Access Rights and Poverty

This draft working paper presents the findings and lessons from research spanning two years and six countries on the interaction between poverty, access rights, and environment.

We are posting it here in the hopes of having some public commentary which might shape a final draft. In the spirit of transparency and openness, we invite any and all to respond to all or part of the paper.

What would pro-poor access look like?

The Access Initiative is trying to answer this question by examining access law and practice in four countries.

For the second round of studies on poverty, four countries–Cameroon, Paraguay, Philippines, and Sri Lanka–carried out case studies on access rights and poverty. The four studies are included for public perusal below.

These four studies will make up the basis for a review of the current Access Initiative methodology. This will be summarized in an upcoming discussion paper due in the next month.
