The G20 helped steer the world through the worst of the economic storm; now it must show it can set in motion a new governance for the post-crisis world. That's a task our organisation stands ready to help with, says the OECD's G20 Sherpa, Gabriela Ramos.
How can the economic recovery be strengthened while laying the foundations for a stronger, cleaner and fairer world? As decision-makers gather in Davos, OECD Secretary-General Angel Gurría highlights key challenges for the year ahead.
Erik Solheim took the lead of the OECD Development Assistance Committee (DAC) in January 2013, a position to which he was unanimously elected in October 2012.
For 50 years now, the DAC has grouped the world's main donors, defining and monitoring global standards in key areas of development. Visit our website to learn more.
While New Zealand is a comparatively small donor, it boasts an internationally-recognised aid programme with specific understanding of the unique Pacific context. It is seen as a flexible and predictable humanitarian donor.
During his mission to Washington, Angel Gurría will give a press conference with Arne Duncan, U.S. Secretary of Education, for the presentation of the PISA results. He will also discuss a range of key policy issues with government officials, leading policy makers and business representatives.
In his remarks, A. Gurría said that the middle sectors in Latin America are closer to the disadvantaged than to the affluent in many aspects.
Aunque la clase media en América Latina está creciendo y comienza a ser un motor para el progreso económico, continúa siendo económicamente vulnerable en comparación con los países de alto ingreso de la OCDE, de acuerdo al Secretario General de la OCDE.
Portugal will need to triple development assistance over the coming five years if it is to meet an EU target of giving 0.7% of gross national income (GNI) to aid by 2015.
Germany has been one of the world’s largest bilateral donors for the past two decades, but it spent only 0.35% of its national income on official development assistance (ODA) in 2009.
