Linking poverty reduction with green growth through SCP

With poverty reduction being the overall objective of the SWITCH-Asia Programme, and 2015 being the European Year of Development, in this second issue of the SWITCH-Asia Magazine we follow up on a webinar we hosted earlier this year to investigate the link between green growth and poverty reduction.
As many countries in the region initiate national plans and development strategies for green growth, one of the most discussed issues continues to be how green growth addresses the objective of poverty reduction in Asian developing countries and how it can be made pro-poor. Several articles explain how this can be implemented, including through green investment decisions and policy interventions. In addition, this issue illustrates how the projects funded by SWITCH-Asia approach and contribute to poverty reduction in different contexts and in their own unique ways.

The Magazine is also available as ePaper.
