the IDB's present and future efforts that respond to the call of the Santa Cruz Summit to international organizations in support of its Declaration. The document covers the Bank's strategic areas of action under its sustainable development mandate, including human capital formation, rural poverty and sustainable agriculture, integrated natural resource management and the environment, urban economic development, and economic and financial modernization.

The Bank, with the United Nations Development Programme and the Andean Development Corporation, sponsored the publication of Dawn in the Andes, a book written by a group of experts under the auspices of the Latin American and Caribbean Commission on Development and the Environment. The book takes a wide-ranging look at the natural and cultural heritage of this heterogenous region situated along the Andean mountain range, whose influence, both direct and indirect, affects the ecological, social, and economic well-being of the entire continent of South America. Principles for a sustainable development strategy of the Andean region are proposed to meet present and future challenges in political economy, sustainable natural resource management and use, urban development, and cultural diversity.
