Welcome to HDRNet

The Human Development Resource Network (HDRNet) is a specialized electronic library on human development and international co-operation.

HDRNet is part of an international collaborative effort that brings together United Nations organizations, practitioners and researchers, enabling a broad community of participants from many different parts of the world to contribute material they consider relevant to the research and practice of human development in the form of articles, reports, monographs, videos and photos. It also archives a wealth of material that is not available through the internet or in other libraries, and can be searched in four languages.

HDRNet uses open-access technology and offers unrestricted access to the documents it archives. It aims to serve as a forum for disseminating high quality and practice-based research on human development, especially that produced in the South.

HDRNet is particularly intended for those engaged in a critical praxis of human development through international co-operation, either as practitioners, policy makers or as researchers. It aims to contribute to systematizing a critical body of knowledge for human development that overcomes present disciplinary boundaries and the divide between scholar, policy maker and practitioner, so that the academic benefits of research are accompanied by concrete social innovations.
