2 Interventions to promote livelihoods
This section focuses on the different kinds of intervention and initiatives that aim to address various dimensions of poverty and to enhance livelihoods. Chapter 11 from International Development in a Changing World by Papaioannou and Butcher, which is part of the TD223 International development: making sense of a changing world, sets up a framework for you to evaluate six case studies of intervention in terms of the social relations involved, and the role of power and agency. The online activities in turn enable you to go into a bit more depth on particular issues involved in micro-credit and in recent proposals for cash transfers to poor people.
