Poverty reduction



To help increase its impact on changing donor behaviour, a major component of POVNET’s current work programme is the pro active dissemination of its policy guidance for donors on promoting pro poor growth. This is being pursued in a number of ways including:

Since June 2007, workshops have been held in:
