Arab Human Development Report 2003

Price: $ 23

Knowledge is recognized as a cornerstone of human development, a means of expanding people¿s capabilities and choices and a tool for overcoming human poverty. In the 21st century, knowledge is also increasingly a dynamic factor of production and a powerful driver of productivity and human capital.

The first Arab Human Development Report (AHDR 2002) identified a serious shortfall in knowledge acquisition, absorption and use as one of three cardinal deficits undermining human development in Arab countries.

AHDR 2003, the second report in this series, starts where the first left off and takes an in-depth look at how Arab societies can overcome their knowledge deficits by liberating and leveraging their intellectual, cultural and knowledge assets through good governance and social and economic innovation.

The report emphasizes that the substantial cultural, linguistic, religious, and intellectual capital of the Arab world is compatible with good governance and scientific rationalism. It provides new insights into the Arab intellectual model and indicates directions for its ongoing development.
