Empowerment in Practice: From Analysis to Implementation
World Bank, 2006 - Business & Economics - 371 pages
This publication examines the empowerment approach to development, that is, empowering the poor in developing countries to improve their individual circumstances. Poverty reduction is at the heart of the empowerment issue, and the development of suitable and effective frameworks are required in order to push forward the development prospects of the poor, particularly through improved infrastructures within society, but more importantly by designing policies and intervention approaches which can deliver improvements to individual lives. This publication therefore seeks to help both policy makers and practitioners in establishing an empowerment framework to achieve the goal of reducing poverty. The book contains five cases studies from Brazil, Ethiopia, Honduras, Indonesia and Nepal, detailing efforts to apply the empowerment framework, each working in a different sector.
