Pro-poorest economic growth: Employment and social assistance contributions to the eradication of extreme poverty

This policy brief highlights the importance of making poverty eradication an overarching goal of the post 2015 process, with other goal areas such as employment, education and social assistance all making a contribution towards it, rather than focusing on poverty eradication policies alone. It emphasises the need for pro-poor employment and social assistance policies to sustain poverty escapes. 

Authors: Andrew Shepherd, Lucy Scott and Chiara Mariotti.

The policy brief draws on research and analysis from the Chronic Poverty Report 2014-15.
