“Linking 2Ds – Democracy and Development for Peace”
More and more democracy is being hijacked by Corporatocracy, which is economic and political system controlled by corporations or corporate interests. It virtually takes the decision making on
vital issues from democratically elected political leaders in the hands of corporate leaders. The development agenda has fallen off the cart and the gap between the rich and the poor is the
highest since 1990. This totally unsustainable tragic scenario blights too many lives. One billion people go to sleep hungry every night. Two billion live on $2 a day, and suffer from malnutrition
and deadly diseases. Every minute of the day sadly a mother dies in childbirth. And a fifth of the planet people live without access to safe clean drinking water.
Distinguished speakers will explore the interconnecting links between Democracy and Development and how we can return to democratic principles of accountability and transparency. They will also examine how the development agenda can be speeded up for poverty reduction to achieve sustainable peace and development.
