There is general concern that the recent improvements in Cameroon’s economy, in terms of GDP growth ( the macro level), have not translated into the improvement of the population’s welfare, i.e. at the micro level. Such stagnation would be the result of the low productivity of labour, and underemployment of the country’s active population. In this study, a team of PEP Cameroonian researchers aimed to establish how the productivity of the (non-agricultural) informal sector may affect or contribute to improve welfare in Cameroon, while identifying the main determining factors of the sector’s productivity. Find out more about the researchers' findings and related policy recommendations through the following PEP publications:
