Growth, Poverty, and Inequality: Confronting
the Challenges of a Better Life for All in Africa
The Institute for African Development, in collaboration with the African Economic Research Consortium, recently held a symposium on the theme Growth, Poverty, and Inequality. We examined issues such as identification of strategies for ensuring that growth translates into improved livelihoods for people, policies that empower the poor and landless, and educational policies that build the capacity of youth and other disadvantaged communities.
