This report investigates the global context for social development programmes with specific focus on four evolving programme areas: 1) early childhood development, 2) food and nutrition, 3) community home based care, and 4) community development workers. Policy choices that countries have made have not only been contingent on domestic circumstances such as the socioeconomic or political context but have also been shaped by the forces of globalization and policy influences from international agencies.
