Les gouvernements ne peuvent empêcher le vieillissement de la population, pas plus qu’ils ne peuvent faire abstraction des répercussions économiques qu’aura cette évolution démographique. Par contre, munis des données voulues, ils peuvent en optimiser les avantages et atténuer les risques qui y sont associés.

Governments can’t stop populations from aging nor can they ignore the future economic impact of changing demographics. With the right information, however, they can increase the benefits and offset the risks.

Population aging, demographers will tell you, is inevitable. In countries where fertility is high, large numbers of children will eventually enter the labor force and expect to earn a living. In other countries, declining fertility rates coupled with longer life spans will lead to elderly populations growing faster than other age groups.

This volume brings together 14 essays by feminist thinkers from different parts of the world, reflecting on problems of current patterns of development and arguing for political, economic, and social changes to promote equality and sustainability.

The essays are written in the context of the “triple crises” of food, fuel, and finance, and the underlying deep-seated problems of growing inequality, squeeze on time to provide unpaid care to family and friends, and environmentally unsustainable patterns of economic growth.

Cela fait des siècles que la scène se répète dans la campagne marocaine. Le soleil de la fin de janvier éclaire par la porte ouverte l’intérieur d’une petite dépendance où un cheval aux yeux bandés tourne lentement autour d’une cuve de béton. C’est lui qui actionne le broyeur d’olives en tirant la meule de pierre sous laquelle les membres de la famille poussent la dernière récolte de la saison.
French
It’s a scene that has changed little over the centuries in Morocco’s countryside. In the late January sunlight streaming through the open door of the small outbuilding, a patient, blindfolded horse slowly circles a concrete vat. He is the engine of this olive crusher, pulling the stone grinding wheel under which family members push the last of the season’s harvest.

This book explores the place of poor people within a rich variety of value chains, focusing upon lagging, rural regions in Africa and Asia, and how they can “upgrade” within such chains. Upgrading is a key concept for value chain analysis and refers to the acquisition of technological capabilities and market linkages that enable firms to improve their competitiveness and move into higher-value activities.
