Global development basically means that all countries all over the world have the same and abundant economic, social and cultural levels. It is meant to simply fight poverty and other social evils like child abuse and human rights abuse too.
Very many organisations have been formed to ensure that the global development strategies are implemented. The United Nations is one of the most common agencies that are recognised all over the world in ensuring that global development is reached. The united nation is made up of 192 member countries. All the members are expected to be peace loving countries to sign the treaty. The United Nations begun in 1942 when the president of Franklin Roosevelt brought together 26 countries that signed a treaty to fight against communism during the Second World War II. Since then the membership has increased to date and the main aim now is to fight global poverty and enhance global development.
