Adaptive and innovative aid modalities and policies to overcome unique and rapidly shifting challenges are emerging from the forum to guide international actors for result-based outcomes.. You are all rich countries, rich in resources.. Now is the time to transform that into tangible benefits for your people.. Judy Cheng Hopkins, Assistant Secretary - General for the Peacebuilding Support Commission.. Though many of the g7+ countries are rich in resources, they remain the poorest and most vulnerable to internal and external shocks, have the lowest indicators of all developing countries and have yet to achieve one MDG.. A core objective in peacebuilding and statebuilding is to transform resource wealth into tangible benefits for the people of these countries through best practice international systems and models of governance prioritizing inclusive politics, security, justice, strong economic foundations and good resource and revenue management as integral steps to sustainable development.. Though each national trajectory will differ, priorities and agendas change, each unique country-owned and country-led plan should be grounded in these five basic principles adapted to their national context..

    Descriptive info: Présentation du g7+.. Sur une population mondiale de plus de 7 milliards d individus, 1,5 milliard d entre eux vivent dans des situations de conflit et de fragilité.. Le groupe du g7+, mécanisme international dirigé par les pays pour les pays, permet de suivre, de rendre compte, et d attirer l attention sur les défis uniques auxquels les États fragiles font face.. Le g7+ a été formé pour travailler de concert avec les acteurs internationaux, le secteur privé, la société civile, les médias et les citoyens de tous les pays et de toutes les régions pour réformer et réinventer un nouveau paradigme pour l engagement international.. À un moment crucial de la dynamique internationale où la fragilité est observée dans les pays en développement comme dans les pays développés attisée par les chocs sur les marchés financiers mondiaux, les inquiétudes liées au changement climatique, la hausse des prix des matières premières et le mécontentement des citoyens, le g7+ cherche à influencer la politique internationale au moyen des principes fondateurs de la consolidation de la paix et du renforcement de l État.. Le but du g7+ est de mettre fin aux conflits, de construire des nations et d éradiquer la pauvreté grâce à des stratégies de développement innovatrices et adaptées au contexte de chaque pays, alignées sur les programmes du pays et dirigées par l État-nation et ses citoyens.. Au moyen d un programme transformateur de fond aidant et mobilisant les acteurs internationaux, le g7+ a facilité le dialogue sur des réformes urgentes en ce qui concerne la gestion, la conception et la délivrance de l aide.. La politique internationale de référence guidant la transition de la fragilité au développement durable est le New Deal pour  ...   transition.. Des politiques et des modalités d aides souples et innovatrices pour surmonter des défis uniques et qui évoluent rapidement se dégagent de ce forum pour guider les acteurs internationaux et leur permettre d atteindre des objectifs basés sur les résultats.. Vous êtes tous des pays riches, vos ressources sont vos richesses.. Le temps est venu de traduire cela en avantages tangibles pour vos concitoyens.. Judy Cheng Hopkins, sous-secrétaire générale de la Commission de l appui à la consolidation de la paix.. Bien que de nombreux pays du g7+ soient riches en ressources, ils restent parmi les pays les plus démunis et les plus vulnérables aux chocs internes et externes, ont les indicateurs les plus faibles de tous les pays en développement et n ont pas encore atteint un seul des OMD.. Un objectif essentiel en matière de consolidation de la paix et de renforcement de l État est de transformer la valeur des ressources en avantages tangibles pour les citoyens de ces pays en utilisant les meilleurs modèles et systèmes internationaux de gouvernance dont la priorité est de faire des politiques d inclusion, de la sécurité, de la justice, du renforcement des fondations économiques et de la bonne gestion des ressources et des revenus des étapes essentielles sur la voie du développement durable.. Les trajectoires nationales sont différentes, les priorités et les programmes ne sont pas les mêmes, mais chaque plan unique dirigé par un pays doit se fonder sur ces cinq principes de base en les adaptant à son propre contexte national..

Friday, March 1, 2013 at 9:04AM.. The International Conference on the Post-2015 Development Agenda has ended with the Prime Minister of Timor-Leste, His Excellency Kay Rala Xanana Gusmão, giving his closing remarks.. The Prime Minister told the 227 international guests, representing over fifty countries and hundreds of Timorese delegates that It has been an honour and a privilege for the people of Timor-Leste to host this conference.. He encouraged the gathering with his final words We know our challenges are great but we also know that together we can find the answers.. The outcomes of this conference as articulated in the consensus statement will now feed into the report of the High Level Panel on the Post-2015 Development Agenda.. Additionally the Special Envoys of the High Level Panel Co-Chairs will be reporting back to their respective Co-Chairs on the themes that have been shared in the conference in Dili.. The Dili International Conference has been a unique endeavour.. Prime Minister Gusmão noted that For the first time, we fragile States have come together to be part of the process of setting the global development framework in an equitable, sustainable and fair way.. Of this, he said, we should be proud.. Email.. |.. Print.. Share.. Friday, March 1, 2013 at 8:53AM.. After hearing back from the Facilitators of the Breakout Groups this morning, and from those close to the workings of the High Level Panel advising the Secretary General on the Post-2015 Development Agenda, it was time to have the presentation of the outcome document of the conference.. Representing the Prime Minister of the Solomon Islands, His Excellency Gordon Darcy Lilo, the Minister for Finance and Treasury of the Solomon Islands, His Excellency Rick Nelson Houenipwela, read the.. Dili Consensus.. to the plenary.. The document emphasises the importance of national ownership of the development agenda while supporting the pursuit of universal aspirational goals at the global level.. It points to four areas not adequately treated in the MDGs: inclusive economic growth, state effectiveness, peace and justice, and climate change and environmental management, and notes that existing goals in relation to health, education, women s empowerment and global partnerships should remain, with refinements.. The Dili Consensus recognises that inclusive economic growth requires policies that are pro-jobs and pro-poor.. Prime Minister Gusmão referred to the document as historic and one that sets out our priorities, and our hopes for the Post-2015 Development Agenda.. He said This is a document that reflects the view of the g7+ nations, the PALOP nations, and our Pacific neighbours.. The Dili Consensus can be downloaded in English.. THE DILI CONSENSUS.. PREAMBLE.. The Democratic Republic of Timor-Leste hosted government and civil society representatives from the g7+ group of fragile states, Pacific island countries and the group of Portuguese-speaking African countries (PALOP), at the Dili International