A new video introduces the work of the IGC in Bihar, northern India. Bihar is one of India’s poorest states, with half of its 100 million people living on less than a dollar a day. The five-minute video includes comments from Deputy Chief Minister Sushil Kumar Modi; IGC country co-director Shaibal Gupta; World Bank economist Vijayendra Rao; and IGC lead economist and LSE professor Maitreesh Ghatak. It was shot on location at the recent IGC-Bihar Growth Conference.
