It is stated in the United Nations Declaration on the Right to Development, adopted by the General Assembly in its Resolution 41/128 of 4 December 1986,in its article 8, paragraph 1the following: “States should undertake, at the national level, all necessary measures for the realization of the right to development and shall ensure, inter alia, equality of opportunity for all in their access to basic resources, education, health services, food, housing, employment and the fair distribution of income. Effective measures should be undertaken to ensure that women have an active role in the development process. Appropriate economic and social reforms should be carried out with a view to eradicating all social injustices.”
 
Besides this, the United Nations established the Millennium Development Goals to be achieved by the year 2015 that considered among the 8 goals these: eradicate extreme poverty and hunger, achieve universal primary education, promote gender equality and empower women, reduce child mortality. Again in January this year the United Nations established the Sustainable Development Goals to be achieved by the year 2030 that considered among the 17 goals to be achieved these: No poverty, Zero hunger, Good health and well-being, quality education, gender equality, decent work and economic growth, reduced inequalities.
 
In that regard states should develop policies that can provide the basic resources mentioned in the first paragraph and that are also the objectives of the United Nations Development Goals. In this report a presentation will be made of the policies that my country, Peru, is undertaking regarding the best practices for the realization of the right to development and how this experience can be shared to other countries. Also references will be made to some policies that China undertook and has been regarded a success in the achievement of some basic resources mentioned above.
