    Gender Equality in the Pacific Alliance - Promoting Women's Economic Empowerment

    The equal inclusion of women in economic life is a key driver of economic growth throughout the world, including the Pacific Alliance countries of Chile, Colombia, Mexico and Peru. Talent is lost, and future growth suffers, when women do not have the same opportunities as men to reach their full potential in the labour market. All countries of the world have work to do to advance the equality agenda, and Chile, Colombia, Mexico, and Peru have much to do. While girls and women in the Pacific Alliance are progressing on the path to gender equality and inclusive growth, significant roadblocks remain.

    Perspectives de l'emploi de l'OCDE 2016

    L’édition 2016 des Perspectives de l’emploi de l’OCDE propose un examen approfondi de l’évolution récente du marché du travail et de ses perspectives à court terme dans les pays de l'OCDE. Le chapitre 1 propose une vue d’ensemble des évolutions récentes du marché du travail en s’intéressant en particulier aux jeunes les plus vulnérables qui sont peu qualifiés, déscolarisés, sans emploi et ne suivant aucune formation. Ce groupe a augmenté ces dernières années dans plusieurs pays de l’OCDE et les gouvernements devront prendre des mesures efficaces s’ils veulent arriver à l’objectif récemment adopté par les pays du G20 de réduire de 15 % la part des jeunes vulnérables d’ici à 2025. Le chapitre 2 s’intéresse à l’utilisation des compétences au travail : les pays font-ils suffisamment pour s’assurer que les travailleurs sont à même de faire pleinement usage de leurs compétences au travail ? Le chapitre 3 étudie les effets à court terme des réformes structurelles sur l’emploi et identifie les stratégies réussies qui permettent de réduire les coûts de transition. Le chapitre 4 examine la façon de réduire les disparités entre hommes et femmes sur le marché du travail dans les économies émergentes et propose une réponse politique globale à ce problème. Une annexe statistique complète les analyses et recommandations présentées dans ce rapport.

    Governance of Land Use in Poland - The Case of Lodz

    Lodz – the third largest city in Poland – is undertaking several major projects that have the potential to significantly reinvigorate the economy. Following the collapse of its traditional manufacturing industries in the late 1990s, Lodz went through a period of economic decline. A series of infrastructure investments and new developments are presently transforming its city centre and increasing its transportation connectivity. Coherent land-use practices across the areas where people live and work will be critical for the city and its surrounding communities to develop in a socially, environmentally, and fiscally sustainable way. This case study of the governance of land use in Lodz illustrates many promising practices and offers guidance on how to make the governance structure and planning system more coherent and robust both in Lodz, and in Poland more generally. This is the first in a series of five case studies on the governance of land use, which will culminate in a synthesis report to be published in 2017.

    Boosting the Power Sector in Sub-Saharan Africa - China's Involvement

    Lack of energy access and frequent electricity shortages are major impediments to economic growth in sub-Saharan Africa. Over 635 million people live without electricity in the region. Because the overall electrification rate remains at less than one-third of the population, the region needs increased investment in the power sector.

    As part of their increasing activity in overseas markets, companies from the People’s Republic of China have significantly enhanced their engagement in Africa in the last 15 years, covering a wide range of sectors, including the electricity industry. Chinese-built projects and financial support from China are contributing to power sector development, extending energy access and facilitating economic growth.

    This report analyses China’s engagement in the sub-Saharan Africa power sector, including the key drivers underlying Chinese investments. An overview of Chinese projects (generation, transmission and distribution) during the 2010-20 period is provided in this first-ever consolidated effort to map them.

    The report identifies the key Chinese stakeholders and assesses their impact on policies affecting energy access, economic development and financing modalities. Two case studies examine Chinese investment at the country level in Ghana and Ethiopia.
