Development Co-operation Report 2013

Ending Poverty

image of Development Co-operation Report 2013

The Development Co-operation Report (DCR) 2013 explores what needs to be done to achieve rapid and sustainable progress in the global fight to reduce poverty. The world is on track to achieve the Millennium Development Goal (MDG) target of halving the proportion of people whose income is less than USD 1.25 a day. Nonetheless, we are far from achieving the overarching MDG goal of eradicating extreme poverty. While we have learned much about what works in terms of reducing poverty, “getting to zero” remains a challenge in the face of the intractable difficulties of reaching those mired in extreme poverty.

The report  focuses on the very poor and will set out, in concrete terms:

• The nature and dimensions of poverty today

• What development co-operation – and the global partnerships it supports – can do in the fight against poverty

The DCR 2013 will focus on the positive experiences of countries, highlighting policies and approaches that have worked.

OECD DAC peer reviews

In 2012, Finland adopted a new development policy that built on Finnish expertise and emphasised a human rights-based approach to development. The strengths of Finland’s development co-operation include longstanding priorities, openness to dialogue with a broad range of stakeholders, and good co-operation and division of labour with other donors. Finland is also a strong international advocate of human rights, the environment, policy coherence for development and aid effectiveness. It is seen as a constructive partner within the development co-operation and humanitarian communities, and in its partner countries.
