[Note that the subject Story is available this week in the "Development
Front" Section of the IDN Web Site]

This week the IDN Web Site at welcomed visitor
number 11,000 since our launch in late February of this year.  Thanks to
all who have visited the site and also to those who have made
contributions and/or suggestions.

The IDN exists for the purpose of sharing, exchanging and disseminating
news, ideas, and information relating to sustainable economic
development.  By providing a central repository of information, we hope
to make your searches for information easier.  We do not have the deep
pockets of the UNDP nor do we receive funding from Development Agencies
(as we are not eligible - USAID says they do not fund Development
Information Programs and CIDA only funds Canadian Groups), so we keep
plugging along with the support of individuals or organizations who are
helping to support our efforts.  A special thank you to those folks too.

Here is what is new this week:

UNDP Human Development Report 1998 (Direct Link from the IDN Web Site)

Despite a dramatic surge in global consumption -- with real expenditures
doubling over the last 25 years -- more than one billion people still
lack the opportunity to consume in ways that meet their basic needs.
Others, especially in the industrial countries, are consuming in ways
that cannot be long sustained environmentally or socially.

The Human Development Report 1998 explores the complex issues behind
these trends, questioning the economic, social and regulatory forces
that perpetuate today's problems.

Seeking patterns of consumption that improve the lives of all people,
the Report sets out an action agenda to bring about consumption that is
shared, strengthening, socially responsible
and sustainable.
