Kapuscinski development lecture on "ODA and beyond - understanding the new dynamics in global development" with Angel Gurria, Secretary-General of the OECD
Topic of the lecture: Mr. Gurría will share his perspectives on the evolving landscape of global development. He will discuss how development co-operation and foreign aid fit into this landscape. As financial flows and policies beyond Official Development Assistance (ODA) gain importance, what is the role of ODA in promoting global development, poverty reduction, growth and innovation? What is at stake at the upcoming Fourth High-Level Forum on Aid Effectiveness in Korea? And how is OECD work evolving to meet new global development needs?
Angel Gurría is the Secretary-General of the OECD since June 2006. He was re-appointed to a second mandate in September 2010. As OECD Secretary-General, he has reinforced the OECD's role as a ‘hub' for global dialogue and debate on economic policy issues while pursuing internal modernization and reform. Mr. Gurría is a Mexican national and came to the OECD following a distinguished career in public service in his country, including positions as Minister of Foreign Affairs and Minister of Finance and Public Credit in the 1990s. Mr. Gurría holds a B.A. degree in Economics from UNAM (Mexico) and a M.A. degree in Economics from Leeds University (United Kingdom). He is married and has three children.
