The Triple Crisis: What development prospects for Africa?

On May 13 and 14, 2010, Wider invited at its headquarters in Helsinki some 200 development economists from all over the world to celebrate its 25th anniversary, assess the implications of the unfolding triple crisis—Food, Finance, and Climate Change—, and correspondingly map its future role in development economics. This was an appropriate time as the crises and the responses to the crises are major turning points, contributing to the emergence of a new order for international economic development.
