Inclusive Growth & Sustainable Livelihoods

Overview

The Inclusive Growth & Sustainable Livelihoods area seeks to address the poverty challenge, providing inputs at both upstream and downstream levels and building on the 2011-2015 programme cycle components such as livelihoods, economic management, environmental sustainability, and statistics. Issues addressed include data gaps and weak institutional capacities to deliver poverty reduction interventions. The first priority will support the capacity of government in creating an enabling environment to address poverty and produce data for associated monitoring and planning. Key interventions will strengthen analytical and institutional capacities to design and implement pro-poor national development strategies and policies in line with the sustainable development goals. Knowledge products on inclusive growth will supplement these efforts.

Our Goals

Equitable economic growth is necessary for sustained poverty reduction. The poor in Zimbabwe should not only benefit equitably from economic growth; they should have the opportunity to actively contribute to its generation. Broad based dialogue leading to home grown solutions therefore falls at the very heart of the recovery process for Zimbabwe. The country office therefore strives to bring together government, civil society, business, labour, donors and development partners towards a common goal guided by the Millennium Development Goals as a development vision. more
