ASSESSING DEVELOPMENT PARADIGMS: VISIONS AND STRATEGIES FOR DEVELOPMENT
9 Sept - 21 Oct 2011
This discussion aims to address the following questions: What development visions and policies have, in your opinion, been successful or unsuccessful so far and where have they been implemented? In what way will prevailing development paradigms* be able to adapt to current and future development constraints, e.g., population growth, energy issues and climate changes? Are there alternative, more suitable approaches to achieve socio-economic development while facing emerging challenges?

*A development paradigm can be defined as a path to achieve development, consisting of a set of actions based on a vision of the socio-economic system and a particular understanding of that which constitutes development. Some well-known paradigms include the Washington Consensus, the strategy of Import Substitution Industrialization, and newer paradigms, such as the "Green Growth" approach by the Economic and Social Commission for Asia and the Pacific.
