As Asia becomes a middle-income region, focusing poverty eradication measures on vulnerable indigenous groups with inadequate infrastructure and public services access is critical. Yet, economic research in this area is limited, especially due to scarce data from small and often remote indigenous groups.
To be held at the Asian Society of Agricultural Economists International Conference 2023, this symposium will spotlight the results of an ADBI household survey of indigenous groups in Bhutan, Nepal, and the Philippines and strategies for reducing poverty and improving livelihoods among them.
