DESCRIPTION

Sustainably ending poverty means ensuring that households that have escaped poverty do not descend back into poverty over time. It also means ensuring that non-poor households do not fall into poverty in the first place. In three case studies of rural populations in Ethiopia, Uganda, and Bangladesh, the Overseas Development Institute (ODI), through the Leveraging Economic Opportunities (LEO) project, has investigated these poverty dynamics. This work highlights the risk and resilience factors that influence how and when poverty escapes are sustainable and when they are not.

Please join us for this joint Microlinks and Agrilinks Special Event, supported by the USAID Center for Resilience, Bureau for Food Security, and Bureau for Economic Growth, Education and Environment. Our panelists will present and discuss the findings from these case studies, as well as the policy and programmatic implications of building resilience to ensure poverty escapes are sustainable over time.

Attending in person? Join us before the event at 8:30 for breakfast and networking!
