Operationalizing Pro-Poor Growth - Case Study of Romania


Operationalization of Economic Growth for Poor Countries: Romania Case Study is part of a World Bank project which sets out to determine the optimal conditions under which growth strategies affect the reduction of poverty. CASE experts directed by Irena Topińska assessed the policies of the Romanian government towards the poorest social groups and examined the extent to which these groups benefited from growing GDP. The results of the research, and also recommendations to the government of Romania, were presented at conferences held in February 2004 in London and in October 2004 in Frankfurt. The Romanian study, along with several other analogous reports covering Bolivia, Bangladesh, Brazil, Burkina Faso, El Salvador, Ghana, India, Indonesia, Senegal, Tunisia, Uganda, Vietnam and Zambia) were planned to form a synthetic World Bank report - for more information please visit global project site.
