Chapter Summary

Participatory poverty reduction is the integration of the philosophy and methodology of the "participatory approach" and the work of poverty reduction. Introducing participatory philosophy and methodology to poverty reduction work is a way to deal with some of the problems encountered in traditional poverty reduction work. It can be said that, by cultivating and promoting a sense of ownership in poverty reduction work, the participatory approach encourages individuals to proactively lift themselves out of poverty and seeks to increase the capacity for self-development in poor communities, which is what is effective in providing long-term solutions to poverty-which is the ultimate goal of poverty reduction. This chapter examines the participatory poverty reduction activities that are led by the government.
