Description

This book will be invaluable to teachers, students, policy makers and others who need to understand the multi-faceted nature of poverty in India.

This volume includes edited versions of the papers commissioned by United Nations Development Program (UNDP), for a South Asia Poverty Monitor. Special care has been taken to make the information and analysis accessible to general reader. The broad conclusion which has emerged is that more public action is needed to counter the high prevalence of human poverty. Therefore, measures to reduce income-poverty, including higher rates of economic growth, are not sufficient.
