Addressing three broad themes: broad macroeconomic questions relating to poverty reduction efforts in Asia; the importance of anti-poverty interventions targeted to particular sectors or demographic groups; and issues of poverty measurement as applied to selected Asian nations, this work also includes detailed analyses of the poverty situations in a number of countries in Asia and the Pacific. This work represents a major scholarly contribution of the Asian Development Bank on the theme of poverty in the region it serves. The organization adopted poverty reduction as the principal objective of its lending in 1999. The book should be of interest to scholars and students of development economics and Asian studies, policymakers and those working in development organizations and non-governmental organizations.
