The list of such policies and institutions is a long one, and it reflects the key role of the international environment in determining the extent of traction that developing countries can gain with improved policies and institutions of their own. The international community should carry out mutual assessment of how actions by rich countries are affecting the development, as well as the actions, of poor countries. Relevant areas for measurement include the following, in which rich countries can take positive steps to promote development, and which have a strong influence on the international flows of goods, aid, capital, knowledge, and people: • Volume and efficiency of aid, including the degree of harmonization of policies and procedures among donor countries • Openness of rich countries’ markets and extent of both tariff and nontariff barriers to exports from developing countries • International financial architecture and financial stability • Extent of knowledge transfer from rich countries and effectiveness of capacity building • Intellectual property regime and whether it primarily benefits or harms different parts of the developing world • Migration policies.
