IFFD Paper 63. Getting bigger or getting better?

What is the relation between development, expansion, prosperity and education? A superficial reading of the 2030 Agenda can give the impression that eradicating poverty is what really matters, as if sustainability had to do only with the present generation.


The International Federation for Family Development (IFFD) is a non-governmental, independent, and non-profit federation, whose primary mission is to support families through training.

IFFD programs are based on a participative methodology, the objective of which is to help parents to improve their relationships with their spouses and develop their child-rearing skills, in order to confront the daily challenges faced by families with confidence, flexibility and good humour.
