Understanding Inclusive Development: Video interview presents key issues for Inclusive Growth dialogue
Interview with Prof. Nanak Kakwani, former IPC-IG’s Director, visiting researcher at Ipea and Professor at the University of New South Wales in Sydney. Professor Kakawani presented at IPC-IG Seminar his research findings in the areas of pro-poor growth, poverty and inequality, with focus on BRICS countries. The Seminar was chaired by Marcelo Neri, President of Ipea, Minister of the Secretariat of Strategic Affairs (SAE) and co-author of Prof. Kakwani’s upcoming working paper. Jorge Chediek, Interim Director of IPC-IG, UN Resident Coordinator and UNDP Resident Representative in Brazil also participated in the opening session.
Professor Kakawani brought his new concept of inclusive development, which goes beyond poverty reduction. He acknowledges that everyone must be able to participate, create opportunities and share the benefits of development, as well as participate in the decision-making. He also introduced the Social Opportunity Function, which aims to provide a tool for policy makers to promote inclusive development. This research was developed during his time as a visiting researcher at Ipea, and the findings will be published soon by IPC-IG.
