Event summary: Three-day conference on reducing inequality, 5-7 October 2022, in Bogotá, Colombia.

United Nations University World Institute for Development Economics Research (UNU-WIDER) in partnership with Universidad de los Andes (UNIANDES) convenes a three-day conference on reducing inequality, held in Bogotá, Colombia.

About the conference

As new research uncovers the many negative impacts that high inequality can have, a consensus is emerging that achieving SDG 10: Reduced Inequalities is a global goal of critical importance.

This WIDER Development Conference, the second of 2022, provides a forum to discuss innovative, theoretical, and empirical research on inequality, and its policy take-aways. It takes stock of where we are, evaluates progress made, and identifies what challenges lay ahead.

The programme addresses major themes in inequality across keynote lectures, parallel sessions, and a policy dialogue event.
