The PARIS21 Annual Meetings fall shortly after the UN Statistical Commission where we expect to agree on an indicator framework for measuring the SDGs. This year we have organised a “tradeshow” where various partners can showcase and present their existing or new projects and initiatives that contribute to implementing the Sustainable Development Goals agenda.
La publication intitulée « A New Rural Development Paradigm for the 21st Century: A toolkit for developing countries » répertorie les éléments à prendre en compte pour concevoir des stratégies à l’appui du développement de moyens de subsistance résilients et durables dans les régions rurales.
The publication Revenue Statistics in Africa is jointly undertaken by the OECD Centre for Tax Policy and Administration and the OECD Development Centre, the African Union Commission (AUC) and the African Tax Administration Forum (ATAF). It compiles comparable tax revenue and non-tax revenue statistics for eight countries in Africa: Cameroon, Côte d'Ivoire, Mauritius, Morocco, Rwanda, Senegal, South Africa and Tunisia. The model is the OECD Revenue Statistics database which is a fundamental reference, backed by a well-established methodology, for OECD member countries. Extending the OECD methodology to African countries enables comparisons about tax levels and tax structures on a consistent basis, both among African economies and with OECD, Latin American, Caribbean and Asian economies.
Les recettes fiscales des pays d’Afrique progressent en proportion du revenu national, selon la première édition des Statistiques des recettes publiques en Afrique.
Three billion people live in rural areas in developing countries. Conditions for them are worse than for their urban counterparts when measured by almost any development indicator, from extreme poverty, to child mortality and access to electricity and sanitation. And the gulf is widening, contributing to large-scale migration to urban areas. This situation exists despite half a century of rural development theories and approaches, and despite the global momentum built around the Millennium Development Goals between 2000 and 2015. Without greater progress on rural development, it is unlikely that the new Sustainable Development Goals will be met. This book calls for a new paradigm for rural development that is equipped to meet the challenges and harness the opportunities of the 21st century – including climate change, demographic shifts, international competition and fast-moving technological change.
L’OCDE organise l‘Édition 2016 du Forum mondial sur le développement sur le thème « De l'engagement à la mise en œuvre des Objectifs de développement durable : politiques, données et financement ».
This year’s Forum will allow us to join forces and discuss ways in which we can make the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development a reality. Policies, data and finance are key for the SDG implementation agenda.
We face the challenge of achieving the Sustainable Development Goals in a world faced with multiple and diverse forms of crisis. What do the SDGs mean for countries where families have to flee their homes to escape conflict, where rising sea levels threaten lives, livelihoods and infrastructure, and where economies are devastated by the impact of epidemics or terrorism?
The Sustainable Development Goals are universal, multi-dimensional, and ambitious. To achieve them we need an integrated framework that promotes a growth path that respects the environment, and whose benefits are shared by all, not only by the privileged few.
We stand together at a critical juncture. Following three decades of extraordinary economic development, China is transitioning to a more stable and sustainable growth path – the “New Normal”.
