This collection offers a new rationale and framework for international development cooperation. Its main argument is that in actual practice, development cooperation has already moved beyond aid (i.e. assistance to poor countries) and onto issues such as the ozone hole, global climate change, HIV, drug trafficking, and financial volatility. These issues are not poverty-related but instead concern global housekeeping, which helps to ensure an adequate provision of global public goods. Contributors include Amartya Sen, the 1998 Nobel Laureate in Economics, Jeffrey Sachs of the Harvard Institute for International Development, Joseph Stiglitz of the World Bank, and many others.

"At a time when many are saying that globalization has gone too far, UNDP has produced a wide and deep study of global public goods. The volume deals with peace and trade, but also with global warming, transnational pollution, disease and financial crisesall public badsand their suppression, which constitutes a good. The subject is complex but of paramount importance to a world experiencing, or approaching, multidimensional crises."--Charles Kindleberger, Massachusetts Institute of Technology "This is an important piece of work on one of the most interesting and urgent problems of our time. An increasing number of issues, including those of the developing world, are an international responsibility. This volume does a distinctively important service by drawing this fact to our attention. I admire the effort that has gone into it. I particularly endorse the result."--John Kenneth Galbraith, Harvard University "We need better international cooperation to ensure that human beings have full access to necessary public goods. This volume is an invaluable tool to bring this goal closer."--Paul Kennedy, John Dilworth Professor of History, Yale University "With the publication of this volume, UNDP has again proved to be a leading intellectual agency, as well as an important operational body."-- Kazuo Takahashi, IDirector, International Development Research Institute, Tokyo "This volume introduces a framework for facilitating and reinforcing international development through an equal partnership model of cooperation. I find it enlightening, and hopefully reflective of the changing values of this era."--Ismail Razali, Chairman, Central Bank of Malaysia "Brings a fresh, forward-looking perspective to the issue of globalization and the responses necessary to ensure that the process really serves to improve the quality of life of the citizens of the world. The references are very useful for getting deeper into specific areas."--Mark Miller, University of Southern Mississippi "This wide-ranging collection of stimulating papers constitutes a very important addition to our understanding of the complex ways in which national lives affect other people, a solid understanding of which can be a powerful weapon against conflict in the coming decades....recemmended to a wide audience."--Choice "At a time when many are saying that globalization has gone too far, UNDP has produced a wide and deep study of global public goods.

This volume will prove useful to anyone interested in answering that question."--Jose Goldemberg, Former Minister of the Environment, Brazil, and a leading negotiator at the Rio Earth Summit "This volume is bound to be an important reference for future work and public debate."--Ralph C. Bryant,The Brookings Institution "The concept of public good offers a useful analytical framework for the continuing debate over the usefulness of aid because, among other things, of its focus on the mutuality of benefits. In particular, regional public goods must be a critical part of the strategy for Africas growth and development and for improving Africas competitiveness."--Kwesi Botchwey, Former Minister of Finance, Ghana
