Why is Access to Basic Services Not Inclusive? A Synthesis with a Special Focus on Developing Asia

Guanghua Wan and Ruth Francisco

MPRA Paper from University Library of Munich, Germany

Abstract: This paper synthesizes factors that could contribute to the failure of basic service delivery to the poor. It also highlights successful projects and good practices from developing Asian countries which may help promote inclusiveness in providing basic social services in developing countries. While both demand and supply factors are discussed, special attention is given to noneconomic factors including institutional deficiencies, the lack of information or awareness, and the multiplicity of basic services.
