When the Drugs Don’t Work – Antibiotic Resistance as a Global Development Problem

2019/02 – Dag Hammarskjoeld Foundation (DHF); research paper; Author(s): Maarten van der Heijden et al

Why is there a need to address antibiotic resistance in the context of the Sustainable Development Goals? Because antibiotics play a crucial role in many more areas of life than most people imagine. However, antibiotics are starting to lose their effectiveness due to resistant infections, and the consequences will be far-reaching if decisive and rapid action is not taken globally and systematically. Antibiotic resistance seriously jeopardises the achievement of several of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Therefore, antibiotic resistance must be included in the work on sustainable development, and should be seen as a strong additional reason to urgently increase the work on the Sustainable Development Goals. The Dag Hammerskjoeld Foundation has published a report on how antibiotic resistance is linked to the Sustainable Development Goals.

2019/02 – OECD Development Centre (OECD/DC); research paper; Author(s): Oecd

This study by the OECD Development Centre is now available in open access. It identifies possible futures and explores new paths for action in six countries in East Africa – Ethiopia, Kenya, Mozambique, Tanzania, Uganda and Zambia. It highlights seven grand challenges that confront social protection policy makers in the region and discusses which policy directions are most appropriate for tackling today’s social protection needs and preparing for those of tomorrow. A number of these challenges, such as rapid population growth and urbanisation, persistent informality, low domestic resource mobilisation and climate change, are common to sub-Saharan Africa as a whole; the methodology and approach used here will be applicable to many other countries across the region.

2019/02 – Institut du développement durable et des relations internationales (IDDRI); research paper; Author(s): Ingeborg Niestroy et al.

This study examines the governance frameworks put in place for SDG implementation in all EU Member States, and the resulting country fiches constitute the first comprehensive comparative overview of these. The analysis shows that EU Member States are integrating SDGs into national strategies. While Member States have taken steps to enhance horizontal policy coordination, there is a continuing need for better mainstreaming sustainability. Member States innovate with SDG budgeting, science-policy interface, and stakeholder participation mechanisms for making these strategies more operational. Parliaments show increasing activity on the SDGs and the EP could benefit from enhanced collaboration. The EU could learn from and support these initiatives.

2019/01 – Transnational Institute (TNI); research paper; Author(s): Ann Pettifor et al.

Despite causing the worst financial crisis in decades, the financial sector emerged even stronger. The Transnational Institute's eighth flagship State of Power report examines through essays and infographics the varied dimensions and dynamics of financial power, and how popular movements might regain control over money and finance. In addition, it includes six compelling infographics that tell you everything you need to know about financial power. Who controls banks? Investment Funds? Where are they based? How is power concentrated? What difference does this make to corporations in general? How do banks influence public policy? How do financial institutions remain impune? What alternatives are there.
