Human Development Report 2005

Released Wednesday, the latest issue of the HDR gives special attention to the intersection of aid, trade and security.

More effective rules in international trade will count for little in countries where violent conflict undermines opportunities to participate in trade. Increased aid without fairer trade rules will deliver sub-optimal results. And peace will remain a fragile entity without the prospects for improved human welfare and poverty reduction that can be provided through aid and trade.

The newest version of their Human Development Index (HDI) is of course also included, with Norway at top and Niger at the bottom.
