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.
'Many common benifits such as law enforcement depend on the co-operation of national governments, not on supernational bodies, Jeffrey Sachs, one of the report's contributors. An the huge number of existing aid, health and envioromental charities can be relied on to help transfer costs and benifits, says Amartya Sen, last year's winner of the Nobel prize for economics, and moving spirit behind the report.' The Economist (UK) 8/5/1999
