Since 2000, economic growth is increasingly taking place in developing countries. However, growth benefits the poorest people very variably. CPAN’s concern is that it should do so as much as is politically, economically and socially possible. The overarching objective of this project is to provide national policy makers in the 30 developing countries, which account for the great majority of the extremely poor, with the knowledge they need to develop and implement measures that will ensure that the poorest people are included in economic growth.
