Using Political Analysis to Make Development Policy More Effective in Delivering Inclusive Growth and Poverty Reduction

Impact: Political impacts, Societal impacts


University of Manchester research has directly influenced the thinking, strategies and programming of leading international development actors. Our work on the politics of development has ensured that key development agencies now have a more specific and research-based understanding of what drives the commitment of political elites and of governments’ capacity to deliver development. This work catalysed DFID and other actors to launch a new wave of programmes that are worth over GBP270,000,000 and reach over 1,000,000 people. These interventions are promoting inclusive economic growth and poverty reduction, helping to create thousands of jobs, improved health and education systems and reduce poverty in developing countries.
