A New Equity Agenda?

The aim of this project is to identify areas of agreement and consensus between the three reports related to the issue of equity and/or equality: the 2006 World Development Report, the 2005 Human Development Report, and the 2005 Report on the World Social Situation. Three broad questions were addressed: a) should equity be a goal of development policy, and if so which particular conception of equity should be used?; b) is there a distinct equity policy agenda, different from existing policy agendas?, and c) how can the equity policy agenda be implemented?
