World Development Report 2014
Managing Risk for Development


This panel discussion is organised by the Graduate Institute Centre for Finance and Development and the World Bank.
The World Development Report (WDR) 2014 addresses risk management from a multi-sectoral perspective. The report’s research and consultation process includes meetings of experts and policymakers from different fields and in all regions of the world. Among the issues the report seeks to understand are the political economy constraints to prevention; how to identify the responsibilities in risk management at different levels of society; and how to empower them to conduct responsible risk management. During the consultative session the team will present the main motivation and added value of the report as well as its proposed outline. The goal of the session is to obtain feedback on the report’s outline, its scope and the particular issues that should be addressed in it. In addition, the team will welcome any supporting materials that participants think could serve as background pieces for the report.

La malédiction des ressources premières (maladie hollandaise)

La malédiction des ressources premières (maladie hollandaise) | Development studies and int'l cooperation | Scoop.it

« Les études montrent effectivement qu’il y a une certaine tendance à voir les pays riches en minerais jouir d'une croissance économique plus faible que les pays qui sont pauvres en ressources minière et pétrolière. Et c’est un paradoxe, on appelle cela le “paradoxe de l’abondance”, qui s’explique par des facteurs économiques et politiques… » (Gilles Carbonnier, IHEID, Genève)

At the event, Professor Viñuales proposed to create a small transactional tax on bottled water, which would go toward protecting natural infrastructures that maintain the water cycle, supporting water infrastructure projects in developing countries and steering research on water-related technology, including efficiency, decontamination and the use of iced-freshwater.
