OECD and Ford Foundation
Supported by the Ford Foundation, the OECD Inclusive Growth Initiative offers a new approach to the economic challenges we face today and may face tomorrow. The Initiative aims to provide decision makers with a better understanding of the trade-offs and synergies among the policy tools that can make growth not only stronger but also more inclusive. Through a series of consultations with decision makers and stakeholders at the national, regional and local levels, the Initiative reflects the special conditions and implementation challenges of advanced, emerging-market and developing economies.
