This series seeks to progress thinking and debate on the spatial dimensions of development, with a specific focus on poverty. The series is interdisciplinary in nature, including papers by geographers, economists, anthropologists and political scientists. It captures evidence from a range of low-income countries. The series is policy-focused: as well providing insights into the nature of spatial poverty in low-income countries, our hope is that the series provides tractable and realistic policy advice on how policies and programmes can think through and address poverty resulting from spatial disadvantage.
