In late May WWF and UK NGOs organised a workshop on National Strategies for Sustainable Development (NSSDs). This discussed the call for all countries to produce NSSDs as one of the International Development Targets. It looked at how NSSDs fit with initiatives such as World Bank/IMF Poverty Reduction Strategy Papers, whether they are strictly “environmental” or about livelihoods, and the roles of civil society groups. The meeting report clarifies these issues and contains a list of resources.
As India has risen in the World Bank's Ease of Doing Business rankings, it has seen other key development indicators slip.
