chronic poverty in rural Ethiopia

August 14, 2012

Despite considerable improvements in poverty rates and living conditions for children and their families across Ethiopia, many still live in vulnerable conditions. A newly published IDS Working Paper by Laura Camfield and myself uses quantitative and qualitative data from the Young Lives study to investigate movements in and out of poverty in rural Ethiopia and particularly considers those factors that prevent movements out of poverty or that lock people into poverty.

A news story on this has been published on the IDS website today, which also where the working paper can be found.
