PREFACE  REDEFINING GLOBAL ROLES IN 2001- AMERICA’S PRIORITY IN 2017

  1. GLOBALIZATION IN 2001- AMERICA’S PRIORITY IN 2017

………………………………….

Attributable to GLOBALIZATION or not, the roles of corporations, the public sector, and civil society have been redefined.

 THE CHANGE IN THE ROLE OF NATIONAL GOVERNMENTS IS THE MOST EVIDENT-AND MOST SIGNIFICANT FOR THE CASE OF THE WCD.

———————————————

GLOBAL IN 2001- AMERICA’S PRIORITY IN 2017

NATIONAL GOVERNMENTS HAVE WITNESSED A THREE-WAY MIGRATION OF THE AUTHORITY-VOLUNTARY OR INVOLUNTARY-ONCE VESTED IN THEM:

———————————————

GLOBAL IN 2001- AMERICA’S PRIORITY IN 2017

UPWARD MIGRATION TO SUPRANATIONAL STRUCTURES WITH FUNCTIONS ONCE VESTED

SOLELY IN THE STATE, SUCH AS THE EUROPEAN UNION (“EU”), THE INTERNATIONAL

MONETARY FUND (“IMF”), OR THE WORLD TRADE ORGANIZATION (“WTO”);

 DOWNWARD MIGRATION TO REGIONAL AND LOCAL LEVELS OF GOVERNMENT, IN KEEPING WITH THE PRINCIPLE OF SUBSIDIARITY

—————————————————–

GLOBAL IN 2001- AMERICA’S PRIORITY IN 2017

AND IN RESPONSE TO PUBLIC DEMAND FOR LIGHTER CENTRAL GOVERNMENT STRUCTURES;

 AND OUTWARD MIGRATION TO THE MARKET, CORPORATIONS, AND ELEMENTS OF CIVIL SOCIETY.

————————————————————-

GLOBAL IN 2001- AMERICA’S PRIORITY IN 2017

MANY FUNCTIONS FORMERLY RESTING WITH GOVERNMENT ARE NOW PRIVATIZED,

OR ABANDONED AND ADOPTED BY NON-GOVERNMENTAL ORGANIZATIONS (“NGOS”)

and other elements of civil society.

—————————————————————–

I SUGGEST ABOVE THAT THOSE GROUPS WITH THE GREATEST ADAPTIVE CAPACITY

HAVE BENEFITED FROM RAPID GLOBAL CHANGE, WHILE THOSE WITH THE GREATEST DIFFICULTY IN EMBRACING CHANGE HAVE SUFFERED.

————————————————

IN 2001- PRIORITY IN 2017

PROMINENT AMONG THESE ARE THE INTERGOVERNMENTAL INSTITUTIONS  AT THE

FOREFRONT OF GLOBAL ECONOMIC MANAGEMENT-THE WORLD BANK, THE IMF,

THE WTO-AND TO A LESSER EXTENT THE ORGANIZATIONS OF THE UNITED NATIONS.

—————————————————————-

GLOBAL IN 2001- AMERICA’S PRIORITY IN 2017

THESE ORGANIZATIONS, DESPITE ATTEMPTS AT COMMUNICATION WITH NGOS, RETAIN A

DECISION-MAKING STRUCTURE THAT IS BARELY ACCOUNTABLE TO GOVERNMENTS.

helping to meet human needs and bettering human prospects is what

the process of development must address. THESE GOALS MUST BE PLACED

  1. REDEFINING ROLES

 

THE WORLD BANK IS THE AGENCY in this group most relevant to the

dams debate. Its traditional mode of operation-high-level dealing

with central governments on the basis of a technical dossier-too

often leads to results that are problematic, leaving behind a number

of failures. The factors behind these failures are significant for the dams debate, as

DOCUMENTED IN THE LINKS PROVIDED.
