Delivering on the Promise of Pro-Poor
Growth contributes to the debate on how to accelerate
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 household 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.
