Climate change and development are tightly interconnected. In this event, Keywan Riahi, who was involved in creating the development-energy-environment scenarios used by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, talks with World Bank Chief Economist for Climate Change Marianne Fay and colleagues about the ways development and greenhouse gas emissions interact and how different development patterns can lead to different environmental outcomes.

Riahi's work has explored ways of eradicating poverty without increasing greenhouse gas emissions, showing that poverty eradication and universal energy access is compatible with the internationally agreed upon target of keeping global warming under 2°C.

On December 26, 2004, a massive tsunami fanned across the Indian Ocean, striking 14 countries, including Indonesia. Aceh, the country’s northernmost province, was hardest hit with 220,000 people dead or missing and over a half million left homeless. Towns were decimated and infrastructure was left in shambles. The final damage estimate was $6.2 billion.

The Government of Indonesia stepped in to lead the reconstruction process and established the Agency for the Reconstruction and Rehabilitation of Aceh and Nias (BRR) as assistance poured in from around the world. The World Bank Group, along with other international donors, supported the effort through the $700 million-dollar Multi Donor Fund for Aceh and Nias.

Ten years later, a panel reflected on what was lost and what was learned from the experience of rebuilding Aceh back better.

A child’s earliest years present the best window of opportunity to ensure good outcomes later in life. Early childhood development programs that include education, health, nutrition and social protection components have proven to be effective in several countries, but despite this growing evidence, more than 200 million children in developing countries under the age of 5 will not reach their development potential.

The panel discussed how to use the evidence to influence policy makers and scale up investments moving forward to ensure that children not only survive their early years, but also thrive during this period. This event was convened by the World Bank Group and co-hosted by the Global Partnership for Education.

Quand : mardi 16 décembre 2014
Quelle heure : 12h45 – 14h00 à Washington (17h45 -– 19h00 GMT / Votre heure locale ?)
Où : en ligne et au siège de la Banque mondiale à Washington DC.

Les premières années d’un enfant sont déterminantes pour toute la vie. Alors que les programmes pour la petite enfance combinant éducation, santé, nutrition et protection sociale ont fait leurs preuves dans plusieurs pays en développement, plus de 200 millions d’enfants âgés de moins de cinq ans sont privés de ce qui est indispensable à leur plein développement.

Comment promouvoir les données disponibles auprès des responsables politiques et accroître les investissements dans la petite enfance pour faire en sorte que les jeunes enfants non seulement survivent mais s’épanouissent ? Cet enjeu sera au cœur d’une discussion organisée par le Groupe de la Banque mondiale en collaboration avec le Partenariat mondial pour l’éducation (GPE).
