International Development Strategies and Cooperation for Development

  • Mahfuzur Rahman


Beginning in 1970, formal discussions at the United Nations on issues of economic development of developing countries have been conducted largely within the framework of an International Development Strategy. The three Strategies devised so far have been among the most quoted and referred to documents in economic dialogues at the organization over the last three decades. Implementation of the commitments made in these documents has been seen as a litmus test of international cooperation, and progress made in economic development of developing countries has often been measured against the goals set in them. The importance attached to the Strategies has waned with changing times, but they are a large part of the history of the economic debates in the central policy forums of the United Nations.
