National Development Strategies Policy Notes

National Development Strategies Policy NotesThe Policy Notes were developed by UNDESA in cooperation with UNDP, offering practical guidance on how to operationalize: (1) employment-generating macroeconomic policies, (2) inclusive finance for development, (3) public enterprise reform (alternatives to privatization), (4) pro-poor trade policies, (5) investment and technology (industrial) policies, and (6) social policies. The Policy Notes are particularly useful because they focus on critical areas where other sourcebooks and guidelines do not adequately reflect alternative policy options. They were authored by Ha-Joon Chang, CP Chandrasekhar, Murray Gibbs, Mushtaq Khan, Isabel Ortiz and Shari Spiegel (in alphabetical order) and reviewed by Nobel Laureate Joseph Stiglitz and other distinguished development specialists.

Electronic copies of the chapters and translations to Arabic, Chinese, French, Russian and Spanish are available at:
