Overview :

As a part of the UN development agenda, UNDP Sweden published the book Blir Världen Bättre? (Is the world getting better?)  for the first time in 2005. The publication is written by Staffan Landin and Mikael Botnen Diamant and uses up-to-date statistics to describe positive developments in the world over the past few decades. The book describes the progress of the Millennium Development Goals and the Global Goals and how they light a path to a sustainable future for both people and planet.

Blir Världen Bättre? has become a flagship UNDP product and much-appreciated teaching material among both teachers and students. Since 2005 the book has been published in seven updated and revised editions and hard copies have been distributed to upper secondary schools all over Sweden as teaching material.
