Summary and Info
Broad-based growth is critical for accelerating proverty reduction. But income inequality also affects thee pace at which growth translates into gains for the poor. Despite the attention researchers have give to the relative roles of growth and inqequality in rreducing poverty, little is known about how the microunderpinnings of growth strategies affect poor households' ability to participate in and profit from growth.Delivering on the Promise of Pro-Poor Growth contributes to the debate on how to accerlerate poverty reduction by providing insights from eight countries that have been relatively successful in delivering pro-poor growth: Bangladesh, Brazil, Ghana, India, Indonesia, Tunisia, Uganda, and Vietnam. It integrates growth analytics with the microanalysis of houosehold data to determine how country policies and conditions interact to reduce poverty and to spread the benefits of growth across different income groups. This title is a useful resource for policy makers, donor agencies, academics, think tanks, and government officials seeking a practical framework to improve country level diagnostics of growth-poverty linkages.
