Prepared at the request of the City of Venice, this report explores the implications for Venice of the adoption in 2014 of new legislation on the governance of metropolitan cities. It builds on the analysis of the OECD Territorial Review of Venice (2010), analysing a number of different "functional geographies" of the larger urban region centred on Venice. The report argues that, although the new legislation offers some opportunities for Venice to address local challenges, it is important to look beyond the Metropolitan City of Venice as defined in the new legislation and to pursue greater governance co-ordination across the larger city region that encompasses Padua, Treviso and Venice (PaTreVe). Co-operation in the fields of transport, land use, environmental protection and water resources management is particularly important; there are also significant opportunities in the fields of culture and tourism. The report also outlines a possible way forward for governance co-operation at the level of PaTreVe.
This workshop brought together over 85 participants from the environment and the development communities to discuss challenges and opportunities for mainstreaming biodiversity into development at the national and sector level, and to better manage for results.
The report provides an outline of recent and likely future urbanisation trends and discusses the consequences. The world is in the middle of an urbanisation process that will cause urbanisation rates to rise from low double digit rates to more than 80% by the end of the century. It argues that this is both a great opportunity and a great challenge, as decisions taken today will affect the lifes of people for a long time to come. The report aims at explaining why cities exist, and what can make them prosperous and function well. It also discusses whether cities are good for residents, for the countries they are located in and for the global environment. The report argues that cities exist and grow because they are a source of economic prosperity and offer amenities that benefit their residents. It concludes that urbanisation is a process that needs to be shaped by policy makers to ensure that all benefit from it.
Embracing green growth can secure strong, stable and sustainable development. An increasing number of developing countries have formulated and/or implemented innovative policies to pursue green growth, notably in Africa. Zambia, in particular, is committed to drawing up an Inclusive Green Growth Strategy (IGGS) that builds upon a nationally-defined and comprehensive definition of green growth.
En 2012, 28% du total de l'aide publique au développement (APD) a été constitué de contributions de base (non affectées) aux organisations multilatérales, ou APD multilatérale.
The January 2015 Arab-DAC Dialogue on Development brings together at a senior level development co-operation providers from Arab and DAC countries and international institutions to discuss how to integrate the new Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) into our development programmes and policies and to identify action to support developing countries in their efforts to achieve these goals.
L’Évaluation des activités de coopération au développement est l'un des domaines où l'influence du CAD sur la politique et la pratique peut le plus facilement être observée. Avoir un système d'évaluation qui est bien établi est l'une des conditions requise pour être membre du CAD. Chaque examen par les pairs examine la mise en place et la gestion de la fonction d'évaluation, en utilisant les normes et standards élaborés par le Réseau du CAD sur l'évaluation du développement.
Africa has made significant progress in recent years but important challenges to African development remain that we can break down into three linked areas. Let’s call them the “three i’s”: interconnectedness, investment, and inclusiveness.
