The fourth industrial revolution and migration: how to ensure a smooth transition?

5. Juli 2021 - 12:47
A dramatic change in the way our economies and societies interact, produce and communicate is underway as a fusion of technologies blurs the lines between the physical, digital, and biological spheres. And with our economies more globally interlinked today than ever, this industrial revolution extends to practically every corner of the world.

The growing role of the private sector in development co-operation: challenges for global governance

30. Juni 2021 - 17:17
Today, the COVID-19 pandemic and climate change both illustrate a growing and urgent need for the provision of global public goods. As these public goods expand in number but become relatively more affordable, they can be provided by certain private corporations that enjoy enhanced market power. Development partnerships and governance structures which include the private sector may also become demonstrably both more legitimate and more efficient than those set-up solely between governments, which are seen as less inclusive, highly bureaucratised and slow-moving.

Enjeux et défis du financement du développement dans la zone de l’Union économique et monétaire ouest-africaine post-COVID-19

17. Juni 2021 - 13:57
Le recours à l’endettement pour financer les plans de riposte et de relance économique explique principalement le fait que le déficit budgétaire des pays de l’Union Économique et Monétaire Ouest Africaine (UEMOA) se soit accru. Au plan des finances publiques, même en tenant compte d’un redémarrage de l’activité autour de 5.5% cette année (contre 1,5% en 2020), le déficit budgétaire global représenterait en 2021 près de 5,0% du PIB, après 5,4% en 2020.
