LS 3: Increasing Equity

Equity can mean different things in different contexts, and to different people.

  • It sometimes implies an idea of giving people what they deserve, with some kind of reward for effort.
  • It can also sometimes mean protecting the most vulnerable members in society.
  • It can mean directing resources to where they will produce the most ‘good’, however measured.
  • Sometimes it means procedural fairness, or being even-handed.

All these elements of equity are important, and thinking about all of them and how they interact in the context of policy development is the core of the ‘equity’ corner of the Living Standards Framework.
