2020 economic scenarios: global contexts and implications for DFID.
The purpose of this slide pack is to inform the audience on plausible states of the world in 2020 as we emerge from the global financial crisis, using a range of scenarios, and its implications for developing countries. It is not intended to be exhaustive but, instead, to stimulate a debate on whether DFID is well-placed to achieve its policy objectives over the coming decade. It comprises 3 sections:
- The economic scenarios in 2020 – the fundamentals of the global economy and changing dynamics
- Model how the scenarios will affect growth rates and poverty reduction on PSA countries, including lessons from country workshops in India and Kenya.
- Discussion points and thought starters, from the scenarios/modelling, on DFID implications.
