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.

The article contains general information on youth-related issues in El Salvador.
Following the end of the civil war in 1992, El Salvador has undergone substantial economic, political, and social change. Young people aged 15-24, accounting for 20.8% of the total population in 2014, play a significant role in the development process of a country that is characterized by one of the highest criminal rates in the world.
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”.
This year’s Outlook focuses specifically on China and Latin America as development partners in transition. Despite their geographic distance, China and Latin America are closely connected through trade and financial ties. China is now the region’s second largest import source and third largest export destination, and the largest trading partner of Brazil, Chile and Peru.
