Persistent inequality in societies facing great uncertainties

Various publications of the Economic Commission for Latin America and the Caribbean (ECLAC) place equality at the centre of development, because it provides policies with a foundation in rights and because it is a condition for moving towards a development model focused on the closure of structural gaps and convergence towards greater productivity and economic and environmental sustainability. Against this backdrop, inequality is inefficient and constitutes an obstacle to sustainable development (ECLAC, 2018).
