The IGC India Research Conference: Evidence for inclusive growth presents and discusses frontier research from IGC and LSE economists examining key components of inclusive economic growth in India. Specifically, the conference is organised by sessions on the following themes:

  • Should electricity be a right?
  • Social protection and the delivery of food assistance
  • Pollution, climate change, and growth in India
  • Women and the labour market

The conference showcases IGC’s collaborative model of academics working hand-in-hand with policymakers to address key growth challenges, and IGC’s focus on using this evidence base to inform policy in India, building up local institutional capacity in the process. Research presented at the conference represent a mix of projects funded by DFID and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.
