The right reasons to fund Sport for Development and Peace Initiatives (SDP). Reason 17: who can we count on?
The Pyeongchang Games are over. But the controversy over the International Olympic Committee, which would be the UN's only interlocutor on sport for sustainable development, has not disappeared. We know it well! The IOC has more to whip than to speak for the people of the world, especially those who are poor and vulnerable. On this issue, UNESCO is already doing a lot. Kazan's plan should yield interesting results. But what to expect from public funding by the states? We have often repeated it. Northern states are struggling to increase their development aid because of debt reduction policies. Southern states are struggling to plan an elementary sustainable development policy. As the President of Ghana recently said, health and education in Africa cannot continue to depend on European taxpayers. As the Addis Ababa conference has shown, $ 90 to $ 120 trillion worth of sustainable development funding will necessarily come mainly from the private sector. So let's support the SDP concrete initiatives by involving the private sector. How to do? See next.
