    How will the world raise the $4 trillion needed to pay for the SDGs and can philanthropy help?

    If the global community doesn’t find a way of increasing available finance by a factor of ten, reaching the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) remains a pipedream. Philanthropy is well placed to make a critical contribution by helping to trigger the massive increase in private capital. This is more critical than ever, now that the world has made such a fanfare about achieving the SDGs by 2030.

    Multi-dimensional Review of Kazakhstan - Volume 1. Initial Assessment

    Kazakhstan’s economy and society have undergone deep transformations since the country declared independence in 1991. Kazakhstan’s growth performance since 2000 has been impressive, averaging almost 8% per annum in real terms and leading to job creation and progress in the well-being of its citizens. Extractive industries play an important role in the dynamism of the economy, but sources of growth beyond natural resource sectors remain underexploited. In the social arena, dimensions of well-being beyond incomes and jobs have not kept pace with economic growth.
    Kazakhstan has set itself the goal of becoming one of the 30 most developed countries in the world by 2050. To sustain rapid, inclusive and sustainable growth and social progress, Kazakhstan will need to overcome a number of significant challenges. Natural-resource dependency, the concentration of economic clout and a fragile and underdeveloped financial sector limit diversification and economic dynamism. Widespread corruption still affects multiple state functions, undermines the business environment, meritocracy and entrepreneurial spirit. More generally, the state has limited capacity to fulfil some of its functions, which affects the delivery of public services like health and education, as well as the protection of the environment and the generation of skills.

    Pourquoi ont-ils coupé l’Afrique en deux ?

    L’histoire coloniale a fait de l’Afrique une incroyable mosaïque constituée aujourd’hui de 54 pays et 3 territoires, dont 14 n’ont aucun accès à la mer, 22 ont moins de 10 millions d’habitants ; autant de records mondiaux. Conscients de ces difficultés, les africains se sont dit qu’il valait mieux accepter la balkanisation du continent, plutôt que de voir se multiplier les conflits territoriaux et les guerres.

    EU-Latin America: Post-Occidental relationship?

    Today more than ever, the European Union and Latin America face the opportunity to advance a post-Occidental partnership. Already, the two regions share the same culture, speak the same language in part and promote the same values and principles enshrined in democracy. Such mutual bi-regional respect and tolerance serve as a clear counter-ideology to the surge of extremism and religious fanaticism that we see.

    On Deaton and development: consumption, poverty and well-being

    The Royal Sweden Academy of Sciences titled Angus Deaton’s Nobel prize “Consumption, Poverty and Welfare.” But what is the logic behind a Nobel for Angus Deaton? Deaton’s greatest contribution is to integrate statistics, sociology and economics. More than the sum of his isolated original contributions, the prize can be explained by Deaton’s vast work taken altogether.
