Development Planning and Poverty Reduction
The stated aim of much development assistance is the reduction of poverty. This book examines how development interventions might be more effectively targeted to achieve this aim. Part One provides an overview of planning for poverty reduction, and evidence on the extent and causes of poverty. Part Two examines participatory approaches to development planning. Part Three assesses macro-economic strategies and programmes for poverty reduction. Part Four concludes with a microeconomic analysis of the distribution of benefits from investment projects.
