Making Inclusive Growth work for Scotland


Since 2015 inclusive growth has been central to plans for Scotland’s economic development.

But what does it mean, what does it look like, and – most importantly – how can we ensure that is translated from a promising theory into meaningful change for people and communities?

In a new report from IPPR Scotland key lessons have been identified to aid policymakers and practitioners in Scotland to deliver inclusive growth on the ground.

The report explores examples of inclusive growth in practice, drawing lessons for policymakers and practitioners across Scotland. Lessons were drawn from long-standing initiatives and new local level innovation, as the stories of two of the case studies featured – from the Clyde Gateway project and Midsteeple Quarter in Dumfries – demonstrate.
