The new World Bank Group report “Inclusion Matters: The Foundation for Shared Prosperity” is one of the most comprehensive reviews of social inclusion available. It shows that excluded groups exist in all countries, but change toward social inclusion is possible and attainable with concerted policy efforts. It puts boundaries around an abstract concept and provides a framework for a diverse audience engaged in policy action. 

This event marks the first launch of the report in Africa, and the first in a World Bank client country. It will be chaired by Mr. Philippe Dongier, World Bank Country Director for Tanzania, Uganda and Burundi and Mr. Ahmadou Moustapha Ndiaye, Country Manager World Bank Uganda Country Office.
