Choices for the Poor

Alejandro Grinspun
Price: $ 20

Choices for the Poor presents the results of independent country evaluations commissioned by the United Nations Development Programme in 1999-2000 in order to assess the results and impact achieved by the Poverty Strategies Initiative (PSI), a programme launched in 1996 to support country efforts with the formulation and implementation of national anti-poverty strategies, and to assist in determining the nature and extent of absolute poverty. It discusses the findings from a literature review based on poverty assessments and surveys, national human development reports and poverty reduction strategies prepared in some 50 countries around the world. Choices for the Poor also presents an assessment of the activities sponsored by the programme in 18 countries visited by the evaluation team in early 2000. The book demonstrates that despite comparable objectives, there is wide variation and contrast in the activities supported by the PSI from one country to another.
