    International Business Forum

    The landscape of development finance has changed significantly since Monterrey in 2002 and Doha in 2008. There is now a clear understanding that the resource implications for the Sustainable Development Goals require not only scaled-up Official Development Assistance but also massive mobilisation of private investment and more effective domestic tax collection.

    Third International Conference on Financing for Development - Roundtable 1: Global partnership and the three dimensions of sustainable development

    The post-2015 sustainable development agenda will require the mobilisation of a wide array of domestic and international resources from both public and private actors. To deliver this we will have to work together at the multilateral level to ensure the strongest global partnership.

    Third International Conference on Financing for Development: Side event on strengthening international cooperation to mobilise and measure public finance for sustainable development

    This is an exciting year. We have the potential to put in place a global framework to both tackle the unfinished business of the MDGs, and go further, building a sustainable, inclusive and better future for all. And while success won’t depend only on our ability to find the money, it is clear that adequate resources will be a crucial ingredient if we are to realise our aspirations.

    Fifth Global Review of Aid for Trade

    The scope and ambition of the Sustainable Development Goals offer a unique opportunity for ending poverty, protecting our environment, and realising sustainable development for all. What brings us together today is the belief that trade will play a critical role in making this happen. It is, therefore, my great pleasure to present the joint OECD/WTO Aid for Trade at a Glance publication, which focuses on reducing trade costs.

    Transforming African Economies: Interconnectedness, Investment and Inclusiveness

    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.

    49th High-Level Meeting of the OECD Development Assistance Committee

    Headline aid figures only tell part of the picture. While aid volumes have risen globally, poor countries are losing out. Between 2010 and 2012, assistance from DAC members to the Least Developed Countries fell by 12%. Meanwhile, aid to upper-middle income countries rose steadily. Shouldn’t this be the other way round?
