OECD Forum 2011: New Paradigms for Development


Since we made our historic commitment to end poverty by 2015, gains have been uneven.


Absent a major push in the next five years, we will fail to meet our commitment to the world’s poorest. The financial and economic crisis is not an excuse. While we focus much of our attention on the crucial task of consolidating the economic recovery, we should not lose sight of the major challenges to development. 



The efficient and fair mobilisation of additional and innovative sources of financing for development depends more and more on enhanced international cooperation. At the same time we must strengthen our collective efforts against tax havens, weak transfer pricing regimes, and illicit financial flows in developing countries. They represent billions of dollars that could otherwise have gone to support development.
