committee for Development Policy (CDP) was established in 1965 and its first chair was Nobel Laureate Professor Jan Tinbergen. The CDP is a subsidiary body of the United Nations Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC). It provides ideas, inputs and independent advice to the ECOSOC on emerging cross-sectoral development issues and on international cooperation for development. The CDP is also responsible for reviewing the status of least developed countries (LDCs) and for monitoring their progress.
