Marginality: Addressing the Nexus of Poverty, Exclusion and Ecology

Marginality: Addressing the Nexus of Poverty, Exclusion and Ecology

BOOK edited by Joachim von Braun and Franz W. Gatzweiler

Springer, 2014

The book breaks new grounds in holistic thinking and understanding of underdevelopment and persistent poverty.

It extends the concept of social protection to include the impact of adverse ecological environments and climate on the  wellbeing of poor people. Thereby it broadens the concept of poverty and shows the complexity of the issues in need to be addressed for designing development programs beyond the narrow objective of eradication of income poverty, and the complementary roles of government, corporate sector and civil society organizations for tackling the intractable problems in the last miles of our path to poverty reduction.

The book extends the horizon on existing knowledge of underdevelopment, it is useful to students, policy makers and development actors. 

The book is published as open access by Springer, free to read and download
