The overall objectives of this S-RDTA are to rigorously analyze driving forces underlying poverty reduction in the region and to quantify contributions of these factors. Such analyses are scarce in the development literature despite various discussions and qualitative assessments. This S-RDTA will conduct country-specific case studies to explore relevant policy impacts.
More specifically, this S-RDTA intends to address the following questions: What are the major contributors to poverty reduction in the region (e.g., growth versus income distribution)? Which sector is more important as far as its growth and distribution of sector output are concerned? Why did some areas/countries perform better than others? How effective are relevant government policies in promoting poverty reduction and reducing vulnerability to poverty? How can good practices and examples in one country be replicated in other countries?
