Title

Poverty and livelihoods: whose reality counts?

Author

Chambers, Robert

Description

Critiquing anti-poverty rhetoric and the emphasis on employment, Chambers explains how the realities of poor people are local, complex, diverse and dynamic. Issues such as isolation, health, powerless, etc. must be examined. Sustainable livelihoods are examined, with the emphasis being placed on putting people before things.
