“Measuring Inclusive Growth: From Theory to Application in North Africa”
African Development Bank (INSME Member) has recently published “Measuring Inclusive Growth: From Theory to Application in North Africa” a report drafted with the purpose of creating a new evaluation method to measure the inclusiveness of growth. The index includes ten dimensions covering relevant aspects of inclusive growth among which labor force and employment, health and demography, education, social cohesion, gender.
According to the report, with the only exception of Tunisia, North African countries underperformed internationally positioning in the lower median of rankings for all countries. One of the key challenges to achieve an inclusive growth in the region identified by the report is related to labor market issues, in particular to job creation.
The report is intended as a starting point to encourage methodological debate and stimulate the adoption of new approaches to overcome the challenges faced by North African countries and achieve a sustainable and inclusive growth in the region.
