Strengthening Innovation for the Prosperity of Nations

cover

 The Innovation for Development Report

The relative importance of various drivers of economic growth and prosperity has evolved over time, and, for a growing number of countries, innovation in its many dimensions is emerging as a leading factor. The Innovation for Development Report provides a comprehensive look at the role of innovation in enhancing the development process. The Report is divided into three thematic parts (see contents here).pdf The first features the Innovation Capacity Index, a methodological tool that examines a broad array of factors, policies, and institutions that have a bearing on strengthening innovation in a large number of countries. The second part of the Report contains several papers from leading experts addressing different dimensions of innovation. Among the questions addressed: What has been the impact on countries’ economic growth of increasing access to information and communication technologies? Why is our current patent system so inefficient and how is it undermining innovation? How can innovation be more inclusive and stimulate more sustainable and equitable patterns of economic growth? The third part of the Report presents innovation profiles for 68 of the larger economies, which account for the lion’s share of world output.
