Eurodad's priorities for 2020

2020 starts the ten-year countdown for the successful implementation of the Sustainable Development Goals. It is also a critical period for a just response to climate change, ensuring that those who are the least responsible do not pay the greatest price.  Eurodad Director Jean Saldanha explores some of the issues Eurodad will tackle in 2020.


Eurodad response to today's statement by the Inclusive Framework on BEPS

Tove Maria Ryding, Tax Coordinator at Eurodad, comments on today's statement by the Inclusive Framework on BEPS.

Given that the current transfer pricing rules have proven to be both ineffective and deeply unfair, it is highly problematic that they will continue as a cornerstone of the international corporate tax system.

Mobilising private development finance: implications for overall aid allocations

By the EBA

The use of development finance to ‘catalyse’ private finance has become a growing trend in development cooperation. From Addis Ababa to Washington DC, international norm-setting forums have stressed the need to catalyse private investment in order to ‘maximise finance for development’ and contribute to the Sustainable Development Goals. In this study, the EBA focus on one specialised form of development finance - Official Development Assistance (ODA) – and its increasing use for ‘catalytic’ purposes.