Conference on the post-2015 development agenda on 26-28 February 2013.. The theme of the conference was Development for all: Stop conflict, build states and eradicate poverty.. Its purpose was to reach a broad consensus on how the specific development challenges faced by fragile and conflict-affected states should shape the post-2015 global development framework.. We came together in a spirit of mutual learning, and to find common ground and build solidarity.. Together we have a vast reservoir of experience and a powerful voice.. We know that many of us will not achieve most of the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs).. We know that the well-being of our people depends upon the achievement of outcomes that were not adequately reflected in the MDGs, most notably in the areas of peace and justice and climate change.. We know that we must shape our collective future, and that where factors impeding development are beyond our control we must speak with one voice in articulating our expectations of the global community.. TOWARDS A NEW DEVELOPMENT AGENDA.. We are in agreement that the MDGs.. have helped to focus our development efforts, facilitate dialogue and make our development strategies more results-oriented.. However, they do not recognise the fundamental barriers that we face.. Most importantly, c.. onflict and fragility are not reflected in the MDGs, and have been fundamental obstacles to their achievement in our countries.. We believe the post-2015 development agenda must reflect the development challenges of all groups of countries, and be.. defined through inclusive country-led consultative processes.. We underscore the importance of participatory national consultations and self-assessments as the basis for defining our national development priorities, and acknowledge the critical role of political leadership and sustained political commitment in realising our goals.. We support the pursuit of universal aspirational goals at the global level.. At the same time, we emphasise that national ownership of the development agenda is imperative.. Our national development frameworks must reflect our national priorities and circumstances.. They should be aligned with, but not subordinate to, global goals.. While our specific needs and priorities may differ, we all envision better lives for our people, based upon human security.. The post-2015 global development framework must seek to enhance the social contract by promoting integrated action in four major areas not adequately treated in the MDGs:.. inclusive economic growth, peacebuilding and statebuilding, and climate change and environmental management.. Existing goals in relation to health, education, women s empowerment, water and sanitation, and global partnerships should remain, with refinements.. We believe that inclusive economic growth requires policies that are pro-jobs and pro-poor.. It requires investments in soft and hard economic infrastructure that facilitate private sector development, regional integration and global connectivity.. It requires that we receive fair and sustainable returns from our natural resources including oceans, which will help us finance the provision of basic social services to our people.. With these things in place, and conducive policy and regulatory environments, trade and investment rather than aid should increasingly drive our development.. Given the links between youth unemployment and conflict, skills development and job creation is imperative.. With increasing urbanisation, the shrinking of the informal economy and the weakening of traditional coping mechanisms, we must put in place social protection policies and programs that identify and support those suffering the greatest hardships, including the elderly and people with disabilities.. Improving the effectiveness of the state and its institutions is critical to achieving national development goals.. We agreed that good governance is fundamental to the achievement of our goals, and that development progress in our countries,.. particularly in newly independent countries and those recently emerging from conflict,.. is impeded by weak state capacity.. We noted also the importance of corresponding improvements in the policies and practices of many of the developed countries with whom we interact, including in the areas of trade, the regulation of the activities of multinational corporations and the management of aid.. We recommend our development partnerships be based on mutual trust rather than conditionality.. Many of our countries consider themselves overburdened by the multiplicity of international agreements, policy commitments, and related implementation and reporting requirements, and see a need for rationalisation and integration of the many parallel processes that collectively set the global agenda.. We support the perspective, articulated most prominently by our g7.. +.. countries, that the MDGs cannot be achieved in small, landlocked or conflict affected states in the absence of peace, stability and the rule of law.. We affirm the need for our development efforts to be underpinned by universal principles of respect for human rights, fairness, justice and peace.. We recognise the lived reality of climate change, which ultimately will affect all countries and is an existential threat for some.. We are not part of the cause of climate change; nor can we manage its inevitable effects on our own.. We must hold to account the countries that contribute most to the problem, and marshal international support for climate change mitigation, adaptation and disaster risk reduction.. While solutions continue to elude us in our global negotiations, this is all the more reason to put climate change firmly on the development agenda and to build resilience against those impacts that can no longer be averted.. THE WAY FORWARD.. Business as usual is not a viable option.. We are no longer on the.. same development journey that we began at the start of the new millennium.. We must build a framework for the next era of global development that is legitimate and relevant, truly reflecting the development aspirations and challenges of people everywhere.. Asia s development experience has shown us that we can turn potential tragedy into inspirational progress.. With the right policies, investments and global collective action on challenges beyond our control, we have the potential to build peaceful, vibrant, just, resilient, inclusive and sustainable economies and societies.. The post-2015 development framework must help us realise our potential.. Regional, sub-regional and cross-regional cooperation, especially South-South cooperation, will be a key driver for change as we further develop our national development strategies and contribute to the new global framework.. Such cooperation can build on existing intergovernmental platforms, including those provided by the g7+, Pacific regional and sub-regional institutions, the United Nations regional commissions, and multilateral financial institutions, to develop and promote policy consensus and innovative solutions to shared challenges, including peace creation and peace building.. We intend to use every opportunity to make our voices heard and build on the.. New Deal for Engagement in Fragile States.. to ensure.. development for all.. DILI, TIMOR-LESTE.. 