UNDESA-DSPD will launch the publication of Inequality Matters, the latest edition of its flagship Report on the World Social Situation, at an event during the Commission for Social Development on Friday, 14 February, from 1:15 pm to 2:45 pm in S-1523 (Secretariat building, 15th floor). The report examines the economic and social impacts of growing inequality and presents policy approaches to address inequality and its consequences.
The report highlights two key messages:
(1) inequality matters: development will not be sustained or sustainable if Governments and the international community ignore growing inequalities;
(2) policy matters: high levels of inequality can be curbed.
