Financing Human Development in Africa, Asia and the Middle East

    By

    This book assesses feasible financing strategies for policymakers to follow in pursuance of human development, taking as reference the United Nations' Millennium Development Goals MDGs and their achievement by 2015. These strategies are analysed in the context of broader concerns of economic development with special reference to nine countries from Africa, Asia and the Middle East, that is, how to make macroeconomic policies support more effectively sustained growth while reducing widespread poverty and inequalities and other human development gaps in low-and middle-income countries, especially in times of global economic crises or external shocks. In this sense, this book adds new evidence regarding the social deficits in these countries and suggests policy options to overcome these.
