    Reforming Sanitation in Armenia - Towards a National Strategy

    This report assesses the state of Armenia’s sanitation services, which are in poor shape, and proposes ways forward for reforming the sector by: ensuring equitable access by all and identifying solutions that work for the poorest and most remote communities; generating economies of scale and scope, and reducing both investment and operational costs for the efficient delivery of sanitation services; and moving towards sustainable cost recovery for the sanitation sector, by identifying how much funding can be mobilised from within the sector and how much external transfers are required. The state of Armenia’s sanitation services are inadequate, with 51% of the population in rural areas using unimproved facilities, causing direct damage to the environment and exposing inhabitants to health risks, and better access but degraded sewerage-system infrastructure in urban areas, posing health hazards due to potential cross-contamination between sewage and drinking water. According to preliminary estimates, EUR 2.6 billion of investments will be required to meet Armenia’s sanitation needs, with approximately EUR 1 billion needing to be spent in the next 7 to 10 years. Given the country’s current economic situation, this investment will have to be spread over time and targeted to avoid further deterioration of infrastructure and increase of the financing gap.

    Water Risk Hotspots for Agriculture

    Agriculture is expected to face increasing water risks that will impact production, markets, trade and food security - risks that can be mitigated with targeted policy actions on water hotspots. This report develops the hotspot approach, provides an application at the global scale, and presents a mitigation policy action plan. The People’s Republic of China, India and the United States are identified as countries facing the greatest water risks for agriculture production globally.A global simulation shows that, in the absence of action, water risks in Northeast China, Northwest India and the Southwest United States in particular could have significant production, price and trade consequences. Agriculture water risks could also result in broader socio-economic and food security concerns. Farmers, agro food companies, and governments can all play a role in responding to water risks at hotspot locations. A three-tier policy action plan is proposed to confront water risk hotspots,  encompassing targeted responses, adapted national policies, strengthened market integration and international collaboration.

    Interactions entre politiques publiques, migrations et développement en Haïti

    Interactions entre politiques publiques, migrations et développement en Haïti est le fruit d'un projet mené conjointement par l'Union européenne et le Centre de développement de l'OCDE, en collaboration avec l'Institut interuniversitaire de recherches et de développement (INURED). Ce projet avait pour objectif de fournir aux décideurs des données probantes sur l’impact des migrations sur des secteurs spécifiques – marché du travail, agriculture, éducation, et investissement et services financiers – et, à l’inverse, de montrer quel est l’impact des politiques sectorielles sur les migrations. Le rapport aborde trois dimensions du cycle migratoire : l'émigration, les transferts de fonds et le retour.

    Les résultats des travaux empiriques confirment que les migrations contribuent au développement d'Haïti. Cependant, le potentiel des migrations n’est pas pleinement exploité dans le pays, notamment parce que les décideurs ne prennent pas suffisamment en compte les migrations dans leurs domaines d’action respectifs. Haïti doit donc adopter un programme d’action plus cohérent pour intégrer les migrations dans les stratégies de développement, améliorer les mécanismes de coordination et renforcer la coopération internationale. Cela permettra d’accroître la contribution des migrations au développement du pays.

    Production Transformation Policy Reviews - Actions to Succeed in a Changing World

    As countries are increasingly concerned with the future of globalisation and industry and their role in global production networks, defining and implementing policies for economic transformation that deliver on the competitive, social, and environmental goals has become paramount. The complex and fast-changing global economic landscape calls for a better understanding of the ongoing technological and industrial re-organisation, to enable policy makers to better plan and act for the present and the future. The Production Transformation Policy Reviews (PTPRs) are the policy tool for assessment and guidance on strategies for economic transformation. Developed within the framework of the OECD Initiative for Policy Dialogue on Global Value Chains, Production Transformation and Development, the PTPRs provide a guiding framework to inform policy choices on competitiveness.This document clarifies the rationale for the PTPRs as a policy assessment and guidance tool, presents the conceptual framework, clarifies the value proposition, and provides information about the review process.

    Interactions entre politiques publiques, migrations et développement au Maroc

    Interactions entre politiques publiques, migrations et développement au Maroc est le fruit d’un projet mené conjointement par l’Union européenne et le Centre de développement de l’OCDE, en collaboration avec le ministère chargé des Marocains résidant à l'étranger et des affaires de la migration (MCMREAM) et Thalys Conseil S.A.R.L. Ce projet avait pour objectif de fournir aux décideurs des données probantes sur l’impact des migrations sur des secteurs spécifiques – marché du travail, agriculture, éducation et investissement et services financiers – et, à l’inverse, de montrer quel est l’impact des politiques sectorielles sur les migrations. Le rapport aborde trois dimensions du cycle migratoire : l’émigration, les transferts de fonds et le retour.

    Les résultats des travaux empiriques confirment que les migrations contribuent au développement du Maroc. Cependant, le potentiel des migrations pourrait être davantage exploité dans le pays, notamment en prenant plus en compte les migrations dans les domaines d’action de plusieurs ministères. Le Maroc doit continuer ses démarches pour adopter un programme d’action plus cohérent et mieux intégrer les migrations dans les stratégies de développement. Cela permettra d’accroître la contribution des migrations au développement du pays. La nouvelle stratégie d’immigration et d’asile lancée en 2013, le programme Sharaka ainsi que plusieurs autres programmes actuels, visent effectivement à renforcer la politique migratoire dans le pays, et permettront à terme de consolider les bonnes pratiques d’une politique migratoire volontaire, humaine et  respectant les droits de l’homme.
