The report identifies five distinctive characteristics of natural resources, which may lead to different types of market imperfections. (...) I believe it is important to reiterate here the key insight of academic research on imperfect markets, i.e., in a world of imperfect markets, the proper policies are second-best, and the appropriateness of a policy should be judged by the nature of the underlying market failures. (...) In the past, the GATT/WTO has successfully designed rules that consider the distinctive need of developing countries. Even for the same type of market imperfection, its effect in developing countries can be vastly different from its effect in developed countries.

Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) are measures taken to determine the achievement of desired results.   The KPIs are delineated along three distinct levels. The first, or highest, level are the corporate KPIs chosen by the Council, and specifically designed to meet defined criteria. (...) Deliverable KPIs are at project/key activity level and measure the most immediate results of the work activities, products or services delivered.

Meanwhile, conflict and violence remain key drivers of internal displacement, also displacing millions of people annually. (...) This side event will explore the parallels and distinctions between internal displacement caused by conflict and disasters as well as good practices, challenges and opportunities in addressing these complex issues. Discussion points · Offer concrete examples of good national practices for reducing displacement risk associated with sudden and slow-onset disasters while often also managing the impact of other causes of displacement, such as conflict and violence · Clarify the commonalities and the distinctions between displacement caused by conflict and disasters in terms of achieving durable solutions for internally displaced persons and why this matters · Outline the evidence needed to inform planning, prevention and responses to better address protracted displacement crises arising from interconnected or multi-causal drivers and help secure durable solutions Key concrete action points and recommendations/take away messages · Some displaced people can never go back home after disasters or conflict, and this needs to be acknowledged, planned for and managed · Reducing protracted internal displacement can only be achieved through durable solutions for people who are already displaced and preventing the conditions that force people to flee their homes · Existing frameworks providing protection and support to IDPs should be implemented with adequate financial and human resources · Stronger evidence on interconnected or multi-causal drivers and impacts of internal displacement is needed to inform better planning, prevention and responses to protracted displacement crises Format · Introduction (5 minutes) The Chair introduces the session, the UN Special Rapporteur on the human rights of IDPs and the panelists · Keynote address (7 minutes) UN Special Rapporteur on the human rights of IDPs · Panel discussion (25 minutes) The Chair asks the panelists questions in an interactive and conversational format · Q&A (45 minutes) Discussion period with the audience Chair and moderator: • OCHA ASG/Deputy ERC Ursula Mueller Panel composition: · UN Special Rapporteur on the human rights of IDPs, Cecilia Jimenez-Damary · Government Representative – Bangladesh (TBC) · Government Representative – Afghanistan (TBC) · IDMC- Director Alexandra Bilak or Head of Policy and Research Bina Desai · Envoy of the Chair of the Platform on Disaster Displacement, Prof.

The framework commits members to “substantial improvements in market access for all products”. Three or four key points emerged in the bargaining over the framework: the type of tariff reduction formula that would produce the agreed result of “substantial improvements in market access”; how all countries’ sensitive products might be treated; how developing countries might be given further flexibility for their “ special products ” and be able to use “ special safeguard ” actions to deal with surges in imports or falls in prices; how to deal with conflicting interests among developing countries over preferential access to developed countries’ markets; and how to provide market access for tropical products and crops grown as alternatives to illicit narcotics . (...) Two controversial questions — whether the formulas should define overall maximum tariff rates (“caps”) and how sensitive products should be treated — are handled in a delicately-worded sentence: “the role of a tariff cap in a tiered formula with distinct treatment for sensitive products will be further evaluated”.    (...) The fine print carefully strikes a balance between different positions by saying the final result should also reflect “the sensitivity of the product”, and it sets some criteria for negotiating the expansion of tariff quotas that are open to all members (“MFN-based”, as distinct from quotas that are set aside for selected members).
