February, 2000

We dedicate this report to the late Mahbub ul Haq, a member of our Commission who inspired us with his vision and reminded us that too often it is the lack of intellectual courage rather than the lack of wisdom which holds us back from reaching up to what the future could achieve.

Richard Jolly, Chairman of the ACC/SCN played a pivotal role in supporting this initiative and substantial editorial help was provided by Sonya Rabeneck and her staff in the ACC/SCN Secretariat.

Detailed research for the Commission was undertaken by
Karen McColl, Ann Ralph and Nina Seres. Colette Backwell and Jean James
provided additional help.
