    The 2013 DATA Report: Special Report Tracking Development Assistance

    As a region, sub-Saharan Africa has already made more than 40% of the progress required to reach the MDG targets for gender parity in education, child mortality, maternal mortality and access to safe water, ahead of the 2015 deadline. et that progress remains uneven and the job is not finished. As the world begins to turn its attention to the post-2015 period, it’s crucial that we build momentum to achieve the current MDGs in the last two-and–a-half years. This will take a concerted effort from African governments, donor governments, and international partners to sustain financing and to ensure transparent and accountable use of all resources for development.

    The SUN, Moon and Stars: A Nutrition Policy Agenda for the Next 1,000 Days

    On June 8th, just days before the 2013 G8 Summit, UK Prime Minister David Cameron will convene world leaders in London for a high-level “golden moment” focused on the issue of undernutrition. Particular attention will be paid to meeting the nutritional needs of mothers and children during the critical “1,000 day” period from pregnancy to two years of age, which has lifelong consequences for growth, health and intellectual capacity.

    New Alliance for Food Security and Nutrition: Part 2

    We confront the concerns about the New Alliance and ask: are investments in the New Alliance designed to deliver these benefits to farmers? Do New Alliance investments treat smallholder farmers as simply buyers of multinational companies’ products, or as entrepreneurs and sellers of their own agricultural products? How are women farmers being included? And finally, what does the New Alliance plan to do about improving interrelated issues like nutrition and postharvest storage that affect the welfare and livelihoods of farmers and their families?

    1000 Days to Go: Accelerating the Fight against Extreme Poverty

    On April 5, 2013, the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) deadline will be just 1,000 days away. Where do we stand on these ambitious goals? Have we collectively done enough to convert them into reality? And what needs to happen during the last 1,000 days to ensure that the world not only sprints to the finish line – but blows right through it?

    Electrify Africa: Providing Energy Access in sub-Saharan Africa

    589 million people in sub-Saharan Africa—68% of the population—do not have access to electricity or other modern energy services and roughly 30 African countries face endemic power shortages. This hampers services in health and education, profoundly limits economic development and disproportionately affects women. This lack of energy access is a major barrier to eradicating poverty in Africa, yet there is a way to change this. Providing access to reliable and affordable energy is one of the most powerful development multipliers—giving those trapped in subsistence lifestyles the means to work their way out of poverty.

    Open for Development

    This spring, the UN is meeting to decide the framework for ending global poverty. The agenda set at that meeting will affect the livelihoods, the health, and the futures of millions of the world’s poorest people. But right now, those people are not involved in that agenda-setting process. Worse yet, they don’t even know it’s happening. ONE believes that the path to ending extreme poverty must be one that factors in the voices of those actually living in extreme poverty.

    New Alliance for Food Security and Nutrition: Part 1

    Here at ONE, when we think of the New Alliance, we immediately think of this ambitious goal of lifting 50 million people out of poverty. However, to others, the New Alliance remains a mystery, shrouded in confusion and misunderstanding. Some of the criticism of the initiative has been fueled by an assumption that it is dominated by large U.S. multinational companies and in particular by large seed and fertilizer companies. We decided to dig deeper and find out which companies are involved, where they’re based, what they intend to do, and how much money they’re planning to invest.

    The Beginning of the End? Tracking Global Commitments on AIDS

    Much progress has been made across these three targets, and many stakeholders are making significant contributions to the fight against AIDS. But ultimately, the report finds that without a heightened sense of urgency and without collective action starting in 2013, the beginning of the end of AIDS will remain a distant ambition, and millions of lives will hang in the balance.
