Markets, business and supply chains

Expanding access to economic opportunity is essential for improving lives and livelihoods. Markets and the private sector play a leading role in delivering economic growth and are increasingly expected to do so in a way that is inclusive and sustainable.

There are a number of ways businesses, foundations, governments and communities work to deliver inclusive growth across all levels of society. These include developing inclusive market systems, supporting quality jobs and livelihoods in responsible global supply chains, and working across sectors to accelerate systemic change. Specific areas we cover include women’s economic empowerment, financial inclusion, and sustainable cities and infrastructure.

We work with companies, corporate foundations, investors and donors to accelerate progress in these areas and more. We develop impact strategies, identify baseline needs and evaluate what works and why to help expand economic opportunity and improve lives.
