Pro-poor growth development and income inequality: Poverty-related Millennium Development Goal (MDG 1) on banks of the Lower Mekong Basin in Cambodia
World Development Perspectives, 2017, vol. 7-8, 1-8
In this paper, I analyze the degree to which the Millennium Development Goal 1 (MDG1) has alleviated poverty; pro-poor growth development-associated constraints; inequality of growth and income distribution in the LMB, Cambodia. The findings of the study reveal: that pro-poor growth development has proven ineffective; that growth and income distribution are unequal; and, that poverty is caused by unproductive agriculture with insufficiency of infrastructure, skills and markets. I argue that MDG 1 may not be achieved without future effort being made towards realizing even contribution between the agricultural and other sectors; enhancing economic development; and, increased investment in infrastructure and skill building.
