虽然有些研究预测自动化将会飞速取代一些工作,但颠覆性技术也能够创造出新的工作。世行《2019年世界发展报告:工作性质的改变》(草稿)指出,在过去一个世纪,机器人创造的工作岗位超过了他们取代的数量。技术具有急剧改变我们生活、工作和组织方式的能力,使我们不禁要问:我们如何调整今天的技能和知识,才能符合明天的工作需要?
 
一个回答是利用数据革命来支持新的发展路径。手机、传感器、在线平台和其它来源每天产生2.5个五万亿字节的数据。当数据被用于帮助个人适应技术主导型经济,就能对消除极端贫困和不平等作出巨大贡献。不过,技术公司即使用意良好,也不可能独立完成这项任务。

我荣幸地宣布,新组建的数据创新基金现开始接受第二轮资金申请。该基金在上个月举办的联合国高级别政治论坛上宣布组建,将对“合作开展数据领域创新,促进可持续发展”倡议投入高达250万美元。所谓数据领域创新,系指可改进穷国数据制作、管理和使用的创意。该基金今年的主题领域是“不落下任何人”和环境。

详细了解申请资格、申请标准以及申请流程,请点击:bit.ly/wb-gpsdd-innovationfund-2017。该倡议得到了世界银行统计能力建设信托基金的支持,英国国际发展部、韩国政府以及爱尔兰外交和贸易部对其提供了资助,其中英国国际发展部对该信托基金的资助额最大。
 
支持统计工作,促进发展
 
身为世界银行发展数据局工作人员,我们期盼在去年举办的首轮创新资金试点申请活动取得成功之后,再次同可持续发展数据全球伙伴机制开展合作。不过,您可能会问:世界银行数据局为何要帮助管理数据领域创新基金?

世界银行近期启动大数据创新挑战赛,继续推进数据革命

Marianne Fay's picture

2016年9月22日,我们启动了世界银行大数据创新挑战赛,呼吁全球借助大数据找出应对气候变化和促进可持续发展的方案。
 
随着全球借助手机、社交媒体、互联网、卫星以及地面传感器和机器而不断增强互联互通, 各国政府和各经济体需要找出更好办法,利用大数据为制定旨在增强气候变化应对能力尤其是最脆弱人群的应对能力的专项政策和行动出谋划策。为使此类数据更好地服务于发展,我们需要开展更多创新活动,也要找出创新型公私合作安排,促进数据领域合作。

 世界银行大数据创新挑战赛现邀请世界各地的创新者借助大数据解决方案构想如何提升气候变化应对能力,进而解决粮食安全与营养以及林业和流域管理等核心领域面临的问题。这些领域是世行《气候和森林行动计划》以及联合国可持续发展目标的重点内容。

最大限度把公共部门债务统计数据用于分析工作:D1-D4矩阵法

Rubena Sukaj's picture

世界银行发展经济学数据局金融数据团队高兴地宣布,其第二期《在线季度简报》发布。该电子版简报主要介绍债务统计方面的新闻、趋势及事件。本期简报的主要内容如下:

  • 对公共部门债务统计数据进行整理编排,以便最大限度地将其用于分析工作和国际比较。

  • 2015年度低收入和中等收入国家的债券发行情况。

  • 2015年高收入国家的外债趋势。

  • 债务统计相关事件汇总。

本期简报的一大亮点是介绍了一种用于呈现公共部门季度债务数据的方法,即D1-D4矩阵法。公共部门季度债务统计项目的主要目标是为公共部门债务的每个方面设定一个标准化衡量指标。公共部门季度债务数据库呈现了同一套债务工具下的国别数据,如1)债务性证券;2)贷款;3)货币和储蓄;4)特别提款权;5)其它应付帐;6)针对经济领域以下机构债务的标准化担保计划:(1)一般性政府债务;(2)中央政府债务;(3)预算内中央政府债务;(4)非金融类公共公司债务;(5)金融类公共公司债务;(6)汇总后的公共部门债务总额。

全世界四分之一国家没有将拟定的新商业法规告知公众

政府行为的透明度和问责制日益逐渐被公认为是经济发展和政治稳定的核心。在公民了解治理社会的规则并在制定规则过程中发挥一定作用的情况下,他们更有可能遵守这些规则。腐败程度越低,监管的质量越高。此外,公民参与政府制定规则的流程,是创造投资者做出长期规划和投资之商业环境的关键。

全球监管治理指标项目团队抽样的185个国家中,138个国家会在正式采用拟定的新法规之前将其告知公众。发出公告的大多数国家是高收入的经合组织经济体或欧洲和中亚地区经济体。

Today, April 22, 2016, marks a key moment for the world with the signing of the historic Paris climate change agreement. A record number of world leaders are expected in New York at the United Nations Headquarters for the high-level signing ceremony.

