Chronic Poverty Research Centre

The Chronic Poverty Research Centre (CPRC) is an international partnership of universities, research institutes and NGOs which aims to focus attention on chronic poverty, deepening understanding of the causes of chronic poverty, stimulating national and international debate and providing research, analysis and policy guidance that will contribute to its reduction. It was established in 2000 with initial funding from the United Kingdom's Department for International Development (DFID) and is directed from the Overseas Development Institute. Kate Bird, Programme Leader for the Growth and Equity Programme, is Theme Coordinator for the CPRC’s work exploring the intergenerational transmission of poverty.
