Promoting Pro-Poor Growth

Policy Guidance for Donors

image of Promoting Pro-Poor Growth
For aid donors, the pro-poor growth agenda is not business as usual and more of the same will not be sufficient. Focusing on pro-poor growth and income poverty, Promoting Pro-Poor Growth: Policy Guidance for Donors identifies binding constraints and offers policies and strategies to address them. Policy recommendations aim to help change donor behaviour and pave the way for more effective development co-operation in these areas. This compendium pays special attention to the role of private sector development, agriculture and infrastructure in pro-poor growth – areas that were neglected by many donors during the 1990s but are currently receiving renewed attention in the international development agenda. It also presents a methodology for conducting ex-ante poverty impact assessment, a valuable tool for those whose aim is to maximise the poverty reducing impacts of development interventions.

Why we Need a New Agenda for Agriculture

Throughout history, increases in agricultural sector productivity have contributed greatly to economic growth and the reduction of poverty. The past 30 years have seen global successes in food production lead to an overall decline in world food prices; increased caloric intake; reductions in the percentage of undernourished people; and boosted rates of return to some key investments in agriculture.
