Investing in inclusive and sustainable development

Fostering inclusive and sustainable development will require greater and sustained development-oriented investment. This chapter provides illustrative estimates of the investment and expenditure requirements of 10 countries in the Asia-Pacific region to sustain development- oriented public investments in six key areas: (i) employment for all; (ii) income security for the elderly; (iii) income security for persons with disabilities; (iv) health for all; (v) education for all; and (vi) energy access for all. The analysis finds that most countries can finance such a package without jeopardizing macroeconomic stability, although least developed countries would find it challenging to raise the required resources domestically.
