Which trends to watch in international development for 2012?

As the world adjusts to seven billion people, and begins its creep toward eight billion, doing more with less will become increasingly important.  Continuing economic stagnation and budgetary concerns in OECD countries will also put stress on existing commitments of foreign assistance and hamper new initiatives. Greater efficiency and effectiveness in development is paramount. Below are three trends to watch in the coming year that can help improve development outcomes.

  1. mHealth and mGovernance
  2. Agricultural Productivity
  3. Establishing Identity

  1. The Commitment to Development Index (CDI), published annually by the Center for Global Development , ranks the world’s richest countries on their dedication to policies that benefit the five billion people living in poorer nations. Rich and poor countries are linked in many ways; thus the Index looks beyond standard comparisons of foreign aid flows. It measures “development-friendliness” of 27 of the world’s richest countries, all member nations of the OECD’s Development Assistance Committee . The CDI assesses national effort in seven policy areas: aid, trade, investment, migration, environment, security, and technology.
