La World Policy Conference 2013 qui vient d’être achevée, a rassmblé le 13-15 Décembre plus que 300 hautes personalités du monde entier (experts en relations internationales et hommes d’affaires) pour débatre sur la mondialisation, la gouvernance économique, environement etc..Cette année les thèmes sont focalisés sur deux questions:
– Ya-t-il un “modèle social’ durable spécifique pour l’Europe mais compatible avec la mondialisation ?
– la mise en oeuvre de l’ambitieux projet de l’union bancaire Européenne comme une étape essentiel pour la consolidation de la zone Euro.

Les  experts  et diplomates se sont penchés sur d’autres thèmes également notamment les forces et les faiblesses de l’Asie, l’Afrique et les crises du Moyen-Orient. L’article de Lesechos.fr résume bien la conférence sur Les 8 questions géopolitiques qui vont rythmer 2014

Another case on how Aid doesn’t work-new book

22/10/2013 Leave a comment

Another new case against Foreign Aid. This time from Angus Deaton, an expert on global poverty and foreign aid.  In his book  “The Great Escape: Health, Wealth, and the Origins of Inequality, published in September 2013, Mr. Deaton declares that foreign aid does more harm than good, it corrupts governments and rarely reaches the poor, he argues that it is high time for the paternalistic West to step away and allow the developing world to solve its own problems.

Angus Deaton is the Dwight D. Eisenhower Professor of Economics and International Affairs in the Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs and the Economics Department at Princeton University. His many books include The Analysis of Household Surveys and Economics and Consumer Behavior. He is a past president of the American Economic Association.I invite you to read the 12 October article from NY Times: A Surprising Case Against Foreign Aid.

Also I share the following 10 Insights on the Book.

The Canadian International Development Platform (CIDP)  of  The North-South Institute  has been producing rich data and analysis on Canada’s engagement with the developing world.

Here is one map of Aid projects by sector. Instead of education, healthcare, democratic participation and civil society, major Canadian aid goes to emergency services and “proving food”. Sadly. this explains, at least in part, why aid to Africa does not work…to help reach development goals.

Why we should care about women’s right to land ?

A Joint conversation of devex with Usaid, Chemonics, Tetra Tech and Reuters on land matters for women.  IFPRI senior researcher Agnes Quisumbing said that women’s land rights in many societies are derived through their male relatives. A husband’s death or divorce often results in a women’s loss of access to land. In fact, a large number of African Women are the ones who work in the field, produce the food and take care of feeding families.
