1. 2010 Human Development Report, The Real Wealth Of Nations: Pathways To Human Development. The annual United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) report on human development was released this week. Celebrated economist Amartya Sen provides input, the 236 annal retrospectively analyses development by identifying trends and patterns that can be used in the future. As expected, African countries are still laggards in the Human Development Indicators, which will be analysed next week here by Development Afrique.
2. Doing Business 2011, World Bank.

Again, Development Afrique will analyse these reports next week.
