This is the first publication in a new UNIDO series devoted to the various dimensions of industrial development. This series is intended to build on development policy experience and to advance the frontiers of current thinking, with a focus on the least developed countries. This report reviews the following topics: the ingredients of growth with equity; the predicament of the least developed countries; shortcomings of today’s policy models; spreading access to income-generating assets; providing greater symmetry in the costs and benefits of international compacts; and caring about future generations.

Foreword

THE CURRENT PREDICAMENT OF MOST DEVELOPING COUNTRIES AND the state of the global economy deflate the optimism in the United Nations Millennium Declaration and the Millennium Development Goals. The problem is not just the apparent wedge between targets and trends. It is the more fundamental differences in what to expect of the future and how to get there.
