Oxfam today calls for greater scrutiny and control of the funding for development channeled through financial intermediaries such as private equity funds, banks and credit agencies. Private funds often lack transparency, accountability and can lead to land grabs Oxfam today calls for greater scrutiny and control of the funding for development channeled through financial intermediaries such as private equity funds, banks and credit agencies. The international agency is concerned that the new model of lending, increasingly used by development finance institutions such as the World Bank’s private sector investment arm, the International Finance Corporation, is having a negative impact on the lives of the poorest people particularly when used in investments affecting access to land and other natural resources. In a new briefing Risky business: intermediary lending and development finance , Oxfam and the Centre for International Environment Law calculate that over half of the lending of ...

Will this be the 'Asian century'? | Stephen P Groff 18.4.2012 The Guardian -- World Latest
Embracing globalisation and regional co-operation has helped bring Asia success. Greater economic access and inclusion, and improved governance, would bring further gains Asia's rapid rise is the most successful story of economic development in recent history. Income per capita reached nearly $5,000 in purchasing power parity terms in 2010. Investment rates averaged 35% of GDP over the decade. The number of people living below the $1.25-a-day poverty line fell by 430 million between 2005 and 2010. With such achievements at a time when much of the rest of the world struggles with austerity measures and economic recovery, Asian leaders might be tempted to switch to autopilot. But closer examination of the region's economic and social prospects soon reveals many paradoxes. The world's fastest growing region remains home to nearly half the world's extreme poor. While Asia has made tremendous inroads in the fight against poverty, not enough of the region's economic prosperity is reaching its ...

World is failing South Sudan – Brown 18.4.2012 The Guardian -- World Latest
Former PM launches attack on global community for failure to improve education in world's newest country The former prime minister Gordon Brown is to deliver a strong attack on international aid donors for their failure to tackle an education crisis in the world's newest country, South Sudan . In a report timed to coincide with this week's spring meetings of the World Bank and International Monetary Fund in Washington, Brown said that action to put an extra 1 million children into school in the conflict-ravaged country was a test case. Brown criticised the "half-measures, hesitation and indifference" that meant that a girl in South Sudan is more likely to die during pregnancy or in childbirth than to make it into secondary education. He called for $1.6bn to be mobilised over the next four years. This would, the former PM said, provide better education for 2 million children, half of them currently out of school; give financial support for the schooling of half a million girls; make ...

President Cristina Fernández accused of hostile action by Spanish ministers who promise retaliation Spain pledged to wage diplomatic and industrial war on Argentina after the country's populist president, Cristina Fernández, announced plans to nationalise the Spanish-owned part of oil company YPF.
