International ReportsHuman Development Report 2000
The latest assessment of the state of human development across the globe by the United Nations Development Programme. This year's Report explores the new rights agenda for the 21st century and proposes bold new approaches to political and economic governance that deliver social justice. Stronger international action is called for, especially to support disadvantaged people and to offset global inequalities. The Report concludes that the advances in the 21st century will be won by confronting entrenched economic and political interests. Data on a wide array of indicators, including the Human Development Index, provide for comparisons across countries. Human Development Report 2000 was prepared by a team of eminent economists and distinguished development professionals, lead by Richard Jolly, Special Advisor to the Administrator of United Nations Development Programme, and Sakiko Fukuda-Parr, Director of the Human Development Report Office.

World Development Report 2000-2001: Attacking Poverty
The World Banks latest report on poverty. The World Development Report 2000/2001: Attacking Poverty reports that of the world's 6 billion people, 2.8 billion live on less than $2 a day and 1.2 billion on less than $1 a day. Poverty is evident in poor people's lack of political power and voice, and in their extreme vulnerability to ill health, economic dislocation, personal violence and natural disasters. HIV/AIDS, civil conflicts, and rising disparities between rich countries and the developing world have increased the sense of deprivation and injustice for many. Nevertheless, the Report proposes that major reductions in poverty are possible if markets, state institutions, and civil societies can harness the forces of economic integration and technological change to serve the interests of poor people and increase their share of society's prosperity. This report is the standard for international social and economic data collected from over 200 countries. Co-published by the World Bank and Oxford University Press, 2000.
