SIG Working Paper Series
Increasingly, the concept of "inclusive growth," where the benefits of economic growth are enjoyed across societies, is being recognized and advanced by many countries. Growth is less likely to be sustainable with high and/or growing inequalities, and inequality can hamper growth.
IDRC’s Supporting Inclusive Growth (SIG) program supports research that advances inclusive growth and enhances productive opportunities for all, in particular for poor women and youth. The third title in the series of SIG working papers, “Inclusive Growth: More than Safety Nets?,”  is now available.
In the paper, co-authors Arjan de Haan, SIG program leader, and Sukhadeo Thorat of Jawaharlal Nehru University, set out the definition of the concept, trace its emergence on the international agenda, and propose research priorities.
