Integral Development

Integral development is the general name given to a host of policies that work in tandem to foster sustainable development in both developing and underdeveloped countries. Because the issue of development has become so essential in recent years, especially as the nations of the world become more integrated and interconnected, the OAS has an entire secretariat devoted to this area. The Executive Secretariat for Integral Development works to support, facilitate, and foster integral development in the member states in coordination with measures to strengthen democracy, multidimensional security, and the promotion of human rights.