28 FEBRUARY 2012.. Friday, March 1, 2013 at 8:44AM.. CONSENSUS DE DILI.. PRÉAMBULE.. La République démocratique du Timor-Leste a accueilli les représentants de gouvernement et de la société civile du groupe g7+ des États fragiles, des pays insulaires du Pacifique et les pays africains de langue officielle portugaise à la Conférence internationale de Dili sur le Programme de développement pour l après-2015, du 26 au 28 février 2013.. Le thème de la Conférence était Le développement pour tous: mettre fin aux conflits, renforcer les États et éliminer la pauvreté.. Elle avait pour objet de parvenir à un large consensus sur la manière dont les défis spécifiques auxquels les États fragiles et touchés par un conflit étaient confrontés en matière de développement devraient façonner le cadre de devéloppement mondial pour l après-2015.. Nous nous sommes réunis dans un esprit d apprentissage mutuel, et pour trouver un terrain d entente et renforcer la solidarité.. Ensemble, nous disposons d un vaste réservoir d expériences et d une voix puissante.. Nous savons que la plupart d entre nous ne réalisera pas la plupart des Objectifs du Millénaire pour le développement (OMD).. Nous savons que le bien-être de nos peuples dépend de l obtention de résultats qui n occupaient pas la place qui leur reviennent dans les OMD, notamment dans les domaines de la paix, de la justice et des changements climatiques.. Nous savons que nous devons façonner notre avenir collectif, et que dans les domaines où il nous est impossible d exercer une influence sur les facteurs entravant le développement , nous devons parler d une même voix en exprimant ce que nous attendons de la communauté mondiale.. VERS UN NOUVEAU PROGRAMME DE DÉVELOPPEMENT.. Nous nous sommes accordés à reconnaître que les OMD ont aidé à concentrer nos efforts en matière de développement, à faciliter le dialogue et à rendre nos stratégies de développement plus axées sur les résultats.. Toutefois, ils ne reconnaissent pas les obstacles fondamentaux auxquels nous sommes confrontés.. Le plus important est que les conflits et la fragilité ne sont pas pris en compte dans les OMD et ont constitué des obstacles fondamentaux à leur réalisation dans nos pays.. Nous sommes convaincus que le Programme de développement pour l après-2015 doit prendre en compte les défis de tous les groupes de pays, et doit être défini par des processus consultatifs dirigés par les pays.. Nous soulignons l importance des consultations et auto-évaluations nationales participatives sur lesquelles se fonder pour définir nos priorités nationales en matière de développement, et reconnaissons le rôle essentiel du leadership politique et d un engagement politique soutenu dans la réalisation de nos objectifs.. Nous appuyons la poursuite d objectifs universels ambitieux au niveau mondial.. Parallèlement, nous mettons l accent sur le fait que l appropriation nationale du programme de développement est impérative.. Nos cadres de développement nationaux doivent prendre en compte les priorités et les conditions propres à nos pays.. Ils devront être en adéquation avec les objectifs mondiaux mais non s y subordonner.. Si nos besoins et priorités spécifiques peuvent être différents, nous envisageons tous une vie meilleure pour nos peuples, fondée sur la sécurité humaine.. Le cadre de développement mondial pour l après-2015 doit chercher à renforcer le contrat social par la promotion d une action intégrée dans quatre grands domaines qui n ont pas été traités de manière adéquate dans les OMD: la croissance économique inclusive, la consolidation de la paix et le renforcement de l État, et les changements climatiques et la gestion de l environnement.. Les objectifs existants relatifs à la santé, à l éducation, à l autonomisation des femmes, de l eau et de l assainissement, et aux partenariats mondiaux devront rester les mêmes, avec quelques ajustements.. Nous sommes convaincus que la croissance économique inclusive exige des politiques qui soient propices à l emploi et aux pauvres.. Elle requiert des investissements dans les infrastructures et les connaissances qui favorisent le développement du secteur privé, l intégration régionale et la connectivité mondiale.. Elle exige que nous recevions des recettes équitables et durables de nos ressources naturelles, y compris les océans, lesquelles nous aideront à financer la prestation de services sociaux de base à nos peuples.. Cela étant mis en place et avec des politiques et des réglementations favorables, le commerce et l investissement devront, plutôt que l aide, contribuer de plus en plus à notre développement.. Étant donné les liens entre le chômage des jeunes et les conflits, le développement des compétences et la création d emplois sont impératifs.. Avec l urbanisation croissante, le recul de l économie informelle et l affaiblissement des mécanismes d adaptation traditionnels, nous devons mettre en place des politiques et programmes de protection sociale qui identifient et appuient ceux qui souffrent des plus grandes privations, y compris les personnes âgées et les personnes handicapées.. Renforcer l efficacité de l État et de ses institutions est crucial pour réaliser les objectifs de développement national.. Nous avons reconnu que la gouvernance est fondamentale pour la réalisation de nos objectifs, et que le développement dans nos pays, en particulier dans les pays nouvellement indépendants et dans ceux qui sortent à peine d un conflit, est entravé par le manque de moyens de l État.. Nous avons noté également l importance des améliorations correspondantes dans les politiques et pratiques de nombreux pays développés avec lesquels nous maintenons des relations, notamment dans les domaines du commerce, de la réglementation des activités des sociétés multinationales et de la gestion de l aide.. Nous recommandons à nos partenaires de développement d opérer sur la base de la confiance mutuelle plutôt que par l imposition de conditions.. Nombre de pays parmi nous s estiment dépassés par la multiplication des accords internationaux, des engagements politiques et des obligations qui en découlent en matière d application et d établissement de rapports, et ils considèrent qu il y a lieu de procéder à la rationalisation et à l intégration de nombreux processus parallèles qui constituent collectivement le programme mondial.. Nous appuyons le point de vue, développé surtout par les pays du g7+, selon lequel les OMD ne peuvent être réalisés dans les petits États, les États sans littoral et les États touchés par un conflit en l absence de paix, de stabilité et d état de droit.. Nous affirmons que notre action en faveur du développement doit être étayée par les principes universels du respect des droits de l homme, de l impartialité, de la justice et de la paix.. Nous reconnaissons la réalité des changements climatiques, qui toucheront en fin de compte l ensemble des pays et constituent une menace pour l existence même de certains.. Nous ne sommes pas à  ...   the 28.. of February the closing session will begin with the announcement of the.. Dili Consensus.. by the Prime Minister of the Solomon Islands, His Excellency Gordon Darcy Lilo.. The Conference will then be closed by His Excellency Kay Rala Xanana Gusmão and a press conference convened with the Minister of Finance, Her Excellency Emilia Pires and Under-Secretary-General of the United Nations and Executive Secretary of ESCAP, Dr.. Noeleen Heyzer.. On the following days, the 1.. st.. and 2.. nd.. of March, the g7+ will hold their own Technical Meetings to consolidate their plans for 2013 and develop action plans for the work ahead.. Monday.. 