Redefining African Migration

Project Syndicate  
Policy Initiative: Inclusive Solutions on Migration
5. October 2018

Images of desperate people on the move have blinded Westerners, in particular, to the fact that people have always moved, and that migration is necessary and beneficial for human development. Nowhere is this fact more relevant today than in Africa. Project Syndicate | Redefining African Migration

Does Premature Deindustrialization Matter ? The Role of Manufacturing versus Services in Development

The World Bank  
Policy Initiative: Innovation and Economic Diversification
28. September 2018

The shares of manufacturing in value added and employment across a range of developing economies peaked at lower levels of per capita income compared with their high-income, early-industrializer precursors. Based on the statistical analysis of input-output tables and firm-level data, the paper contributes to the discussion on whether this "premature deindustrialization" matters by showing that: a) the premature declining share of the manufacturing sector is largely not driven by a statistical artifice whereby what was earlier subsumed in manufacturing value…

Emerging challenges and shifting paradigms: New perspectives on international cooperation for development

Economic Commission for Latin America and the Caribbean  
Policy Initiative: Innovation and Economic Diversification
28. September 2018

Looking through the lens of “development in transition”, this document, jointly prepared by ECLAC and the OECD Development Centre, notes that some developing and emerging economies have increased their levels of national income yet still face daunting multidimensional development challenges. This calls for a more comprehensive approach to international cooperation that, combined with effective domestic policies, can better support countries as they move up the income ladder and seek ways to turn income gains into lasting development gains. The analysis…

Setting the Stage for the Green Climate Fund’s First Replenishment

World Resource Institute  
Policy Initiative: Climate Action

It is therefore crucial that the GCF succeed in its mission. However, the GCF is currently facing a crisis of confidence, illustrated most recently by the unproductive GCF Board meeting in July 2018 and the departure of its Executive Director. Restoring confidence…

In this report, IISD analyses the possible development of innovative approaches to linking CPIs. If jurisdictions around the world are interested in enhancing cohesion between various CPIs, what kind of institution(s) might be designed—beyond or building on existing linked instruments like the Western Climate Initiative (WCI) and the Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative (RGGI)—to aid their efforts? What cooperative arrangements would be best suited to develop common or reciprocal standards to ensure environmental integrity and robust accounting, share market infrastructure and…

International Monetary Fund
