Publication: International Public Goods : Incentives, Measurement, and Financing
Files in English
Increasingly, the consequences of globalization call for the involvement, not only of national governments, but of the international development community as a whole. Such involvement needs to occur within a comprehensive framework that encompasses stakeholders from government, non-governmental organizations, and businesses acting together in partnership. This requires the leveraging of general aid and country-focused development resources along with encouraging private financing participation. The book explains different ways that this type of framework might be structured, and focuses on different financing strategies that can be developed. It acknowledges the value of country specific efforts while recommending a multi-national approach to addressing problems resulting from globalization. This book evaluates the concepts fundamental to the term "public goods" and details alternative governance structures including the role of incentives.