11.. Governance and Institution Building: Lessons from fragile and conflict affected states.. Monday, February 11, 2013 at 1:01AM.. A speech given by Chair of the g7+, Her Excellency Emilia Pires, during the meeting of the High Level Panel on the Post 2015 Development Agenda in Monrovia, Liberia.. The members of the High Level Panel on the Post-2015 Development Agenda on the occasion of their first meeting in New York City, September 2012.. I would like to thank the Liberian Government and the Liberian people for hosting this event, and in particular H.. Madame President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf.. I would also like to thank the High Level Panel Secretariat for their support in our collective efforts to discuss and deliberate the many challenges and opportunities we face in establishing a post 2015 architecture.. Let me begin by adding my support to what Ministers Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala and Gunilla Carlsson have just outlined in their presentations.. Improving the governance of natural resource management, establishing strong, transparent and accountable institutions, and strengthening the rule of law have been the central pillars of our peace building and state building efforts in Timor-Leste.. May I be clear that what I am about to outline on peace building and state building does not apply solely to conflict and fragile countries.. Although equally, we should not forget that there are 1.. 5 billion people or 20% of humanity living in settings of conflict and fragility; and who are among the poorest, most vulnerable and most in need.. Whilst the MDGs give us a framework of indicators to aim for, we cannot achieve these targets if we as states do not have the tools to do so.. When aid donors attempt to do it for us; it weakens any ability to establish sustainable systems of governance so that one day we can do it alone.. In order to build upon and accelerate the progress of the MDGs, we need in place the national building blocks for eradicating extreme poverty and bringing about sustainable development.. Improving the management of natural resource revenues helps countries like ours to generate the finances to deliver the necessary services to our people.. Strong institutions and a stable, peaceful environment are essential to ensure transparency and accountability in government, the private sector and civil society.. We know many countries including resource rich ones are struggling to meet the MDGs.. We also know it is an undeniable truth that to reach any of these goals, eradicating extreme poverty and bringing about sustainable development, two things are required: Peace and effective state institutions.. This is what we mean by peace building and state building.. Again, let me be clear, we are not talking about peacekeeping or security both of which are the rightful domains of sovereign states, and are dealt with under the UN Security Council.. I understand there has been some debate over what is actually meant when we use terms such as peace and security to clarify, when I talk of security in this context, I am talking about safety the safety of people.. When we talk about peace building and state building we are talking about inclusive politics, and having the necessary state apparatus to deliver basic services such as health and education, foster economic empowerment and promote sustainable development.. We are talking about building and strengthening the social contract between governments and their people; so that the political and policy dialogue can include as many people as possible.. This is what we mean by peace building; and it clearly benefits all countries, not just conflict affected or fragile states indeed at times every country faces tensions and disenfranchised groups to some degree.. We are also talking about ensuring the institutions of the state can deliver services to the people.. It means that we as States can manage our own resources and revenues; continue to improve service delivery, build or strengthen our institutions and enhance citizen/state confidence.. If, for example, we want our children to have quality learning outcomes, and we do, then we need to ensure our education ministry has the resources and capacity to make this happen.. This is what we mean by state building; and it clearly applies to all countries.. The pressures on states to deliver will only intensify as our populations become increasingly urbanised.. Only the state has the apparatus to work on such large scales.. NGOs and civil society have and will continue to play an important role in our development stories, but there is a vast difference, for example, between providing water tanks in individual rural communities, and providing a reliable and safe reticulated water supply and sanitation in our towns and cities.. There is no doubt in my mind that peace building and state building should be a headline goal as we set the post 2015 development agenda.. It is both a precursor and a complement to the other development priorities we have been discussing across this panel, including: economic empowerment and job creation; sustainable development; improving health and education outcomes; ensuring accountability, transparency and the rule of law; and tackling inequality, especially gender inequality.. The reality for conflict affected and fragile countries in meeting any of these development goals is profound parents will not send their children to school if they are not safe, teachers will not turn up to school if they are going to be attacked.. What is the point of building the best hospitals, if our doctors and nurses can t work out of fear of persecution?.. The risk of conflict and instability is highest in new and fragile states that already experience existing stresses around water supply; agricultural productivity; poor health and education systems; few employment and business opportunities; and demographic pressures.. Climate change will further exasperate these issues.. As Minister of Finance, I have experienced first hand the dual efforts of peace building and state building.. When my Government came into power in 2007; over eight billion dollars had been spent by the international community since 2001.. But when the 2007 Timor-Leste Standard of Living Survey came out, we discovered that poverty had doubled in some areas; and overall poverty had increased to 15%.. As we only have one million people, this made us all pause for reflection.. Clearly money alone does not deliver results.. Our 2007 wake up call was followed by critical and expedient reforms to, and the establishment of, vital institutions that enabled us to begin to service the population.. Strong social and fiscal policies combined with peace building efforts were accelerated by initiatives to improve accountability, transparency and the rule of law.. Peace came hand in hand with state building; and economic resilience quickly followed.. National ownership was key to these efforts.. We were empowered, where previously the State was being by-passed by donors, which was further eroding our people s confidence in the State.. In 2010 the g7+, a group which now represents 18 countries that experience similar challenges of fragility and conflict was formed.. The New Deal for engagement in fragile states identifies the key priorities for development in this context what we have called the peace building and state building goals that cover: inclusive politics; safety for all; justice; jobs for all; and management of natural resources revenues and services.. But now we have the opportunity to grasp the learning from our experience, and the collective learning from the MDGs to broaden the scope; and universally apply these to create the enabling environment for sustained and sustainable development.. I believe we have a responsibility to make peace building and state building our headline goal.. A goal that builds on the interlinked and mutually reinforcing principles of inclusive states, which are responsive, fair and accountable to their people.. A goal that will ensure we can deliver a holistic post 2015 development agenda; in an integrated way to foster economic empowerment, social equality and environmental sustainability.. At the end of the day all of what we are talking about is about people, and making their lives better.. Let us not leave the 1.. 