Short summary:
The inequality diagnostics are tools that profile multidimensional inequalities in a given country over time and at various geographical levels, enabling a better understanding of the underlying dynamics. This also allows stakeholders to easily identify priorities for action and to develop policies better suited to tackle these inequalities. A first series of inequality diagnostic has been produced for Colombia, Ghana, Indonesia, Kenya, Mali, and South Africa. This side-event will explore opportunities for a new generation of diagnostics that considers two of the most pressing challenges: climate change and the transformation of labour markets.
