The fundamental MISSION of CROP is to work in collaboration with knowledge networks, institutions and scholars to build independent and critical knowledge on poverty, and to help shape policies for preventing and eradicating poverty.
collaborative production and dissemination of knowledge


NETWORK and RESEARCH PROGRAMME 

CROP is a network of scholars engaged in poverty-related research. They share a thematic interest while working within a variety of disciplines such as political science, law, health, geography etc. CROP's network is the instrument with which to pursue its mission. A vibrant and interactive network is therefore imperative for its success. This is why the development of the contents and global reach of the network has been given a prominent place in the strategy plan.

CROP is also a research programme with a focus on planning and developing research proposals and projects, as well as disseminating research. This is organised by the secretariat in collaboration with national and international partners.