5 billion people behind, again.. That is the theme of our consultation on 26-28 February in Timor-Leste in which you are all invited to hear the voices of the g7+ and the Pacific countries.. Thank you.. Thursday.. Jan.. 10.. Petits de taille et riches en ressources naturelles.. Thursday, January 10, 2013 at 6:32AM.. Petits de taille et riches en ressources naturelles :.. Comment mettre les ressources naturelles au service du développement dans les pays du g7+.. Paul Collier.. Centre for the Study of African Economies,.. Département d économie,.. et.. The Blavatnik School of Government,.. Université d Oxford.. Document présenté à la seconde retraite ministérielle du g7+.. 13-14 novembre 2012.. Karibe Hotel.. Port-au-Prince, HAITI.. Avec l autorisation du Groupe de la Banque mondiale.. Institut de la Banque mondiale.. Novembre 2012.. Introduction.. Les cours élevés des produits de base observés durant les dix dernières années ont provoqué un élan d investissement dans la recherche de ressources naturelles.. Pour des raisons évidentes, les pays du g7+ avaient attiré très peu d investissements dans la prospection par le passé ; ils faisaient donc partie des derniers territoires à y être encore ouverts.. La majorité des pays du g7+ ont à présent fait des découvertes significatives de ressources naturelles non renouvelables.. Le présent document a trait aux moyens par lesquels tirer parti de l exploitation des ressources naturelles non renouvelables telles que le pétrole et les minerais dans le but d assurer un développement économique durable.. Le pillage passé des ressources naturelles nous enseigne que dans ce domaine, la tâche n est pas aisée.. Cela dit, le Botswana apparaît comme un modèle permettant de comprendre comment un pays de taille modeste et pauvre de surcroît peut se transformer grâce à la découverte de ressources naturelles.. Les problèmes que posent les ressources naturelles comportent une double dimension technique et politique.. Au plan technique, une série de décisions complexes doivent être judicieusement prises.. La section 2 du document est consacrée à la présentation de cette série de décisions : la société en général doit rassembler une expertise suffisante lui permettant de comprendre ces problèmes.. Il ne suffit toutefois pas qu un groupe de technocrates de l administration publique comprenne ces problématiques pour qu on ait la certitude que les bonnes décisions seront prises.. Les différentes décisions se retrouvent dispersées entre plusieurs personnes et sont susceptibles de rester pertinentes des décennies durant.. La section 3 examine le triptyque politique que forment les règles, les institutions et la compréhension des citoyens, et sur lequel les bonnes décisions économiques sont susceptibles de reposer.. La section 4 examine la question globale de la responsabilité du pouvoir de décision politique, de fait ou de droit, nécessaire pour établir ces règles et institutions et promouvoir la compréhension du citoyen.. Il ne s agit pas, à mon avis, d un problème de coordination des politiques, mais plutôt d une question d autorité politique globale unifiée.. En conclusion, la section finale du document soutient que même si le retour à un passé marqué par le pillage des ressources naturelles apparaît comme l option par défaut, cette option est loin d être inévitable.. Mon ouvrage intitulé.. The Plundered Planet.. (Penguin et Oxford University Press, 2010) et la série d études de cas qui l accompagne sous le titre.. Plundered Nations? (.. Paul Collier et Tony Venables, (eds.. ), 2011) examinent plus exhaustivement la plupart de ces questions.. To download a French version of the paper in full click.. Small Countries and Big Resources.. Thursday, January 10, 2013 at 6:13AM.. During the recent g7+ Ministerial Retreat held in Haiti in November 2012 Paul Collier made a very helpful presentation on harnessing natural resources for development in the g7+ countries.. A lively discussion followed with many questions and contributions from the assembled country representatives.. An associated paper was prepared by Professor Collier courtesy of the World Bank Institute and is an excellent resource on this critical area within many of the g7+ countries.. Here is the introduction:.. Small Countries and Big Resources:.. Harnessing Natural Resources for Development in the g7+ Countries.. Paper prepared for the g7+ high level ministerial retreat.. Nov 13-14, 2012.. Port-au-Prince, Haiti.. Department of Economics,.. and.. University of Oxford.. Courtesy of World Bank Group.. World Bank Institute.. Contact: Ozong Agborsangaya-Fiteu, Senior Operations Officer, WBIFC.. ozong@worldbank.. org.. November, 2012.. The past decade of high commodity prices triggered a burst of investment in prospecting for natural resources.. For evident reasons, the g7+ countries had previously attracted little investment in prospecting and so they were among the last frontiers available for search.. Most g7+ countries have now had significant discoveries of non-renewable natural resources.. This paper is about how to harness the exploitation of non-renewable natural resources, such as oil and minerals, for sustained economic development.. The history of resource plunder in poor countries tells us that this is not easy.. But Botswana stands as a beacon of how a small and once-poor country can transform itself through a resource discovery.. The challenge posed by natural resources is partly technical and partly political.. At the technical level a chain of somewhat complex economic decisions has to be got right.. Section 2 sets out this chain: the society has to build sufficient expertise to understand these issues.. But even if a group of technocrats in government understand the issues this is unlikely to be sufficient to ensure good decisions.. The different decisions are dispersed across a wide range of people, and are likely to span several decades.. Section 3 discusses the political tripod of rules, institutions and citizen understanding on which good economic decisions are likely to rest.. Section 4 discusses the meta-issue of where.. de facto.. and.. de jure.. political decision power for creating these rules, institutions and citizen understanding should be lodged.. I caution against framing the problem as one of policy coordination, and instead argue for a unified overarching political authority.. The concluding Section argues that, although a repetition of the dismal history of resource plunder is the default option, it is far from inevitable.. A fuller treatment of most of these issues is in my short book.. (Penguin and Oxford University Press, 2010) and in the supporting series of case studies.. Plundered Nations?,..

