The Private Sector s Role in Poverty Reduction in Asia Book Review:

The private sector has an important role in poverty reduction in Asia. The Private Sector’s Role in Poverty Reduction in Asia argues that the best way to create sustainable projects is to create win-win situations where both private companies and individuals working their way out of poverty can benefit. The book provides a practical guide for managers and individuals working in the private sector in the least developed areas of Asia to help make a difference to the lives of others. The book’s opening chapter considers the private sector’s role in poverty reduction in Asia and following chapters discuss the variable nature of development, developing economy environments in Asia and business practices and strategies in these economies. A number of Asian economies are considered in turn, including: China; Vietnam; Thailand; Cambodia; Laos PDR; Southeast Asian countries; South Asian countries; Central Asian countries; and the Himalayas. The final chapter looks at creating sustainable win-win situations. Focuses on practical advice for acting managers Uses primary research carried out in developing economies, with interviews and ideas from local managers and business owners Covers a variety of academic theories, empirical evidence and personal experiences of individuals working in the region

Examining the Private Sector s Role in Wealth Creation and Poverty Reduction Book Review:

The private sector is a vital factor in creating the wealth and economic growth needed to reduce poverty in a significant and sustainable manner. However, there are many obstacles preventing private sector firms from engaging in business where poverty is widespread. Examining the Private Sector’s Role in Wealth Creation and Poverty Reduction explores poverty alleviation in developing economies through the creation of livelihood options developed by private sector activities. Examining relevant topics such as corporate social responsibility (CSR) frameworks, multinational enterprises, and responsible tourism, this publication is an ideal resource for private sector firms, researchers, academicians, professionals, and students interested in wealth creation in areas of extreme poverty.

Poverty Reduction Policies and Practices in Developing Asia Book Review:

This book looks at the major policy challenges facing developing Asia and how the region sustains rapid economic growth to reduce multidimensional poverty through socially inclusive and environmentally sustainable measures. Asia is facing many challenges arising from population growth, rapid urbanization, provision of services, climate change and the need to redress declining growth after the global financial crisis. This book examines poverty and related issues and aims to advance the development of new tools and measurement of multidimensional poverty and poverty reduction policy analysis. The book covers a wide range of issues, including determinants and causes of poverty and its changes; consequences and impacts of poverty on human capital formation, growth and consumption; assessment of poverty strategies and policies; the role of government, NGOs and other institutions in poverty reduction; rural-urban migration and poverty; vulnerability to poverty; breakdown of poverty into chronic and transitory components; and a comparative study on poverty issues in Asia and other regions. The book will appeal to all those interested in economic development, resources, policies and economic welfare and growth.