It’s a clear sign that people recognize that the changing climate is impacting us now – the recent record-breaking temperature, spread of infectious diseases, and climatic conditions, are increasingly alarming and must be dealt with before it’s too late. Now is the time for action and for countries and governments to deliver on their promises made in Paris.

I’ve answered some questions that will better help explain why the signing of the Paris Agreement is critical and how we in the World Bank Group are stepping up our efforts to help countries deliver on their pledges.

Bangladesh has set an ambitious goal to become a middle-income country by 2021—the year it celebrates the 50th anniversary of its independence. Equally important to achieving the coveted middle income status is making sure that all Bangladeshis share in the accelerated growth required to achieve this goal, particularly the poor. The Government of Bangladesh’s Vision 2021 and the associated Perspective Plan 2010-2021 lay out a series of development targets that must be achieved if Bangladesh wants to transform itself to a middle income country. Among the core targets used to monitor the progress towards this objective is attaining a poverty head-count rate of 14 percent by 2021. Assuming population growth continues to decline at the same rate as during the 2000-2010 period, achieving this poverty target implies lifting approximately 15 million people out of poverty in the next 8 years. Can Bangladesh achieve this target? Not necessarily so. A simple continuation of the policies and programs that have proven successful in delivering steady growth and poverty reduction in the past decade will not be sufficient to achieve the poverty target set for 2021.

Over the next few months, governments worldwide will be preparing their national contributions to our collective need to combat climate change. These plans will form the foundation of a new international climate agreement to be agreed in Paris in one year’s time. Collective ambition matters now more than ever. We all have a responsibility to make the choices that will lower the risks created by decades of greenhouse gas emissions and usher in an era of job-rich, more-inclusive, cleaner economic development.
 
Scientists have provided us with a remarkable consensus. We believe that with this evidence, we have the strong foundation for action. That’s good news, because climate action has to scale up now.
 
This week and next at the UN climate negotiations in Lima (COP20), there is a sense that gridlock may be easing. The U.S. and China – the world's two largest emitters – set a strong pace last month when Presidents Barack Obama and Xi Jinping stood together and jointly announced their top-line commitments for cutting emissions. Their pledges, along with commitments from the European Union and donor support for the Green Climate Fund, auger well for the Lima talks. But this was always billed as the finance COP, and how we finance the transition to deep decarbonization and lasting resilience requires a coming together that has eluded us to date.

One Generation, Two Goals; 60 Seconds

It is said that some employees are hired because of their technical skills, but fired due to their behaviors or attitudes, such as arriving late or showing a lack of commitment to achieve the firms’ goals. This complaint seems to be frequently mentioned during our many discussions with Filipino employers.
 
But what does the hard evidence show, beyond anecdotal remarks? Do Filipino employers have difficulty finding workers with the right “soft skills” (socio-emotional skills, right attitudes and behaviors)? And if so, do we have evidence that it leads to better pay? And how are employers, employees and government responding to these labor market signals?

I would like to follow up on Paul’s interesting comments on information sharing and the need in particular for timeliness.  He raises a number of issues on when to share information and this is where I would like to come in.  My background relies on information sharing across disciplines, be they units in the Bank or wider afield to other agencies such as Multi Lateral Development Banks (MDB) with their own integrity/investigations function or to law enforcement.  And herein lies the difference between information managed by law enforcement when compared to that of the development community.  In our search for timeliness – often a crucial issue for law enforcement it is not so for the development community, and in some ways this is essential as it allows us to first evaluate the reliability of the source of the information and then question the validity of the information.  One may ask why we should do this, and the simple answer is – we must be able to satisfy ourselves that we have undertaken our own due diligence and are confident that the information we are providing will add value to the enforcement entity with whom we share the information.  For instance we may find that after questioning the source of the data we ascertain that the information is not known directly to the source it is in fact a regurgitation of information relayed to him/her by someone else – and therefore while our source may be good the validity of our information could be questioned.