We have just uploaded Peer Learning Note 5 about Sierra Leone s Fragility Assessment.. Each note can be downloaded from the Peer Learning page as a pdf in English or French.. Here is an excerpt from Note 5:.. IMPLEMENTING THE NEW DEAL.. Sierra Leone Fragility Assessment.. Sierra Leone was the first country to pilot implementation of the New Deal Fragility Assessment.. By seizing this opportunity, Sierra Leone was able to:.. Develop a clear picture of how Sierra Leoneans view the fragility and resilience of their own country; and.. Generate understanding and consensus regarding Sierra Leone s fragility and resilience to inform the new Agenda for Prosperity Poverty Reduction Strategy.. The fragility assessment involved six weeks of research, interviews and data collection, centred on a week of intensive workshops involving over fifty representatives from government ministries and agencies, regional representatives from throughout Sierra Leone, parliament and civil society groups.. In relation to each.. Peacebuilding and Statebuilding Goal (PSG).. , participants worked together to answer five key questions:.. What was Sierra Leone like during the crisis?.. What is Sierra Leone like now?.. Where do we want to get to and what s missing?.. How would you rate the current position on a scale of 1 (most fragile) to 5 (least fragile)?.. What types of indicators should be used to track progress and which are the most important to monitor?.. Read more by downloading the note in English:.. Note 5 in English..

  • Title: New Deal Document - The g7+
    Descriptive info: g7+ leaders meeting during an International Dialogue on Peacebuilding and Statebuilding Working Group on Aid Instruments in April 2011.. On the 30th of November 2011 at the 4th High Level Forum on Aid Effectiveness the.. advocated by the g7+ and developed through the forum of the International Dialogue for Peacebuilding and Statebuilding was presented and widely endorsed.. A list of endorsing countries and organisations will be posted shortly.. Download the New Deal in.. English.. or.. French.. A NEW DEAL.. for engagement in fragile states.. THE FACTS.. 5 billion people.. live in conflict-affected and fragile states.. About.. 70% of fragile states have seen conflict.. since 1989.. Basic.. governance transformations may take 20-40 years.. 30% of Official Development Assistance.. (ODA) is spent in fragile and conflict-affected contexts.. These countries are.. furthest away from achieving the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs).. The current ways of working in fragile states need serious improvement.. Despite the significant investment and the commitments of the Paris Declaration on Aid Effectiveness (2005) and the Accra Agenda for Action (2008), results and value for money have been modest.. Transitioning out of fragility is long, political work that requires.. country leadership and ownership.. Processes of political dialogue have often failed due to lack of trust, inclusiveness, and leadership.. International partners can often bypass national interests and actors, providing aid in overly technocratic ways that underestimate the importance of harmonising with the national and local context, and support short-term results at the expense of medium- to long-term sustainable results brought about by building capacity and systems.. A.. New Deal.. for engagement in fragile states is necessary.. THE VISION.. We, the members of the.. International Dialogue on Peacebuilding and Statebuilding.. ( the Dialogue ), comprised of the g7+ group of 19 fragile and conflict-affected countries, development partners, and international organisations, believe that a new development architecture and new ways of working, better tailored to the situation and challenges of fragile contexts, are necessary to build peaceful states and societies.. These are presented in the.. New Deal for Engagement in Fragile States.. (the.. ).. The.. New Deal ,.. which builds on the vision and principles articulated from the Millennium Declaration to the Monrovia Roadmap, proposes key peacebuilding and statebuilding goals, focuses on new ways of engaging, and identifies commitments to build mutual trust and achieve better results in fragile states.. We recognise that the success of our combined effort depends on the leadership and commitment of the g7+ group of fragile states supported by international actors.. We also recognise that constructive state-society relations, and the empowerment of women, youth and marginalised groups, as key actors for peace, are at the heart of successful peacebuilding and statebuilding.. They are essential to deliver the New Deal.. THE NEW DEAL.. We, the members of the Dialogue , endorse the.. and commit to undertake the necessary actions and reforms to implement it.. We agree to use the.. Peacebuilding and Statebuilding Goals (PSGs).. , as an important foundation to enable progress towards the MDGs to guide our work in fragile and conflict-affected states.. By September 2012, a set of indicators for each goal will have been developed by fragile states and international partners, which will allow us to track progress at the global and the country level.. We commit to.. FOCUS.. on new ways of engaging, to support inclusive.. country-led and country-owned transitions out of fragility.. based on a country-led fragility assessment developed by the g7+ with the support of international partners, a country-led one vision and one plan, a country compact to implement the plan, using the PSGs to monitor progress, and support inclusive and participatory political dialogue.. We commit to build mutual.. TRUST.. by providing.. aid and managing resources more effectively and aligning these resources for results.. We will enhance transparency, risk management to use country systems, strengthen national capacities and timeliness of aid, improving the speed and predictability of funding to achieve better results.. THE NEW DEAL: The details.. I.. Peacebuilding and Statebuilding Goals - PSGs.. We, the members of the Dialogue , agree to use the.. Peacebuilding and Statebuilding Goals (PSGs).. as an important foundation to enable progress towards the MDGs and to guide our work in fragile and conflict-affected states.. The five goals are:.. Legitimate Politics -.. Foster inclusive political settlements and conflict resolution.. Security -.. Establish and strengthen people s security.. Justice -.. Address injustices and increase people s access to justice.. Economic Foundations -.. Generate employment and improve livelihoods.. Revenues Services -.. Manage revenue and build capacity for accountable and fair service delivery.. The PSGs will guide the identification of peacebuilding and statebuilding priorities at the country level.. They will inform the national vision, plan and a country-level compact to implement the plan.. They will inform global and country-level funding decisions to help ensure that all fragile countries, and their key peacebuilding and statebuilding priorities, are supported.. By September 2012, a set of indicators for each goal will have been developed by fragile states and international