Avoiding the Dependency Trap

The Roma Human Development Report


The Roma Human Development Report 2003 points out that four to five million people in the region endure living conditions close to those of sub-Saharan Africa in terms of illiteracy, infant mortality and malnutrition. The objective of the report is to foster debate and experience sharing on this issue, and merge development organizations' efforts to increase human development opportunities for the marginalized communities of the region.
