Die Messung der nächsten Globalen Entwicklungsziele

KOPENHAGEN – Zu Beginn des 21. Jahrhunderts hat die internationale Gemeinschaft mit den Millennium-Entwicklungszielen einige kluge und einfache Versprechen abgegeben. Darunter war die Absicht, bis 2015 den Anteil von Menschen, die unter Hunger leiden und in extremer Armut leben, zu halbieren, die Grundschulausbildung für alle zu sichern und die Kindersterblichkeit erheblich zu reduzieren. In vielen Bereichen gab es Erfolge, aber nicht alle dieser Ziele werden erreicht.

Das Ziel der Halbierung des Hungers beispielsweise könnte verfehlt werden – wenn auch nur knapp. Im Jahr 1991 waren 23,4% aller Menschen in den Entwicklungsländern unterernährt. Über eine Milliarde Menschen gingen hungrig zu Bett. Bis 2013 ist dieser Anteil auf 13,5% gefallen. Obwohl in den Entwicklungsländern 1,7 Milliarden Menschen mehr lebten als 1991, hungerten 209 Millionen weniger.. In den letzten 22 Jahren hat die Welt es also geschafft, fast zwei Milliarden Menschen mehr zu ernähren – eine ziemliche Leistung.

Im Laufe des nächsten Jahres werden sich die 193 Regierungen der Welt treffen, um neue globale Ziele zu formulieren, die bis 2030 erreicht werden sollen. Dies ist für unsere Generation die bedeutendste Gelegenheit, hohe Bestrebungen in konkrete Ziele zu verwandeln. Aber um diejenigen Ziele auszuwählen, die am meisten Gutes bewirken, müssen wir aus unseren Erfahrungen lernen.

    The Brexit Surrender

    European Union leaders meeting in Brussels have given the go-ahead to talks with Britain on post-Brexit trade relations.

  3. Murdoch's Last Stand?

    Rupert Murdoch’s sale of 21st Century Fox’s entertainment assets to Disney for $66 billion may mark the end of the media mogul’s career, which will long be remembered for its corrosive effect on democratic discourse on both sides of the Atlantic. 

    From enabling the rise of Donald Trump to hacking the telephone of a murdered British schoolgirl, Murdoch’s media empire has staked its success on stoking populist rage.

    The Dangerous Delusion of Price Stability

    Since the hyperinflation of the 1970s, which central banks were right to combat by whatever means necessary, maintaining positive but low inflation has become a monetary-policy obsession. But, because the world economy has changed dramatically since then, central bankers have started to miss the monetary-policy forest for the trees.

  5. Harvard’s Jeffrey Frankel Measures the GOP’s Tax Plan

    Jeffrey Frankel, a professor at Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government and a former member of President Bill Clinton’s Council of Economic Advisers, outlines the five criteria he uses to judge the efficacy of tax reform efforts. And in his view, the US Republicans’ most recent offering fails miserably.

    The Holy Grail of Genetic Engineering

    CRISPR-Cas – a gene-editing technique that is far more precise and efficient than any that has come before it – is poised to change the world. But ensuring that those changes are positive – helping to fight tumors and mosquito-borne illnesses, for example – will require scientists to apply the utmost caution.
