Trade Policy and Poverty Linkages in Kenya

Research reports

Written by Kate Bird

This paper aims to balance the presentation of empirical evidence from Kenya with a review of international experience. It attempts to explore how trade policy change affects poor people and the types of complementary measures necessary if trade policy change is to stimulate a positive supply response, increase trade flows, generate broadly based and labour intensive growth and benefit consumers.
