Over time, Burkina Faso has been experiencing a widening gap between people in poverty and people experiencing the country's economic growth. This difference of inequality is important because, although there is a concerning difference between the two groups, the solution is to understand how to redistribute the benefits of economic prosperity to the group experiencing the sever consequences of poverty.
This presentation is based on AMA Innovation Lab projects for the Poverty Traps Conference. This conference is a gathering point for USAID and other development assistant agencies to connect the poor to economic growth.
This presentation was presented by Samuel Kabore from the Chronic Poverty Research Center on February 26, 2009 at Washington, DC.
