Transcript

  • 1. Towards an MDG plus agenda Dr. Claire Melamed Head of Policy ActionAid UK
  • 2. Has to mobilise resources - Gleneagles 2005 What new narrative will have that clarity and power for the new development finance agenda?
  • 3. Has to provide the right incentives for development to happen - Current agenda less successful - Ignores key realities of gender and power What new narrative will increase understanding of realities of power that block poverty reduction?
  • 4. Global ‘Welfare State’ - Shift from country level averages to commitment to ensure every individual has access to basic minimum of services and income
  • 5. - Responsibility still with national governments to deliver - But focus on individuals forces discussion of barriers to access - Shift of funding mechanism from uncertain ‘aid’ to more predictable redistributive mechanisms, e.g. innovative financing, tax, CTT, based on rights rather than charity.
