Description - The New Poverty Strategies by Anne Booth
The contributors to this collection examine the progress and impact of the "new poverty strategies" which have governed the policies of development agencies since the 1990s. While in some areas progress has been impressive, in others it has been hampered by persisting inequalities, civil conflict, institutional gaps and turbulence in the international financial system. In light of this, "The New Poverty Strategies" proposes a range of new policies and donor initiatives designed to achieve greater success in poverty reduction in the new century.
