Volume I. Initial Assessment

image of Multi-dimensional Review of Paraguay

Paraguay has achieved strong and resilient growth and made progress across a range of development outcomes since it emerged from a prolonged period of economic and political instability in the early 2000s. In 2014, the country adopted its first National Development Plan, setting course towards an ambitious vision of the country’s future. To maintain the pace of economic growth and achieve more inclusive development Paraguay will need to overcome a number of institutional, economic and social constraints that challenge its development model. This first volume of the Multi-dimensional Review of Paraguay analyses the country’s development performance and presents the main constraints to the country’s development. It examines five broad areas, corresponding to the key areas of the Sustainable Development Goals: prosperity, people’s well-being, planet, peace and institutions, and partnerships and financing.

People: Improving citizen well-being in Paraguay

OECD Development Centre

This chapter focuses on key aspects related to the well-being of citizens in Paraguay. It analyses the country’s performance in terms of poverty and of inequality between people. While poverty has fallen significantly in the past ten years, inequality is persistently high. The chapter goes on to analyse key mechanisms to address inequality in the short and medium terms: employment and labour markets, education and the social protection system.
