World Development Report 2000/2001 : Attacking Poverty

Technical Report

At the start of a new century, poverty remains a global problem of huge proportions. The report argues nevertheless that major reductions in all the dimensions of poverty are indeed possible. Actions are needed in three complementary areas: first, promoting economic opportunities for poor people through equitable growth, better access to markets, and expanded assets; second, facilitating empowerment by making state institutions more responsive to poor people and removing social barriers that exclude women, ethnic and racial groups, and the socially disadvantaged; finally, enhancing security by preventing and managing economywide shocks and providing mechanisms to reduce the sources of vulnerability that poor people face.
