Weitere Informationen
 Human needs are universal and diverse, they exist at different levels in society and all should be taken into account in addressing the best interests of populations around the world. There are concerns that attention may not necessarily promote successful interventions, if the approaches and strategies employed do not include an appreciation of the multi-dimensional nature and causes of need.

The main aim of this book is to provide in-depth discussions on the subject of human need(s) in the 21st century in Botswana and Germany, elucidating new and innovative approaches to salient issues among different population groups. This book is one of the first systematic efforts in studying human need(s) from a perspective of an industrialised economy in Europe and a fast growing economy in Sub-Saharan Africa.

This book is timely as it is addressing human needs from multiple perspectives of Africa and Europe. Given that the chapters conclude with recommendations for interventions, the book will also provide lessons for Germany and Botswana as well as countries with the similar socio-economic status.