partners, which will allow us to track progress at the global and the country levels.. These indicators will combine objective measures with measures to understand the views of people on results achieved.. We will work towards full consideration of the PSGs in the post-MDG development framework beyond 2015 and, after Busan, towards the consideration of the PSGs by the 2012 United Nations General Assembly and other fora.. II.. FOCUS - Engagement to support country-owned and -led pathways out of fragility.. As part of the.. we commit to.. based on a country-led fragility assessment developed by the g7+ with the support of development partners, a country-led one vision and one plan, a country compact to implement the plan, using the PSGs to monitor progress, and support inclusive and participatory political dialogue.. We recognise that an engaged public and civil society, which constructively monitors decision-making, is important to ensure accountability.. F: Fragility assessment.. We will conduct a periodic country-led assessment on the causes and features of fragility and  ...   doing so, we will build related fiduciary and administrative capacity within country institutions at the national and local level.. International partners will increase the percentage of aid delivered through country systems[vii] on the basis of measures and targets jointly agreed at the country level.. [viii] Recipient governments will seek to increase the proportion of public expenditure funded by domestic revenues.. S: Strengthen capacities.. To ensure efficient support to build critical capacities of institutions of the state and civil society in a balanced manner, we will increase the proportion of funds for capacity development through jointly administered and funded pooled facilities.. [ix] We will substantially reduce programme implementation units per institution[x]and will target the use of external technical assistance, ensuring they report through to the relevant national authority.. We will work towards an understanding on remuneration codes of conduct between government and international partners for national experts.. We will facilitate the exchange of South-South and fragile-fragile experiences on transitions out of fragility.. T: Timely and predictable aid.. We will develop and use simplified, accountable fast-track financial management and procurement procedures to improve the speed and flexibility of aid delivery in fragile situations,[xi] and review national legal frameworks to support our shared objectives.. We commit to increase the predictability of aid, including by publishing three-to-five year indicative forward estimates (as committed in the Accra Agenda for Action), and to make more effective use of global and country level funds for peacebuilding and statebuilding.. [xii] Where national legislation may prevents this, development partners will seek to address these aid delivery challenges to allow them to better deliver on these commitments.. We will provide necessary data to the Development Assistance Committee (DAC) [xiii] to enable regular reporting on volatility.. THE NEW DEAL: From Paris to Busan.. , presented in this document, is based on the Paris Declaration on Aid Effectiveness (2005), the Principles for Good International Engagement in Fragile States and Situations (2007), the Kinshasa Statement (2008), the Accra Agenda for Action (2008), the Dili Declaration and consecutive g7+ Statements (2010-2011), the Monrovia Roadmap (2011), and the work undertaken by the Dialogue working groups.. [xiv] It also acknowledges that the Principles and Good Practices of Humanitarian Donorship will be followed with respect to humanitarian action.. The Cairo Conference on Capacity Development (February 2011), the Addis Ababa Meeting on Peacebuilding and Statebuilding (September 2011), and the g7+ Juba Ministerial Retreat (October 2011) have contributed to shaping and building consensus around the New Deal.. Recognising that building peaceful states requires long-term efforts and incremental approaches, we will implement the.. between 2012-15, as a trial period.. THE DIALOGUE CONTINUES.. Going forward, we agree that the Dialogue has a vital role to play in supporting members in implementing the.. and in continuing to promote effective ways to support countries transitioning out of fragility and building peaceful states.. The g7+ group will continue as the country-owned and country-led global mechanism to monitor, report and draw attention to the unique challenges faced by fragile states.. International partners will continue to support this mechanism.. The Dialogue will continue to provide a platform for its members and reach out to other interested partners, discuss overall progress in reforming efforts to support peacebuilding and statebuilding and agree on additional joint action that may be required.. We will meet annually to do so.. We agree to work together through the Dialogue to implement this New Deal including.. via.. :.. Piloting:.. We will support the piloting of the.. (PSGs, FOCUS and TRUST) in self-nominating countries, including Afghanistan, Central African Republic, Democratic Republic of Congo, Liberia, Sierra Leone, South Sudan and Timor-Leste and self-nominating donor partners in these countries.. To do so, we will consider the appropriate funding sources.. Reporting:.. We will report on the delivery of the.. commitments focused at the country level and at the global level.. We will agree on the mechanisms to do so.. Footnotes:.. [i] The Fragility Spectrum is a diagnostic tool to assist fragile and conflict affected states to identify the nature of their own fragility and plan a pathway of transition towards stability and development.. [ii] See Fragile States Principle 7: Align with local priorities in different ways in different contexts.. Where governments demonstrate political will to foster development, but lack capacity, international actors should seek to align assistance behind government strategies.. Where capacity is limited, the use of alternative aid instruments - such as international compacts or multi-donor trust funds - can facilitate shared priorities and responsibility for execution between national and international institutions.. [iii].. See 2011 Survey on Monitoring the Paris Declaration (OECD 2011), and International Engagement in Fragile States: Can t we do better? (OECD 2011).. [iv] Transparency can also be pursued through other international standards.. [v] See Accra Agenda for Action paragraph 24a.. [vi] These will include contracting out fiduciary service, using independent monitoring agents, co-managing programme implementation, a donor-led review of acquisition and assistance and any other relevant policies to ensure these objectives are met.. [vii] Building on Accra Agenda for Action paragraph 15.. [viii] As permitted by donors respective applicable legal provisions.. [ix] Consistent with donor applicable legal provisions and building on Paris Declaration target 4 that 50% of technical co-operation flows [be] implemented through co-ordinated programmes consistent with national development strategies..

