Description
Socially Sustainable Development

Today the 'world is investing less in social programmes than it did in decades past, and almost a quarter of the world is poorer than it was just ten years ago.

How can nations provide more people with better health, better education, and a better environment? Is economic growth enough? What will happen to the societies on this planet by midcentury when world income will likely be four times what it is today?

Those are some of the questions discussed in this edition of World Chronicle together with Steen Jorgensen, Director of the Social Development Department at the World Bank.
