Description: Based on the Inclusive Economy Indicators developed in 2016, this project gathered empirical data in the context of India. The Indian case study was part of a 3 country study (including South Africa and Colombia) within previously developed measurement framework. This study engaged with a range of experts on inclusive economies in each context, and from these conversations developed advances in conceptual, measurement and process dimensions of creating more inclusive economies. The overall objective of the project was to provide country-specific insights into processes of inclusive growth.
