Economic Growth

Though growth is necessary for development, not all growth benefits the poor. CGD’s work on this topic includes exploring strategies to ensure that economic growth is “pro-poor” and that donor organizations and government agencies encourage broad-based, pro-poor growth.

Other work contributes to and supplements research on economic growth, including research on encouraging innovative private investment, expanding access to financial services, and reducing global inequality.
