Financing Development in Times of Global Crisis

The Canadian Development Report 2009 ties together four chapters examining ways nations and the international community can ensure funding for sustainable and equitable development. This 11th edition of the CDR analyzes the current financial crisis, the challenges in making aid more effective, and discusses new ways of financing development such as the currency transaction tax, the levy on airline tickets, domestic resource mobilization, and the Bank of the South.

The CDR 2009 also includes up-to-date statistics and analysis related to the social and economic indicators of developing countries, along with statistics regarding the Canadian government’s involvement with these countries.

Available in both English and French, the The Canadian Development Report  2009– Financing Development in Times of Global Crisis – is a valuable tool and reference for academics, students, analysts, policy-makers and others with interests in innovative sources of funding for development.
