GDN 14th Annual Conference –
“Inequality, Social Protection and Inclusive Growth”

The GDN 14th Annual Global Development Conference on Inequality, Social Protection and Inclusive Growth will be held on June 19-21, 2013 at the Asian Development Bank Headquarters in Manila, Philippines. In partnership with Asian Development Bank (ADB), East Asian Development Network (EADN) and Philippine Institute for Development Studies (PIDS), the conference is expected to host 400 participants from all over the world including the East Asia region and the Philippines.

In the aftermath of the global financial crisis, there is now a growing consciousness of the benefits of social protection in fighting poverty and inequality, and empowering people to adjust and seize opportunities to deal with unemployment and increase productivity. The main focus of the conference is thus to promote the importance of social policies and social protection systems that address and reduce inequality and social exclusion for long-term sustainable and inclusive growth.

Topics to be covered at the conference include (but are not limited to):

  • Global perspectives on inequality
  • Gender, inequality and social protection
  • Regional perspectives on inequality and inclusive growth
  • Mechanisms to promote social protection for inclusive growth
  • Key challenges for social protection policies
