The basic need strategy has been intensively discussed at international forums in recent years, but there still exists today a certain ignorance regarding its content and the economic and political factors which would favour its establisment and consolidation. Accordingly, the author begins by defining it clearly, for which purpose he contrasts it with other strategies, particularly those aimed at eradicating poverty and other which combine elements of several options in a somewhat eclectic manner.
