Book Description

A New Perspective on Poverty in the Caribbean reflects on the current approaches to the challenge of poverty reduction in the context of the findings of the qualitative and quantitative analyses and identifies some critical ingredients for successful poverty-reduction interventions around which a regional consensus could be built. The role and nature of participation, the policy environment for social services delivery are considered along with specific poverty reduction interventions and the general approach to poverty reduction in the Caribbean.
