Integrated development is described, including definitions, origins and its value as an improvement in development activities. Spanning all sectors, worldviews, environments and circumstances, integrated development is introduced as an ideal towards which responsible development practitioners and agencies are moving. As it encompasses all aspects of existence it necessarily includes spiritual and other esoteric considerations, which on the surface may not seem to accord with modern worldviews. By contrast, the paper shows that reflection on the ideal reveals it as the culmination of human insight, experience and scholarship. In describing a rising awareness of integrated thinking, the paper also introduces the World Prize for International Integrated Development.
