Impoverishment and Sustainable Development: A Systems Approach

By Gilberto Gallopin on January 2, 2002
Dr. Gallopin's research, carried out while he was a Senior Fellow of IISD, presents a systemic approach which makes the connections among different social and ecological dimensions. The approach described here will be useful to researchers and practitioners seeking a broad understanding of the comples linkages among impoverishment and sustainable development processes. This systemic view is essential for understanding how poverty alleviation must build upon combinations of good local initiative and of changes at a macropolicy level, for example in teh areas of trade and government budget reform.
