“South Asian governments must take urgent actions to beat growing inequalities in the region”- says SAAPE report: Growing Inequality in South Asia
03 September 2019, Kathmandu "South Asian countries have failed to make the use of economic growth in the region to improve the lives of the poor and marginalized people of the community, mostly women, girls and marginalised communities and reduce inequalities the region is facing. Extreme inequalities are destroying the region putting a threat to democracy, culture and security, and most seriously posing a threat to women’s human rights, says the report “Growing Inequality in South Asia” launched by South Asia Alliance for Poverty Eradication (SAAPE) today on its official website /span>www.saape.org>. The report reveals the seriousness of growing inequality in the region as a result of government policies and programmes that benefit a handful of the rich and leave behind a large number of people who are denied access to basic human rights and needs. It analyses the causes and drivers of inequality and demonstrates concrete evidence of widening inequalities in the region. The report is available for download at: https://lnkd.in/f9Ts97m
Country reports generated by CSOs have been brought together to file a south Asia level report. Valuable resource for all those interested in South Asia.
