NO-NONSENSE GUIDE TO INTERNATIONAL DEVELOPMENT

‘Overseas aid' and ‘international development' are catch-all terms that cover a multitude of activities - and abuses. Building dams in India, planting trees in Burkina Faso and rescuing street children in Brazil are images of development with which we can all identify. But what few people realise is that the terms aid and development often mask confusion, contradiction, and even downright deceit. This guide explains what ‘development' actually is
- and explores its political and economic roots in history. It shows what can happen in the name of development and argues for a more organic, social approach with those it seeks to serve as equal partners in the process.
