ICAI report: DFID Private Sector Development Work (Amber-Red)

ICAI report: DFID Private Sector Development Work (Amber-Red) | NGOs in Human Rights, Peace and Development | Scoop.it

Key Findings:

 

DFID has been coherent and consistent in its view that developing the private sector in a country is central to its economic development and to poverty reduction. DFID sees its work in this area as helping countries graduate from a dependency on aid. The scale of the challenge, however, is immense and DFID’s approach is highly ambitious. The department plans to spend £1.8 billion on economic development in 2015-16 – more than doubling the amount spent in 2012-13.

 

DFID’s private sector development work encompasses a wide range of different programmes: macro approaches to trade policy and regulatory reform, mid-level development of market systems and micro support to small enterprises and individuals. The impact of individual programmes is positive – particularly at the micro-level – and DFID has demonstrated its ability to assist the poor through a range of interventions.

 

DFID has not, however, turned its high ambitions into clear guidance to develop a realistic, well-balanced and joined-up country-level portfolio of programmes. There is pressure to demonstrate results against measurable targets. In none of the countries we visited did we see a plan for – or assessment of – the cumulative impact of programmes, so it was unclear how well DFID’s work overall is transforming the private sector as a tool for economic growth and poverty reduction.

 

 

Recommendation 1: DFID should clearly define and articulate where it can add most value in private sector development relative to other stakeholders. It should be more realistic in its ambitions and the impact it seeks to achieve.

 

Recommendation 2: DFID should provide clearer guidance to its staff on how to design a coherent and well-balanced private sector development country portfolio that matches its goals for an end to extreme poverty through economic development and transformational change.

 

Recommendation 3: DFID needs better to calibrate and manage the risks associated with private sector development and so innovate in a more informed fashion.

 

Recommendation 4: DFID needs to work harder to understand the barriers and business imperatives faced by the private sector in participating in development. Wherever it operates, DFID needs to be clear how and where its interventions can address these barriers.

China, Iran and Russia Redefining New World Order: UT Professor | NGOs in Human Rights, Peace and Development | Scoop.it

"Many countries have protested against these US imperial dictates, but have so far largely abided by US demands in order to avoid its aggressive behavior. However, with threats now being made against the Russian Federation, alarm bells have begun ringing, as powerful countries see themselves as potential future targets. Economic warfare against another major power will force emerging economic powerhouses to seriously think about the future of global financial and communications systems as well as the immediate need to enhance cooperation and to restructure the global political and economic order."

In 1948, the CIA was transformed into a paramilitary organization, empowered under law to engage in “propaganda, economic warfare, sabotage, subversion against hostile states through assistance to underground resistance movements and guerillas.” Ever since, the CIA has engineered world events for U.S. hegemony.

Video Interview: EU Pact Furthers Ukraine's NATO Integration

Video Interview: EU Pact Furthers Ukraine's NATO Integration | NGOs in Human Rights, Peace and Development | Scoop.it

And we have to recall that he said recently very strongly that the EU insisted that should Ukraine sign the association agreement, which is now going to happen under the auspices of the US proxy regime in Kiev, then that would necessarily preclude Ukraine joining the projected Customs Union with Russia, Belarus, Kazakhstan and perhaps Armenia.

This is economic warfare against Russia, it’s an attempt to destroy what remains of the Commonwealth of Independent States, that is the post-Soviet economic formation. And it is an attempt to further integrate Ukraine into the US-NATO military network.

That is, I think, the most important matter to understand in this transformation of the last month

The Financial War Against the Economy at Large » Counterpunch: Tells the Facts, Names the Names

The Financial War Against the Economy at Large » Counterpunch: Tells the Facts, Names the Names | NGOs in Human Rights, Peace and Development | Scoop.it

Today’s economic warfare is not the kind waged a century ago between labor and its industrial employers. Finance has moved to capture the economy at large, industry and mining, public infrastructure (via privatization) and now even the educational system. (At over $1 trillion, U.S. student loan debt came to exceed credit-card debt in 2012.) The weapon in this financial warfare is no longer military force. The tactic is to load economies (governments, companies and families) with debt, siphon off their  income as debt service and then foreclose when debtors lack the means to pay. Indebting government gives creditors a lever to pry away land, public infrastructure and other property in the public domain. Indebting companies enables creditors to seize employee pension savings. And Indebting labor means that it no longer is necessary to hire strikebreakers to attack union organizers and strikers.
