Drawing on United Nations and other mainstream data, The World Guide includes all the facts,

central to the lives of people in the Global South, such as child health,
literacy, maternal mortality and land use.

-Up-to-date information plus a complete history for every country of
the world, including Montenegro, Palestine, Somaliland, West Papua,
Western Sahara
-In Focus box showing at-a-glance information on each country's human
rights, indigenous peoples, health, education and environment.


-25 new reports on topical global issues such as green economics,
energy scenarios, the gender gap, Latin American politics and security.


- The World in Figures - a comprehensive section
of data and statistics on child health, literacy, maternal mortality, land use,
public expenditure and other issues.


- Tables of factual information on key issues
such as debt, communications, corruption and trade, plus a unique guide to
Sexual Minorities and the Law.


The World Guide is a South-North collaborative effort between the Third
World Institute in Uruguay and the New Internationalist. With a clear,
country-by-country format it is the most accessible work of reference
for development studies, comparative studies,
travel research and fact-checking.
