Published in association with Harper Collins, the 'Atlas of Global Development' vividly illustrates the key development challenges facing our world today. Social, economic, and environmental issues that are facing the planet are presented by easy-to read, colorful world maps, tables, graphs, text and photographs. Drawing on data from the World Bank's authoritative 'World Development Indicators', the book brings to life country comparisons of social indicators like life expectancy, infant mortality, safe water, population, growth, poverty and energy efficiency. Issues that have been hitting the headlines such as AIDS, population living below $1 a day, freshwater, trade are presented giving an unbiased view of the state of the world we live in.

This title builds on and replaces the existing 'World Bank Atlas' which has been published by the World Bank for almost four decades.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal

Although slender, this volume packs vital statistics and interpretive insights on disparities involving global wealth, education, and sociopolitical conditions. The World Bank's Development Data Group, led by Shaida Badiee (World Development Indicators), judiciously prefaces the study with a variegated definition of poverty. Charts, graphs, and color maps elucidate in detail global population trends, educational opportunities, and political engagement. Although it will become dated as global resources grow and diminish, this volume offers a powerful representation of the world as it is now, a provisional developmental mission, and an enduring definition of poverty. Highly recommended. [Intended to build on and replace the existing print edition of World Bank Atlas.
