Part of the "2015: Where will we be?" portal created in 2005, this glossary gives short definitions to dozens of terms related to development.
Glossaries of Economic Terms in Development Economics
This glossary accompanies a site which introduces development economics issues in the context of a "Virtual" Zambia. The definitions here are mostly of economic terms, with some related political and historical terms. Each is given a short definition. The original site is no longer running, so this link is to Archive.org's copy.
This glossary gives many succinct, cross-referenced definitions as well as a bibliography, picture gallery and a few notes on the origin of terms. Some references are linked to journal articles in the JSTOR archive.
