Mais si les statistiques sont biaisées, les informations communiquées et les déductions le seront aussi.

Investments to End Poverty launched today: a goldmine of killer facts and infographics | International aid trends from a Belgian perspective | Scoop.it

Today sees the launch of the killer fact-tastic inaugural Investments to End Poverty report by Development Initiatives. The report makes the case for aid as an essential part of ‘getting to zero’ on absolute poverty by 2030, but as is increasingly the norm, the report locates aid among the much wider issue of development-related resource flows, both domestic and international.
