Abstract: The purpose of this article is to outline the core principles of Integrative Improvement (II) in comparison with current development approaches, describe key features of II and briefly comment on II in relation to the Sustainable Livelihoods (SL) approach of the United Kingdom Department for International Development (http://www.livelihoods.org/). The current development approaches considered are those selected in 6.1 of the SL Guidance Sheets, namely:- “• Country-level Development Strategies, for example: Poverty Reduction Strategy Papers, Comprehensive Development Frameworks and National Strategies for Sustainable Development; • Medium-Term Expenditure Frameworks; • Sector-Wide Approaches; • Governance and Rights-based Approaches.”

Note: Type of Document - pdf; pages: 9. 9 pages that introduce a new bottom-up approach to economic development and governance that I call Integrative Improvement. Supporting discussion of related theories, bibliography, training modules and templates for implementation of the new approach are available at www.integrative-thinking.com . Integrative Improvement is offered as a pathway to what I term Integrative Capitalism and Integrative Democracy.
