Development Policy and Planning: A Third World Perspective

Synopsis

This volume examines the experiences of a number of Third World countries in implementing development plans in the 1970s and offers some guidelines for research, development, and analysis of policy. Some chapters focus on theoretical issues such as the place of development on the policy agenda and the institutionalization of development policy planning. Other chapters detail global and national strategies for employment, reducing poverty, and developing human resources. The use of various economic indicators as tools for planning and analysis is also discussed.
