Growth and Employment

Project name/title
ReCom – Growth and Employment
Aid can help countries generate more growth and employment, but what are the channels that work best for growth? How can aid help improve the livelihoods of the poorest people, improve the opportunities for women in the labour market, and provide more employment for young people?


Foreign aid has always had a role in addressing environmental issues and in helping with natural disasters. In this animation we look at how aid works in relation to climate change. The film is part of a series produced by UNU-WIDER on the project 'ReCom--Research and Communication on Foreign Aid'. It can for instance be used when teaching students about environmental challenges.
