La cooperación española al desarrollo abandona la lucha contra la pobreza
Estudios de Política Exterior. Economía Exterior # 67. Invierno 2013

La AOD en África sigue la hoja de ruta del resto de la cooperación española hacia los países derenta media. Dado que los PMA se ubican principalmente en la región subsahariana, el repliegue tanto presupuestario como presencial es mucho más notorio que en otras regiones prioritarias. La política de ayuda oficial al desarrollo (AOD) española se ve recortada de nuevo en su presupuesto para 2014. El proyecto de Presupuestos Generales del Estado (PGE) contempla una reducción del 4,7 por cien de término medio en el gasto asignado a los distintos ministerios, y particularmente, baja el presupuesto del ministeriode Asuntos Exteriores y de Cooperación (MAEC) un 8,8 por cien. En este ministerio el presupuesto destinado a Cooperación al Desarrollo cae a suvez, un seis por cien, que acumulado a los dos últimos ejercicios (2012 y el año en curso), supone una disminución de más de un 60%.

Intergenerational transmission of disadvantage statistics
Is the likelihood of poverty inherited?
Statistics in focus 27/2013
One of the headline targets of the Europe 2020 strategy for jobs and smart, sustainable and inclusive growth is the reduction of poverty by lifting at least 20 million people out of the risk of poverty or social exclusion by 2020. Poverty is a multidimensional socioeconomic phenomenon caused both by aggregated factors such as macroeconomic, social and labour policies and by individual factors like level of education, health or social interaction in society. The analysis of intergenerational disadvantages is aimed at measuring the extent of transmission or persistence of individual factors through generations. The European Union statistics on income and living conditions (EU-SILC) 2011 data are used for the purpose of the analysis. [+]

CoverHousehold composition, poverty and hardship across Europe - 2013 edition
This Working Paper examines the relationship between household composition and several measures of income sufficiency, including two measures of relative poverty and two measures of subjective hardship. Data from the European Union Statistics on Income and Living Conditions (EU-SILC) are used to calculate the risk of poverty and hardship by household type for all countries in the EU. It is found that whereas the importance of different household types varies greatly between countries, the same household types are at the highest risk of poverty and hardship in virtually all countries: lone parents, single elderly people, and other single-adult households. However, while these at-risk groups account for a majority of the poor population across Northern and Western Europe, they account for only a minority of the poor population across Eastern and Southern Europe.

En la última década, gracias a la financiación de la UE, casi 14 millones de alumnos han podido asistir a la escuela primaria, más de 46 millones de personas han recibido dinero en efectivo u otros beneficios en especie para garantizar su seguridad alimentaria y más de 7,5 millones de nacimientos han contado con la ayuda de personal sanitario cualificado, con lo que se salvaron las vidas de las madres y de los recién nacidos. Estos son solo algunos de los nuevos resultados publicados hoy por la Comisión Europea sobre la forma en que se ha ayudado a reducir la pobreza en el mundo y se ha apoyado la consecución de los Objetivos de Desarrollo del Milenio (ODM), mejorando la vida de millones de personas.
Los nuevos resultados, que abarcan las actividades de la UE entre 2004 y 2012, se publican unos días antes de un acto especial de las Naciones Unidas en Nueva York en que se estudiará la manera de agilizar el avance en la erradicación de la pobreza y de formular un programa mundial completo de desarrollo después de 2015. José Manuel Barroso, Presidente de la Comisión Europea, participará en el acto, junto con el comisario de Desarrollo, Andris Piebalgs, y el comisario de Medio Ambiente, Janez Potočnik.

CoverIndividual employment, household employment and risk of poverty in the EU - A decomposition analysis - 2013 edition
This Working Paper explores the missing links between employment policy success and social inclusion policy failure. The focus is on individuals in the 20 to 59 age cohort and empirical analyses are relying on the EU Labour Force Survey (EU LFS) and the EU Statistics on Income and Living Conditions (EU SILC). The analysis proceeds in two steps. The first step considers the distribution of individual jobs over households, thus establishing a link between individual employment rates and household employment rates and measuring the size of unequal distribution of employment over households. The second step in the analysis matches employment at both levels of aggregation with poverty. The proposed methodology does yield interesting insights into the trajectories that individual EU welfare states have followed over the past ten years. [+]
