Measuring Poverty in Nigeria
Sofo C. A. Ali-Akpajiak Toni Pyke
Price: $ 19.95

There is no shortage of written materials about the nature and prevalence of poverty in Nigeria, but they are not all easily accessible by civil-society groups. This report was commissioned by Oxfam GB to support the development of its new programme of poverty-alleviation work in a society that is rich in human and natural resources, and yet suffers major social and economic problems. The report summarizes recent evidence from a wide range of sources, including research institutions, civil-society organizations, bilateral and multilateral institutions, government organizations and individuals. It collates their findings in one comprehensive document, which surveys aspects of poverty in Nigeria from social, political, economic, environmental and technological perspectives. This book should be useful to development organizations and other representatives of civil society who are engaged in promoting good governance in Nigeria. It explores the underlying causes of poverty, both urban and rural; presents a wide range of indices; and assesses the prospects for inclusive and equitable development under Nigeria's new democratic dispensation.
