This book provides an analysis of poverty reduction policies from a chronic poverty perspective. Using quantitative and qualitative data, the volume offers an account of the major causes and consequences of chronic poverty. Also explored are: the phenomenon of chronic poverty among rural casual labourers; the effect of involuntary displacement and relocation; the opportunities afforded by technology for empowerment; and possible ways and means to strengthen existing safety nets for the vulnerable.
