主题:国际发展之未来走向

201442日下午,由国际发展研究网络(CIDRN)主办的第九期公共讲座在北京昆仑饭店举行。本次讲座特邀英国国际发展部发展大臣贾斯汀·格里宁(Rt Hon Justine Greening MP)女士作题为国际发展之未来走向的主题演讲。讲座由中国国际发展研究网络主席、中国农业大学人文与发展学院院长李小云教授主持。此次公共讲座有来自外交部、商务部、农业部、卫生与计生委、中国国际扶贫中心(IPRCC)、联合国开发计划署(UNDP)、英国国际发展部(DFID)、德国国际合作机构(GIZ)、日本国际协力机构(JICA)、亚洲基金会、盖茨基金会、乐施会、现代国际关系研究院、社科院、北京大学、清华大学、中国农业大学等十余家机构的百余位代表参与。

格里宁女士首先总结了在千年发展目标(MDGs)指导下国际发展取得的成果,特别提到在过去二十年中全球贫困人数下降了一半,其中大部分来自中国减贫的卓越贡献。她同时指出,中国和英国一直以来在投资、促进和平、减灾等领域保持良好合作,减贫是双方合作中最为直接的共同目标。之后,格里宁女士具体阐述了英国针对后2015国际发展议程的工作重点领域,包括:推动诸如健康、营养、教育、卫生和安全水等基本服务的可获得性;促进性别平等,特别关注女童和妇女的权益;推动私营部门的经济增长,提供就业并增加收入。中英双方新的合作方向将共同协作致力于促进非洲的经济发展,特别是促进非洲贸易发展。发展、和平与稳定对促进减贫至关重要。最后,格里宁女士指出,当前国际发展正处在变革的十字路口,在后2015时期,中英双方在减贫领域需要继续开展更加行之有效的双边合作。

CIDRN Public Event Series (9)

Topic: The Future of International Development

 

The China International Development Research Network (CIDRN) hosted public event series No.9 took place in the Hotel Kunlun, on the afternoon of April 2nd, 2014. Rt Hon Justine Greening MP, the UK Secretary of State for International Development, made a keynote speech on the future of international development for the event which was moderated by Prof. Li Xiaoyun, Chair of CIDRN and Dean of College of Humanities and Development Studies, China Agricultural University(CAU) and well attended by over 120 people from the Chinese government, international organizations, academic community and NGOs like Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MOFA), Ministry of Commerce (MOFCOM), Ministry of Agriculture (MOA), National Health and Family Planning Commission (NHFPC), the International Poverty Reduction Center in China (IPRCC), UNDP, WHO, DFID, GIZ, JICA, USAID, the Asia Foundation, the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, Oxfam, China Institutes of Contemporary International Relations (CICIR), the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences (CASS), Peking University, Tsinghua University, and CAU, etc.

 

In the beginning of her speech, Justine Greening touched upon the progress towards MDGs and emphasized China’s phenomenal contribution to the global fight against poverty which brought the number of the poor to a half in the past two decades. She further pointed out that China and the UK has been good partners in many fields ranging from investment, peace-building to disaster mitigation, with poverty reduction an overarching goal for each side of the cooperation. Justine elaborated then on the priority fields for UK’s post-2015 international development agenda which included getting the basics (health, nutrition, education, water and sanitation) to every one; promoting gender equality, helping give girls and women a voice, choice and control over their lives; driving the private sector’s growth to let people get a job and have an income. Thus, a new direction for the China-UK’s cooperation would be to boost Africa’s economic development, especially the trade, which was essential for poverty reduction in the continent. Justine ended by saying that international development was at a crossroad now which was the context for China and UK to conduct more effective collaborations for tackling poverty.

  

The Q&A session afterwards provided a good platform for exchange of views where participants from MOFCOM, NHFPC, CICIR, Peking University, CAU, UNDP and Oxfam discussed with Justine Greening issues concerning the post-2015 international development agenda and global partnerships, aid, trade and investment ties, ownership of the partner country, priority fields for international development, roles of traditional donors, emerging actors, international organizations, NGOs and private sectors in the future of international development, South-South Cooperation and trilateral cooperation, etc.
