EC launches public consultation to improve budget support to developing countries

Over the past decade, the European Commission has increasingly used general and sector budget support to ACP countries as preferred aid modalities. This choice was motivated by the commitment of donors to make aid more effective. But despite the potential of the new generation of budget support and the so-called ''sector wide approach'', budget support has come under pressure within donors and partner countries for a variety of reasons. Therefore, the European Commission has launched a public… Continue

Global Hunger Index: World is ''nowhere near'' achieving MDG 1

The latest Global Hunger Index (GHI) shows that the number of hungry people in the world grew to one billion last year, as the global economic recession compounded the effects of the 2007-8 food crisis. The first Millennium Development Goal (MDG) — to halve the proportion of hungry people between 1990 and 2015 — is therefore worryingly off-track. The latest GHI report notes that most policies tackling child hunger have targeted children under five years old; however, research shows that the… Continue

Incubators as Tools for Entrepreneurship Promotion in Developing Countries

This UN WIDER paper http://tinyurl.com/ygx65q6 reviews the literature on incubators in developed and developing countries. We show that the concept of incubators has evolved in time according to market and firm needs. Contemporary successful incubators are profit-oriented, provide a wide range of services, focus more on intangible business services, and employ qualified managers and support staff.

Hello Karsten,

Really happy to meet you! (I knew I could find you on this network, it's one of the places to be for us ;) I specially appreciate that kind of questions in your work: "Creating more and better Jobs: What do we know? What can be done?"

I like it because there is a quite easy answer: "No idea. But join this Network & you will see everything we know, who we are & what we are actually doing. Just read, learn, copy, mix, create, share & make friends!"

Here we can coordinate, empower & improve OUR work: Zahid's work, your work, Ida's work, my work: www.conectafrica.wordpress.com

Actually, I really need weitzenegger.de advises (& everybody's advises) on this project, because for the moment it's a stand alone initiative ("Blogs? Don't you have anything serious to do" is the moto down here...) I will send you my CV with European form soon, I hope you can help me. Please fell free to contact me at any time.

Kind regards

Stephane Bajulaz
