    Tackling rural development is essential for achieving the Sustainable Development Goals, says new OECD Development Centre report

    With the number expected to increase until 2028, 3.4 billion people currently live in rural areas, with around 92% of the rural population located in developing countries. They are mainly concentrated in Asia and Africa. The situation is particularly fragile in sub-Saharan Africa, the only place where the number of poor has risen steadily in the last decade.

    A New Rural Development Paradigm for the 21st Century - A Toolkit for Developing Countries

    Three billion people live in rural areas in developing countries. Conditions for them are worse than for their urban counterparts when measured by almost any development indicator, from extreme poverty, to child mortality and access to electricity and sanitation. And the gulf is widening, contributing to large-scale migration to urban areas. This situation exists despite half a century of rural development theories and approaches, and despite the global momentum built around the Millennium Development Goals between 2000 and 2015. Without greater progress on rural development, it is unlikely that the new Sustainable Development Goals will be met. This book calls for a new paradigm for rural development that is equipped to meet the challenges and harness the opportunities of the 21st century – including climate change, demographic shifts, international competition and fast-moving technological change.

    2016 OECD Global Forum on Development : From commitment to implementation of the SDGs: better policies, data and financing are key

    While world leaders adopted the 2030 Agenda for SDGs at the United Nations in 2015, 2016 marks the start of implementation. Some 800 weeks are left to lift 800 million people out of poverty. Achieving this and the ambitious SDGs by 2030 will require bold leadership and effective governments together with new ideas and tools to advance simultaneously on the social, economic and environmental fronts.

    We face the challenge of achieving the Sustainable Development Goals in a world faced with multiple and diverse forms of crisis.
