Global Public Goods: International Cooperation in the 21st Century


  • Kaul, Inge
  • Grunberg, Isabelle
  • Stern, Marc
    (all at United Nations Development Programme)


Edited by the United Nations Development Programme, this collection of papers offers a new rationale and framework for international development cooperation. Its main argument is that in actual practice development cooperation has already moved beyond aid. In the name of aid (i.e. assistance to poor countries), we are today dealing with issues such as the ozone hole, global climate change, HIV, drug trafficking and financial volatility. All of these issues are not really poverty-related. Rather, they concern global housekeeping: ensuring an adequate provision of global public goods. Available in OSO:
