The Governance of Inclusive Growth

image of The Governance of Inclusive Growth

Public governance can make a broad-based contribution to sound, sustainable and inclusive growth. Aligning public governance tools and processes with the broader objectives of policy making for inclusive growth can help governments deal with the complexities that go hand-in-hand with reconciling growth and inclusiveness. These complexities include setting out a vision, ensuring that policies complement each other and that different parts of government work together towards common goals, and engaging stakeholders to improve effectiveness, delivery and inclusion. After describing the OECD approach to inclusive growth, the report discusses which public governance principles, tools and arrangements can be used, and when, to enable a whole-of-government shift towards inclusive growth.

Foreword and acknowledgements

Inclusive growth, or economic growth that benefits all by providing greater opportunity and sharing the fruits of prosperity evenly across society, is the subject of many policy and political discussions today. Recently, efforts have been made to broaden the discussion of growth and inequality beyond income to take into account a variety of outcomes across dimensions that affect people’s well-being, such as jobs and health. To complement these policy discussions, it is necessary to look at the public governance of inclusive growth, with emphasis on the conditions that support not only the design, but also the implementation and evaluation, of policies for inclusive growth.
