JVI is gradually resuming classroom delivery. This course is scheduled to take place at JVI, but may have to be delivered virtually in case safe travel to and in-person training in Vienna will not be possible. The decision to offer virtual instead of onsite training, or a combination of the two (hybrid), will be made within 5 weeks of the course start date.
All participants are expected to follow our COVID-19 Guidelines.
TARGET GROUP | Officials in ministries of finance, economy, trade, labor, the environment, in central banks, and other national agencies charged with evaluating and formulating policies to foster sustained economic growth, job creation, and poverty reduction.
DESCRIPTION | This two-week course aims to equip policymakers and their advisors with a solid understanding of the factors driving inclusive growth to improve the quality of their contribution to policy dialogue and analysis. The course consists of a mix of lectures, case studies, hands-on workshops, and participant presentations. It includes both theoretical and applied policy discussions on growth theories, the growth-poverty-inequality nexus, labor market and skills issues, and fiscal policy for inclusive growth. The course also deals with important issues such as competition and innovation policies as drivers of inclusive growth; financial inclusion; and governance, among others. This course can be considered as equivalent to the course on Inclusive Growth (IG). Therefore, applicants who have previously taken an IG course will not be considered for participation in TPIG course.
