Serving development and fighting inequalities through quality statistics (Project Lab)

This panel discussion will discuss current challenges statistics systems confront linked to new ways of accessing information. Panellists will give their perspective from different regions and institutions and will discuss what is behind the data, in terms of human resources and in terms of technology.

Universal social protection: From poverty to inequality (Lab Debate)

Practical information: June 18th, 5.00PM - D2

The global poverty rate fell from 36% in 1990 to 10% in 2015, or by a billion people. At the same time, inequality rose across the world, particularly in China and India, which have driven the decline in global poverty. Social protection is playing an increasingly important role in reducing poverty thanks to higher coverage, better programmes and greater financing. However, social protection’s potential as a mechanism to reduce inequality is under-utilised, even though it is widely accepted as a key component of inclusive growth strategies.

Organised by SOCIEUX+ with OECD, this session will explore not only whether the time is right to expand the focus of social protection to include inequality and achieve SDG10 but also how unlocking inclusive growth through universal social protection might be key to lasting prosperity for all.

Inequalities in the labour market: new challenges ahead in EU and Latin America (Project Lab)

Practical information: June 18th - 9.30AM - S4

In this Project Lab organised by EUROsociAL+, with the contribution of high level experts in social policies in Latin America and Europe, we will focus on the inequalities that characterize the labour market, faced by both regions. The session will pivot around three axes:

• Contextualization of the state of inequalities in the labour market (with special emphasis on how they affect women and young people)

• Scope and limitations of public employment policies that the UE programme for social cohesion in Latin America, EUROsociAL+, has accompanied for the reduction of these gaps

• Challenges that development actors must face in the future.

Issues: IV industrial revolution, access to employment, precarization, salaries, social dialogue instruments, polarization high / low qualification, generational gap,  investment in future workers´ transversal skills training.

Role of international cooperation: enabling new responses for inclusive growth (High-Level Panel)

Practical information: June 19th - 9.30AM - A1

With: OECD, European commission, Eurosocial+, CEPAL/ECLAC

The main objective of the session will be to facilitate a reflection on the new role that international cooperation under Agenda 2030. As countries transition to higher levels of development, the focus of international cooperation progressively shifts from the volume of financial resources, to its capacity to enable synergies, multilateral cooperation and innovation.

The session will help assess the potential of international cooperation to offer customised responses to constantly evolving development realities and the possible challenges to this shift in focus. EU’s Regional Cooperation with Latin America will be used as an example for rethinking existing structures of cooperation.

The panel is structured in two parts:

 • A first dialogue where Stefano Manservisi (EuropeAid), Alicia Bárcena (ECLAC) and Mario Pezzini (OECD Development Centre) will talk about the evolving role of international cooperation as partner countries move towards higher levels of development, with a special emphasis on EU and Latin American relations and Chapter 5 LEO 2019 - Development in Transition.

 • A second dialogue dedicated to Latin America, where the representatives of the invited countries will discuss the role of international cooperation and in particular the EU, from the perspective of the countries in transition.

In addition, the EUROsociAL+, EUROCLIMA+ and AL INVEST regional programmes will reflect on their relevance in this new scenariofrom their capacity for policy dialogue and putting the agenda into practice.

It showcases a number of projects, including EUROsociAL+, that illustrate how maximising partnerships between European Development Agencies through joint implementation can enhance development results, and therefore address inequalities while contributing to the achievement of the SDGs. The stand will provide insights into joint programmes in different areas & regions, using various types of modalities & showcasing how common effort by European expertise can make a difference in practice.

Organised by the Practitioners' Network.


QUDRA: Resilience - Self-reliance- Strength - Dignity and New Beginnings (stand 62)

Reducing inequalities through improved school infrastructures, access to economic opportunities, support to local administrations and social cohesion

The crisis in Syria resulted in a complex political, security, and social crisis directly affecting Lebanon, Jordan, Iraq, Turkey and Egypt. These countries cannot cope with this enormous challenge in the medium to long term without substantial support from the international community. Syrian refugees face challenges when it comes to protection, access to public services, education and the labour market. At the same time IDPs and vulnerable host communities also need support to overcome inequalities. Technical and vocational training as well as school education and opportunities for dialogue and exchange are therefore central elements for refugees’ participation in host communities and for their reintegration in a post conflict environment.

EUROsociAL+, the EU programme for social cohesion in Latin America (stand 67)

An innovative mechanism for cooperation in the new development context

EUROsociAL+ is an EU Programme that promotes the improvement of social cohesion levels, and the reduction of inequality gaps in 19 Latin American countries.
