Population and poverty: The situation in Asia and the Pacific

The main objective of this paper is to analyse the linkages between demographic dynamics and various dimensions of poverty and to suggest population-related policy options to minimize the adverse impacts, and strengthen the positive impacts, of demographic dynamics on socio-economic development including poverty reduction. The paper will begin by considering the dimensions of poverty and different ways of viewing poverty. It will then examine trends in poverty in the ESCAP region. Then the linkages between demographic dynamics and various dimensions of poverty will be discussed, and some resultant policy challenges highlighted.