  • Title: Peer Learning Notes - The g7+
    Descriptive info: From the outset a core feature of the g7+ has been the sharing amongst members of experiences and lessons learned.. Even with the great diversity amongst member countries, our journeys out of fragility and conflict have had common themes.. In our first meeting in Dili in April 2010 candid conversations were animated by these commonalities and a desire to learn from each other to solve issues and find better pathways to development and resilience.. Over the past months some of these lessons learned have been developed into notes that will continue to be posted in this section of the website to build up a distinctive resource developed by g7+ member countries.. The Peer Learning Notes can be downloaded in either English or French by clicking on the link after each description.. Peer Learning Note 1.. Transparency in the Mineral Sector in Sierra Leone.. In January 2012 the Government of Sierra Leone launched an online repository of all mining activity in the country.. This is an important achievement for Sierra Leone, where the unregulated mineral sector exacerbated the country s decade-long civil war.. This mineral sector transparency initiative is a good demonstration of Sierra Leone s commitment to the transparency principles of the New Deal.. Note 1 English.. Apprentissage en équipe, note no1.. MISE EN ŒUVRE DU NEW DEAL.. Transparence dans le secteur des minéraux en Sierra Leone.. En janvier 2012, le gouvernement de Sierra Leone a lancé un répertoire en ligne de toutes les activités minières du pays.. Il s agit d une importante réalisation pour la Sierra Leone, pays où l absence de réglementation du secteur des minéraux a exacerbé une guerre civile qui dura pendant une décennie.. Cette initiative de transparence dans le secteur des minéraux offre une belle démonstration de l engagement de la Sierra Leone envers les principes de transparence du New Deal.. Read more by downloading the note in French:.. Note 1 in French.. Peer Learning Note 2.. Transparency Portals in Timor-Leste.. Throughout 2011 and into 2012, the Government of Timor-Leste made several significant advances in the pursuit of its transparency and good governance agenda through the launching of a series of online portals dedicated to improving public sector transparency.. These online portals form part of a broader initiative, referred to as the Timor-Leste Transparency Model (TLTM), which, according to Timor- Leste, provides a system of 360 degree fiscal accountability chain from the point of resource extraction to the time of investment through reliable, public and shared systems and information.. Note 2 in English.. Apprentissage en équipe, note no2.. METTRE EN ŒUVRE LE NEW DEAL.. Les portails pour la transparence au Timor-Leste.. Tout au long de l année 2011 et au début de 2012, le Gouvernement du Timor-Leste a réalisé plusieurs avancées significatives dans la poursuite de son programme de transparence et de bonne gouvernance en lançant une série de portails en ligne consacrés à l amélioration de la transparence du secteur public.. Ces portails en ligne font partie d une initiative plus vaste, connue sous le nom de Modèle de la transparence du Timor-Leste (TLTM en anglais), qui selon le Gouvernement du Timor-Leste fournit un système de chaîne.. de.. responsabilité.. fiscale.. totalement.. transparente depuis l extraction des ressources jusqu au moment de l investissement au moyen d informations  ...   the Juba Compact.. The New Deal identifies joint Government-Donor compacts as an important way to deliver the New Deal vision.. Compacts have been used in the past to bring donors and the Government together on specific agendas and a lot can be learned from what has worked well and less well in the past.. In 2009, the Government of Southern Sudan and the international community agreed to the Juba Compact‟ in response to a fiscal crisis triggered by collapse of global oil prices.. The compact was an effort to create a new, higher level cooperation‟ between the Government and its Development Partners and was intended to:.. Enhance fiscal responsibility;.. Strengthen public financial management, and;.. Accelerate economic growth.. Note 4 in English.. Apprentissage en équipe, note no4.. Que pouvons-nous apprendre du Pacte de Juba ?.. Le New Deal identifie les pactes communs gouvernement - bailleurs de fonds comme une façon importante de mettre en œuvre la vision du New Deal.. Les pactes ont été utilisés par le passé pour rassembler les bailleurs de fonds et le gouvernement autours d objectifs spécifiques et il y a beaucoup à apprendre de leurs résultats bons ou moins bons.. En 2009, le Gouvernement du Soudan du Sud et la communauté internationale ont adopté le Pacte de Juba en réponse à une crise financière provoquée par l effondrement des cours du pétrole sur les marchés mondiaux.. Le pacte avait pour but de créer une nouvelle collaboration.. plus étroite entre le gouvernement et les partenaires du développement et visait à :.. améliorer la responsabilité fiscale ;.. renforcer la gestion des finances publiques, et ;.. accélérer la croissance économique.. Note 4 in French.. Peer Learning Note 5.. In relation to each.. Apprentissage en équipe, note no5.. Évaluation de la fragilité en Sierra Leone.. La Sierra Leone fut le premier pays à procéder à la mise en œuvre de l évaluation de la fragilité dans le cadre du New Deal.. En saisissant cette opportunité, la Sierra Leone a pu :.. développer une vision nette de la façon dont les Sierra-Léonais envisagent la fragilité et la résilience de leur propre pays ; et.. susciter l entendement et le consensus autour de la fragilité et de la résilience de la Sierra Leone, en vue d informer le nouveau Programme stratégique pour la prospérité et la réduction de la pauvreté.. Cette évaluation de la fragilité représentait six semaines de recherches, entretiens et collecte de données qui s articulaient autour d une semaine d ateliers intensifs impliquant plus de cinquante représentants de ministères et d agences du gouvernement, de diverses régions du pays, du Parlement et de groupes de la société civile.. Dans le cadre de chacun des.. Objectifs de consolidation de la paix et de renforcement de l État (PSG).. , les.. participants ont conjugué leurs efforts pour répondre à cinq questions clés :.. Quelle était la situation en Sierra Leone pendant la crise ?.. Quelle est la situation actuelle de la Sierra Leone ?.. Où souhaitons-nous aller et que nous manque-t-il ?.. Comment évalueriez-vous la position actuelle du pays sur une échelle de 1 (le plus fragile) à 5 (le moins fragile) ?.. Quels types d indicateurs devrait-on utiliser pour surveiller l évolution, et quels sont les plus importants à suivre ?.. Note 5 in French..
