Fierro, Luis
Jun 2005
Development requires more than financial resources. It also requires pertinent projects and the creation and transfer of knowledge and experiences about the various issues that, together, have an impact on economic, social and political development. This includes traditional areas such as agriculture and rural development, infrastructure and financial markets, and education and poverty reduction, as well as issues whose impacts on economic development have been recognized more recently. This book is designed to provide a quick overview of the IDB's Sustainable Development Department (SDS).
