Several projects funded by the iiG programme shed light on what might be called ‘the foundations of growth’ – health, education and legal services. Although health and education are in themselves important avenues for investment in human capital, what these three broad forms of public service have in common is that they are arguably part of what creates the fertile environment required for investment to lead to growth. This document outlines key findings on growth, and lists sources of information for the topics discussed.
