image of Human Development Report 2003
Human Development Report 2003 overviews successes and failures of development over the last decade and presents a bold action plan on how nations can achieve the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs). The plan, entitled “Millennium Development Compact,” lists six policy areas where a number of countries need to make progress to reach the MDGs. The plan argues for a big step-up in resources to ensure that these countries meet the Goals and invites donor countries to keep their promises. Human Development Report 2003 includes the first full set of data indicating the status of each goal in every country.

Public policies to ensure environmental sustainability

Ensuring environmental sustainability—the seventh Millennium Development Goal—requires achieving sustainable development patterns and preserving the productive capacity of natural ecosystems for future generations. Both efforts in turn require a variety of policies that reverse environmental damage and improve ecosystem management. The challenge has two dimensions: addressing natural resource scarcity for the world’s poor people and reversing environmental damage resulting from high consumption by rich people.
