Handbook on poverty and social analysis

The Asian Development Bank (ADB) supports inclusive growth in the Asia and Pacific region by giving attention to the poverty impact and social dimensions of its operations. The Handbook on Poverty and Social Analysis: A Working Document contributes to this endeavor by providing practical guidance to ADB staff, government officers, project stakeholders, and consultants involved in programming, preparing, and implementing activities for them to effectively address poverty and social dimensions in ADB-financed operations. The handbook provides a road map to specific ADB policies and procedures related to poverty and social analysis, with the end view of achieving inclusive, equitable, and sustainable development outcomes.
