Statement by Angel Gurría and Erik Solheim at the 89th meeting of the Development Committee held on April 12, 2014 (English)

This is a statement by Angel Gurría, Secretary-General, OECD, and Erik Solheim, Chair of the Development Assistance Committee (DAC), at the eighty-ninth meeting of the Development Committee held on April 12, 2014. The international community is set to transition into a critical new phase in its fight against poverty. A number of key issues must be addressed if it is to be successful: disparities between countries must be reduced, as well as a range of inequalities within them. Providers of development co-operation must maintain their commitments on the quantity and quality of the resources they provide, and they must help developing countries mobilise more domestic resources. The OECD is uniquely placed and equipped to support these and other efforts with a number of adapted tools.
