Synopsis

At the start of each decade, the World Development Report focuses on poverty reduction. "The World Development Report", now in its twenty-third edition, proposes an empowerment-security-opportunity framework of action to reduce poverty in the first decades of the twenty-first century. It views poverty as a multi-dimensional phenomenon arising out of complex interactions between assets, markets, and institutions. This Report shows how the experience of poverty reduction in the last fifteen years has been remarkably diverse and how this experience has provided useful lessons as well as warnings against simplistic universal policies and interventions. It shows how current global trends present extraordinary opportunities for poverty reduction but also cause extraordinary risks, including growing inequality, marginalization, and social explosions. "The World Development Report 2000/2001" explores the challenge of managing these risks in order to make the most of the opportunities for poverty reduction.
