5 October 2015
Inequality is a challenge of global prevalence. It is the direct result of a huge disparity in various measures of prosperity. To effectively overcome such a complex problem, time is required and so is coordination within a nation and among nations. Ultimately, it requires patience and participation from all parties.
Inclusive growth is one that is essential and it comprises of economic, sustained, and equitable growths. For a development to be inclusive, it is imperative that all groups of people receive the fair access to opportunities and also contribute to creating opportunities. A sustained development should involve a variety of economic sectors. It is not only exclusive to modern development, but places the same weight on the traditional economic sector.
The road towards achieving inclusive growth is indeed challenging. The job market needs to expand particularly for youths as it promotes sustainability and boosts the economic resilience of a country. It is high time that small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) be promoted and its financial access assisted. Furthermore, a nation’s fiscal policy must enable a fair and inclusive management of public resources. In relation to that, disability rights must be completely acknowledged by the government. Civil Society Organizations (CSOs) play a powerful role in becoming the intermediary between those in need and those who govern. These organizations are strong advocates of human rights and aim to reduce global poverty. Apart from that, the global deficit in infrastructure must be looked into.
