PiA 2020: Empowering Inclusive Growth
Fifty-three out of 74 countries where the Partnership is active presented requests to work on inclusive growth, with an important share of demands oriented toward improving social inclusion and reducing inequalities. This trend reflects a growing recognition of the links between climate change and social inclusion. It also mirrors increased efforts to accelerate mainstreaming of climate into different policy areas. Countries are expanding their “whole-of-government” approaches through broadening the involvement of sectoral ministries in climate action. This includes integrating gender and youth considerations and stakeholders into NDC planning and implementation (see Gender paragraph below).
