New CBMS Initiatives

New CBMS Initiative:Monitoring and Mitigating the Impact on Poverty of the Global Financial Economic Crisis

Project Coverage

The proposed project would involve an analysis of the impact of the global financial crisis on poverty. In particular, countries from different regions, particularly those which implement CBMS will be included in the study. Selected areas in each country would serve as poverty observatories or sentinels for monitoring the impact of the global financial crisis on poverty. As such, the following countries will be covered by the project:

Asia: Philippines, Indonesia, Cambodia, Bangladesh, Vietnam, Lao

Africa: Benin, Burkina Faso, Nigeria, Kenya, Ghana, Tanzania, Zambia

Latin America: Peru

Other countries may be added depending on the availability of funds.
