    Second High-Level Meeting of the Global Partnership for Effective Development Co-operation - opening remarks

    The urgency of sustainable development is evident in all countries. Shifts in wealth, power and growth challenge traditional development models. At the same time, we see new players, new ideas and new sources of finance. Developing countries are increasingly using taxes and remittances to finance their own development. In Africa alone in absolute numbers, tax revenues dwarf official development assistance by more than ten times.

    Briefing on "States of Fragility 2016"

    As we strengthen our resolve to address the refugee crisis, the focus on providing short-term assistance, and medium-term resettlement options must not distract us from working on the longer-term issues at the heart of what drives these people from their homes in the first place: fear, conflict, and violence.
