Beschreibung:

The previous century was marked by India s great transformation from a colonial agrarian economy to a modern, vibrating, knowledge-based economy within the framework of a liberal and secular democracy. A high annual GDP growth rate of over 8 per cent is now being achieved on a consistent basis. The rapid economic growth has, however, brought only a marginal decline in rural and urban poverty as nearly 250 million people, constituting about 25 per cent of the country s total population, still remain below the poverty line. The data relating to the dimensions of poverty is startling a whopping 350 million people are illiterate, 150 million have no access to safe drinking water, 750 million lack clean sanitation facilities and are prone to diseases resulting therefrom, and 50 per cent of the children eat below acceptable nutritional levels. Average life expectancy at birth has no doubt risen to 63 years, but infant mortality rate (IMR) and maternal mortality rate (MMR) are still at unacceptably high levels 57 per 1000, and 3 per 1000 live births respectively. In terms of Human Development Index (HDI), India is ranked 126th among the 177 listed countries. Even the mentioned statistics do not fully capture the sheer destitution and misery our marginalized sections of population are subjected to. The poverty that they endure robs them of their human dignity and makes a mockery of our claims to social justice and equity. Growth, when unevenly spread, dwarfs overall prosperity. Hence, bridging the income divide is the biggest challenge for India. The Government on its part has launched several poverty alleviation programmes but they have not brought the desired result. The Approach Paper to the Eleventh Five-Year Plan has laid emphasis on strategies that accelerate growth and make it broadbased. The present anthology is comprised of well-researched articles by erudite scholars who have deeply analysed the problem of persisting poverty in India. Various factors responsible for such a situation have been studied and ways and means suggested to considerably reduce if not eradicate poverty. The book will serve as a valuable reference source for students and teachers of Economics and researchers on this subject. It will also be useful for the policymakers, planners, parliamentarians, government agencies and NGOs. Common readers concerned with the overall development of the nation will find it highly informative. Printed Pages: 216. Buchnummer des Verkäufers 37418

Buchbeschreibung "Rural poverty is a much studied topic. However, in most of the studies, poverty is measured on the basis of an unidimensional measure of nutritional inadequacy. This study deviates from the other studies in capturing several other aspects of poverty like income insufficiency, resource deprivation and low quality of life. In all seventeen indicators are used. Poverty profiles of 64 regions are prepared on the basis of these indicators. An attempt is then made to understand these poverty situations with the help of structural (agrarian), geophysical and policy variables. Though multivariate regression method is also used as a tool of analysis, main stress is on preparing a typology of poverty and its correlates using cluster analysis. The study makes it possible to find answers to questions like why different poverty situations emerge from similar policy mixes and why these have not happened as desired. As such, it is not merely and exercise in numbers which soon becomes outdated but is an exercise in understand the processes which generate poverty in all its dimensions. Artikel-Nr.

Buchbeschreibung "This book, based on the study of 33 projects in India aided by six European donors ? The European Commission, Denmark, Germany, Netherlands, Sweden and United Kingdom ? seeks to examine the aid programmes from the perspective of poverty reduction. It conceptualises poverty alleviation as a multi-dimensional phenomenon which involves changes in livelihoods, resources, knowledge and rights, as also it analyses the manner and means through which the donors? aid programmes are organised and implemented.
