Key Messages from the 2016 Data Report
- Canada has a great opportunity to provide principled leadership in the areas of sustainable development and shared prosperity on the global stage.
- The 2016 data report shows that engagement on development can no longer be confined to aid policy.
- Canada needs a development strategy that pursues specific yet holistic development objectives in a whole-of-government (and beyond) manner.
- A differentiated approach and more integrated strategy, as we recommend, would need to be anchored around credible increases to the IAE that link resource levels to global needs and Canada’s ambitions.
- In addition, improving policy coherence, closing data and information gaps, and updating Canada’s development toolkit will be important.
