Development Assistance Committee High Level Meeting, 22-23 April 2003
OECD

With the international development community decisively embarking on implementing the commitments entered into in Doha, Monterrey and Johannesburg, the 2003 DAC HLM focused its attention on further progress to improve policies and strategies, practices and performance linked to achieving the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs), in particular through massive poverty reduction. Maintaining this focus is essential at a time of worrying uncertainties in the international economic and political environment...

Trade Capacity Building
OECD

These are some of the questions discussed at the Regional Workshop on Trade Capacity Building: Experiences in an African Context that was held in Mombasa on 26-27 August 2002, organised jointly by the OECD Development Co-operation Directorate, the OECD Development Centre and the United Nations Economic Commission for Africa. This section contains the Workshop discussions and a selection of the papers presented by participants. It represents a unique mix of concrete on-the-ground experiences and case studies, from a wide array of African stakeholders and representatives from international organisations and bilateral donors. The report outlines key elements of fostering a stakeholder dialogue on trade policy as a means of building trade capacity and reviews tools and mechanisms available to support this process...

Strengthening Procurement Capacities in Developing Countries
OECD

The Round Table on Strengthening Procurement Capacities in Developing Countries is a joint DAC / World Bank initiative. The overall objectives of the Round Table process are to identify and address key procurement capacity building needs and to build procurement systems in developing countries around which donors can harmonise their procedures (building on the DAC Recommendation to untie ODA to the Least Developed Countries and linking up to the work of the DAC’s Task Force on Donor Practices). This first meeting (three meetings are planned over 2003-2004) had the objectives of arriving at a shared agenda between participants and setting out a business plan to work out a limited number of concrete and demand-driven products over the biennium...

Integrating ICT in Development Programmes
OECD

There is broad agreement that information and communication technologies (ICT) can play an important role in combating poverty and realising the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs). The ongoing challenge is to integrate ICT effectively into national development plans and donor programmes, to co-ordinate more effectively the efforts of various donors in this domain, and to share knowledge on ’what works and why’ in harnessing ICT for development...

Public Opinion and the Fight against Poverty
OECD

The evidence shows that citizens in OECD DAC member countries want more solidarity and justice in the world. They support international development co–operation, and if they were more and better informed, if their capacity to critically engage in the policy debate was stronger, they could be a precious constituency for its reform and improvement. There lies an opportunity for governments, especially for those that have pledged to increase their ODA, to kick–start a virtuous circle of transparency and reform, and effectively rise to the challenge of global poverty reduction...
