The price of development and the cost of inaction (2015)

marzo 2016
El objetivo del desarrollo no es crear riqueza por la riqueza misma, o para beneficio de unos pocos, sino construir sociedades mejores donde haya una mayor inclusión. Sentar las bases para que la gente prospere (o sobreviva después de un desastre) implica planificar e invertir, tanto en la esfera pública como privada.

Inversión de la diáspora en agricultura (DIA)

febrero 2016
Cada año los miembros de la diáspora mundial envían más de USD 450 000 millones en remesas a sus familias en países en desarrollo. Por medio de estas remesas, los miembros de la diáspora desempeñan un papel fundamental en el desarrollo de sus respectivos países de origen fomentando las inversiones, el turismo, el comercio, las actividades filantrópicas, la transferencia de conocimientos y las relaciones transfronterizas. Aunque se calcula que el volumen de remesas que se invierte en fines agrícolas en las zonas rurales es relativamente bajo (hasta un 5 por ciento del total), esta cantidad sigue siendo cuatro veces superior a la AOD que se destina a la agricultura.

Country-Level Policy Engagement - a review of experience

febrero 2016
Policies affect every dimension of the institutional and legal context in which poor rural people pursue their livelihoods; they shape the world they live in and the economic opportunities open to them. Supportive policies can go a long way towards providing the conditions in which people can lift themselves out of poverty. Conversely, policies that do not create opportunities, or that exclusively reflect the interests of other economic players, can be an insuperable barrier or an unbridgeable gulf – roadblocks barring the way out of the poverty trap. Thus, an enabling country-level policy environment for agriculture and rural development is not only critical for effective implementation of IFAD-supported projects, but also a precondition for enabling rural people to overcome poverty. As IFAD shifts its focus from exclusively project-specific goals to making a broader contribution to rural poverty reduction, engaging in country-level policy processes is becoming an increasingly important activity within country programmes, supported by dedicated services and products, and an important mechanism through which to scale up proven approaches and lessons learned at the project level.

The programme is sponsored by Member States interested in investing in young, university-trained nationals of their own country or other countries, for employment in organizations of the United Nations system.
