We would like to introduce to you the Third World Network Features, a features service that deals with Third World affairs and development issues. It is operated by the Third World Network.

Third World Network Features are written mainly by top journalists, writers and thinkers in the Third World.

The features service which was inaugurated in 1985 covers a wide range of issues and topics which include economics, finance, basic needs, environment and culture, as well as political developments.

The emphasis of the features is on providing background analysis of structures which form the basis of many current problems facing the Third World today.

Our features service aims to become a voice for non-governmental organizations in the Third World as many of our stories are collected from groups working at grassroots level, offering fresh perspectives as seen by people involved in community activities and development. This is possible because the Third World Network enjoys a close relationship with NGOs in many countries.
