Catherine Walsh looks at how we can understand the emergence in the Andes Region and Ecuador of buen vivir, living well or collective well being, as the guiding principle for a new regimen of development. She asks if this really is a shift to new social and sustainable forms of development and what the experiment in the Andes suggests for today's rethinking of development institutions.
