The analysis of macro-poverty linkages has emerged as an important area of national and international policy-making. Considerable progress has been made during the past few years in developing macro tools for poverty analysis, and in linking micro analysis of poverty through household surveys to macroeconomic policy analysis. Macro-micro poverty analysis is an exciting new topic taken up in this theme issue of the ODI review together with the analysis of macro poverty linkages.

This lunch time seminar marks the launch of a theme issue of Development Policy Reviewon 'Analysing Macro Poverty Linkages' (Guest Editors: Marc J. Cohen (International Food Policy Research Institute), Bernhard G. Gunter (African Development Bank) and Hans Lofgren (World Bank).

Based on an international workshop, co-organized by the European Network on Debt and Development (EURODAD), the International Food Policy Research Institute (IFPRI), the New Rules for Global Finance Coalition and Oxfam International, this Theme Issue provides useful insights into methodological issues as well as policy implications.
