The Center for Public Policy Alternatives (CPPA) cordially invites you to a policy roundtable themed “Inequality of Opportunities and Outcomes”.
CPPA, supported by The Ford Foundation, is conducting studies to assess the impact of income and wealth inequality or disparities in Nigeria as an aspect of its ongoing 21st Century Challenges Project.
With a Gini coefficient of 0.43 in 2016, worsening income and wealth inequality in Nigeria has received the attention of policymakers and think-tanks alike. The problem requires knowledge-sharing through dialogue with key stakeholders to illuminate the factors and circumstances creating and sustaining inequality. The discussions will also examine ways to enhance state capacity to close the income gap and deliver basic services to the most vulnerable groups.
The schedule is as follows:
Date: Thursday 23rd March, 2017
Time: 10:00am – 1:00pm
Venue: CPPA Conference Room, 3rd Floor West Wing, City Hall
Catholic Mission Street, Lagos Island, Lagos
