The fourth chronic poverty report: growth

Research report

Written by Andrew Shepherd, Vidya Diwakar, Stephen Gelb

Research report

This report from the Chronic Poverty Advisory Network presents evidence about the types of economic growth that will best allow the poor to escape poverty and stay out of it. 

It analyses policies and programmatic approaches that directly help people out of poverty, and includes discussion on the informal economy, women’s economic empowerment, the inclusion of most marginalised groups, agriculture, the rural non-farm economy and migration.
