Overview

Governments in Asia and the Pacific are increasingly recognizing the urgency for adopting strategies that promote more inclusive economic growth. Poverty has plunged in some countries in the past two decades, but its elimination in the region is unfinished business, with hundreds of millions still living in abject conditions.
