World Development book links: Millennium Development Goals

The links to articles from newspaper and magazine web sites that are given below are intended as a source of current information that will help research into development issues and they could also be used for the article analysis coursework that is part of the World Development A level course. No list is definitive and the intention is to develop this gradually as a resource for anybody interested in global development.

The articles are loosely categorized using the general headings in the text book but their content is often very broad.
