Review

"This is a comprehensive collection of recent research around the topic of poverty reduction, broadly defined, in Indonesia. Poverty is multi-dimensional, and so is this volume, with chapters on just about everything that goes into successful poverty reduction, from growth and pricing policy to employment and migration, to health, education and sanitation, and to social safety nets ... an excellent starting point for anyone working on poverty reduction, broadly conceived, in Indonesia or the region" (Bulletin of Indonesian Economic Studies).

About the Publication

Understanding the nexus between employment, living standards and poverty is a major challenge in Indonesia. Trends in poverty are heavily dependent on labour market opportunities and social spending in education and health. The question is how to create opportunities and spend money wisely - a subject of intense debate in Indonesia. The government has brought a renewed focus to poverty reduction since the end of the Asian financial crisis, especially under the current president, Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono. This book shows how Indonesia is travelling with regard to employment, social policy and poverty. It identifies promising new directions for strategies to alleviate poverty, some of which are already showing results.
