Un meilleur avenir pour le Mali dépendra du dialogue et de la confiance entre tous les acteurs. Nous l’atteindrons en nous alignant sur la vision stratégique, les priorités et les politiques publiques définies par le gouvernement malien, soucieux d’un processus inclusif dans l’esprit de l’Accord d’Alger.
The OECD is well placed to contribute to global follow-up on the sustainable development goals (SDGs) with its range of measurement, country assessment, peer review and peer learning mechanisms. Indeed, its data, expertise, and convening power can serve as a GPS for SDG implementation.
This report goes deep into questions about how to strengthen the participation of small and medium-sized enterprises and low-income developing countries in global value chains.
In the last decade, the world has made important progress in fighting extreme poverty, but we still have a long way to go. I just came back from New York, where the international community adopted the Sustainable Development Goals. Enthusiasm was in abundance, but the debate was pretty sobering.
I am excited by the launch of this partnership. It can play a crucial role in driving a data revolution that improves lives and helps us make the right decisions to speed our progress towards the Sustainable Development Goals.
Africa will play a make-or-break role in how the Sustainable Development Goals story plays out. Under the leadership of the African Union, Africans have already adopted their own development roadmap.
Tackling human development means tackling rural development – the two go hand in hand. We used to think the solution was rapid urbanisation and industrialisation. Now, we know that in well-performing economies, rural areas tend to be resilient, contributing to national wealth and social stability.
We now have fewer than 800 weeks to eradicate poverty, everywhere. That’s 800 weeks to lift 800 million people out of extreme poverty. This is an aspiration which I firmly believe the international community can deliver.
Now we have agreed that in less than 800 weeks we will lift the remaining 800 million people out of extreme poverty. It is a job for everyone. The Sustainable Development Goals apply to every person in every society, in every country – rich and poor.
The Asia-Pacific region is and will remain the engine of the world economy going forward – it accounts for 57% of global GDP, 46% of world trade and more than a third of the global population – and there is much to celebrate about APEC’s achievements in recent years. However, APEC economies are not immune from risk.
