Hi there, sharing the below event taking place this week, Thursday, 12 November to discuss a fresh approach to thinking about inequality and exclusion in urban settings.
Join the World Bank’s Social Sustainability and Inclusion Global Practice and the Pathfinders for a discussion on the Mind the Gap (MTG) Index, a new tool for measuring and addressing spatial disparities in urban centers.
The webinar will feature a presentation of the findings from the MTG pilot application in Addis Ababa, Jakarta, and Mexico, and a discussion on the importance of granular and up-to-date data, as well as the accumulating nature of disadvantage in poor neighborhoods. The results are relevant to efforts to improve the outcomes of urbanization, so that cities can realize their potential to expand opportunities for all.
The Mind-the-Gap Index was developed for the Pathfinders Grand Challenge on Inequality and Exclusion, in partnership with the World Bank Group.
