Case studies: inclusive growth

Find out how cities can promote inclusive growth using our case study library.

Why improve inclusive growth?

In recent years, economic growth has failed to translate into fewer people living in poverty, driving inclusive growth up the national and local agenda.

In this context, it is important that cities find ways to increase revenues, leverage returns on their investment, encourage investment from other stakeholders, and coordinate the spend of organisations within cities to support better outcomes for residents at all levels of the income distribution.

Use the table below to find out more about how and what cities in the UK and abroad have done to improve inclusive growth. These case studies highlight what the cities did and their self-reported outcomes.
