    Latin American Economic Outlook 2019 - Development in Transition

    Latin America and the Caribbean has seen remarkable socio-economic progress since the beginning of the century. The macroeconomic situation of individual countries has strengthened, living standards have improved, and poverty and inequality have declined. Yet large structural vulnerabilities remain and new ones have emerged. Many of these are linked to countries’ transition to higher income and development levels. The Latin American Economic Outlook 2019: Development in Transition (LEO 2019) presents a fresh analytical approach in the region. It assesses four development traps relating to productivity, social vulnerability, institutions and the environment. It outlines local opportunities for responding to those traps and seeks ways of improving global public goods to reinforce national agendas, all in the context of the United Nations 2030 Agenda. LEO 2019 calls for improving domestic capacities and adopting a new vision of international co-operation as a facilitator to support those efforts.

    Making Decentralisation Work - A Handbook for Policy-Makers

    This report offers a comprehensive overview of decentralisation policies and reforms in OECD countries and beyond. Sometimes called a 'silent' or 'quiet' revolution, decentralisation is among the most important reforms of the past 50 years. The report argues that decentralisation outcomes – in terms of democracy, efficiency, accountability, regional and local development – depend greatly on the way it is designed and implemented. Making the most of decentralisation systems is particularly crucial in the context of a 'geography of discontent' and growing divides between places that feel left behind by globalisation and technological change and those that may benefit from the opportunities offered by megatrends. The report identifies 10 guidelines for making decentralisation work and allowing it to be conducive to regional development. Beyond the guidelines, the report proposes concrete tools for policy-makers, including detailed sets of recommendations, checklists, pitfalls to avoid and examples of good practices, both in unitary and federal countries.

    SIGI 2019 Global Report - Transforming Challenges into Opportunities

    Over the past decade, the Social Institutions and Gender Index (SIGI) has consistently shown that governments need to look at discriminatory laws, social norms and practices to achieve gender equality and promote women’s empowerment. This 2019 global report provides an overview of the main outcomes of the SIGI in relation to women and the family, their physical integrity, access to productive and financial resources and their civic rights. Building on these outcomes, this report provides a set of policy recommendations to enhance governments’ efforts to deliver their gender-equality commitments through a three-pronged approach: starting with legal reforms and transformative gender policies, enforcing laws through community mobilisation and empowerment, and learning about the efficiency of policy through monitoring.

    Coopération pour le développement 2018 - Agir ensemble pour n'oublier personne

    Lorsque les États membres des Nations Unies ont approuvé l’Agenda 2030 pour le développement durable en 2015, ils ont convenu que les objectifs et les cibles du développement durable devaient être atteints pour toutes les nations et tous les groupes de la société. Les gouvernements et les autres parties prenantes de l’agenda 2030 assument ainsi l'ambition de ne laisser personne de côté. Cette ambition apparaît de plus en plus souvent dans les politiques de développement, les priorités de la communauté internationale et les actions de plaidoyer de la société civile. Comment garantir, dans les faits, que personne ne soit laissé de côté ? Les décideurs politiques, la société civile et les entreprises demandent plus de clarté. Concrètement, qu’est-ce que cela implique pour la conception et la mise en œuvre des politiques économiques, sociales et environnementales ? Comment adapter les politiques de coopération au développement, la programmation et les mécanismes de responsabilisation ? Qu'est-ce que les gouvernements, les partenaires au développement et la communauté internationale devraient faire différemment pour que la poursuite des objectifs de développement durable améliore la vie de tous, et en premier lieu celle des plus défavorisés ? Le Rapport Coopération pour le développement 2018 : Agir ensemble pour n’oublier personne répond à ces questions et à bien d'autres. Il s’appuie sur les données les plus récentes pour montrer ce qu‘être « laissé de côté » veut dire. Tout en adoptant un large éventail de perspectives, l’ouvrage tire les leçons des politiques publiques, des pratiques et des partenariats qui fonctionnent le mieux. Il propose un cadre d’action holistique et innovant pour garantir que les politiques et les outils de coopération au développement soient à la hauteur de l’enjeu : n’oublier personne.
