EU-AFD webinar: "Exploring the dynamics of micro-level consumption inequality in Ghana"

About this event

The Research Facility on Inequalities, a partnership between the European Commission (DevCo) and AFD, has launched its series of weekly webinars. After three years of research aiming to understand and address inequalities in developing and emerging countries, it is now time to share some of the results.

Join us for the sixth session of the EU-AFD Research Facility on Inequalities’ webinars to be held on Monday, June 29th at 5.00 pm CEST, dedicated to the project The dynamics and interactions of income inequality and inequality of opportunity.

Nkechi Owoo, Researcher at Department of Economics, University of Ghana and ACEIR affiliate, will present the research paper “Exploring the dynamics of micro- level consumption inequality in Ghana”.

Despite the country’s impressive growth record, inequality remains a pressing concern in Ghana. It has been emphasized that potential explanations for the non-trickledown of economic growth may be related to the nature and causes of economic inequality; it is therefore imperative to analyse the economic determinants of inequality at disaggregated levels. To this end, this research illuminates the various forces that explain household expenditure deviations from the population mean in Ghana- a proxy for micro-level economic inequality. 

You can also find the schedule of upcoming webinars on the Research Facility on Inequalities’ website in the “Events” section.

For those of you who were not able to join us for the previous sessions, you will also find the replays on our webpage.

The EU-AFD Research Facility on Inequalities is a partnership aiming to enhance the knowledge and understanding of socioeconomic inequalities. This program, funded by the European Commission and implemented by AFD, has launched 22 research projects for which the results will be available in 2020.
