The fourth of ten inclusive growth technical workshops was held on 29th October at Simorgh Hotel in Tehran. 

Its theme was to complete the previous three workshops findings on employment based growth and it met the objective by consolidating all the indicators and information collected on four pillars of social, economic, natural and governance development – based on labour market indicators and undertaken by four working groups (on macro, meso, District and community level programming).

In line with UNDP’s mandate in the Islamic Republic of Iran of Inclusive Growth and Poverty Reduction, a series of workshops have been organized by the Inclusive Growth and Development Cluster to derive useful, feasible, and applicable strategies, solutions and programmes for inclusive growth planning in Iran.
