Practical Mechanisms for Poverty Reduction

This study on Practical Mechanisms for Poverty Reduction was commissioned by the Commonwealth Secretariat with the view: (i) to identify major examples of practical mechanisms of poverty reduction, review the conditions associated with their success and assess their potential replicability; (ii) to identify donor agencies which finance these practical mechanisms and examine the conditions that apply to such assistance; and (iii) to review the role the Secretariat could play in assisting member countries to promote poverty reduction.
