Sustainable livelihood security must be provided for the poor. Achieving this goal requires action at three levels: asset (resource) reform, employment strategy, and development ethos.

Economic policy should be based on full-cost accounting which incorporates social and environmental costs and benefits.

Such policies will support worker rights, debt relief, and local control over resources within a framework of broader responsibility to share and protect resources.
