CPAN works to keep chronically poor people on the development agenda. We do this through research and analysis into the causes of chronic poverty and routes out of it. We produce evidence based resources and advice for national and international policy makers on how policies can effectively reach and work to improve the lives of the very poorest people. You can read more about the ways that we do this on the Our Approach page.

Reducing chronic poverty requires interventions across a range of sectors and not just a focus on poverty reduction policies alone. Read more about the main areas that we currently work on by clicking on the pictures below. Please contact us if you'd like to know more about our work in any of these sectors or if you would like to discuss working on another theme with us.
