About Us

Covering Asian news and blogs on poverty and development, Poverty Asia is a platform of knowledge management for a global audience. Poverty Asia aims to share articles from various sources.

Blogging has become increasingly more popular. There are a lot of researchers, policy makers and development practitioners writing opinions and analysis, who work on poverty reduction. It has shifted a player of knowledge management from organisations to individuals. This is great because we have more information and real voice directly from the fields.

But at the same time, we have a problem. They post everywhere. Readers need to surf on many websites to check updates. We think it would be great if we could visit a website and see all the updates of poverty and development blogs. This is why we are here.

Poverty Asia serves poverty reduction as a knowledge management hub for all the policy makers and researchers who work on poverty and development in Asia.
