Summary
Millions of pounds of international development funds are invested annually in social protection programmes to tackle poverty. Poverty is perpetuated by risk and vulnerability, much of which is gendered. Despite this, little attention has been paid to gender-sensitive policy implementation. Drawing on empirical evidence from poor households and communities in Africa, Asia and Latin America, this book introduces a much-needed gender lens to these debates. With a foreword by Stephen Devereux
