  10. 2005 HDR The HDR 2005: “International Cooperation at Cross Roads” has three objectives: • To outline the state of HD across the world, with a special focus on how far countries are from achieving the Millennium Development Goals (MDG) • To draw attention to inequality as an important barrier to progress. The report argues that millions of people could be lifted out of poverty if steps were taken to income the growth rate of incomes of the poor. • To discuss the three core issues of international cooperation: Aid, Trade and Security where steps are needed

  11. 2005 HDR Focuses on what governments in rich countries can do to keep their side at the global partnership bargain. The Report looks at 3 pillars of Cooperation: • Development Assistance which suffers from two problems:chronic under financing and poor quality • International trade which has the potential to increase the share of the world’s poorest countries and people in global prosperity • Security which could create the conditions for accelerated human development. Failure in any one area will underline the foundations for future progress
