A Poverty and Social Impact Analysis (PSIA) learning event
Cape Town, South Africa
July 21-24, 2015
Addressing global development issues often requires effective policy reforms. Some of these reforms are justified from a fiscal and macroeconomic perspective, but may have unintended impacts on different groups of the population, particularly the poor and most vulnerable. Reforms have costs and benefits which are usually distributed unequally across different groups of the population.
Poverty and Social Impact Analysis (PSIA) is a versatile approach to assess the distributional and social impacts of policy reforms on different groups, with emphasis on the poor and vulnerable. This analysis offers insights into different policy options, supports the decision making process, can help mitigate potential negative impacts and identify pathways to more inclusive reforms.
This learning event will bring together policymakers, academics, civil society representatives, and development partners to discuss innovations in the use of evidence to inform policy design in Africa. The event will feature:
