Briefing Notes 

The briefing notes inform readers about poverty issues and policies addressing poverty. They present a condensed and synthesised introduction to current state of the art and have been specifically tailored for the SDC, its partners and interested development practitioners. The notes do not aim to address the full scope of what poverty means and how it can be understood, but rather to highlight several specific issues.
