Description (selected)

May 14-16, 2007

Nanchang, China


China’s progress in poverty reduction has been uneven over time and space. In the recent years, the government has allocated more resources to support poverty reduction, but the monitoring and impact evaluation mechanism has not been fully established. Upon request by the International department of the Ministry of Finance China, this proposed workshop provided a forum for knowledge exchange on poverty alleviation policies and programs in China, Mexico and Thailand, and for introduction of approaches and methods for M&E and impact evaluation, focusing on large-scale poverty reduction programs. Following the Shanghai tradition of South-South learning, case studies of large scale poverty reduction programs from Mexico, Thailand and China were utilized both to review program design and to discuss impact evaluation approaches. In the final round table, participants expressed their appreciation of such South-South learning and exchange events, and requested more to be organized.
