Poverty and Vulnerability

Poverty and Vulnerability

Poverty means reduced or lack of access to material, economic, social, political or cultural resources required fulfilling basic needs and is caused from unemployment, social exclusion, high vulnerability of certain population to disasters and diseases as well as other phenomena which prevent them from being productive. Poverty and vulnerability are not only an issue of lack of income and resources, but also leads to hunger and malnutrition, limited access to education and other basic services, social discrimination and exclusion and also lack of participation in decision-making.

According to a UN report about 836 million people still live in extreme poverty struggling to fulfill the most basic needs while many people still risk slipping back into poverty and another 30 million children are growing up poor. However, poverty is not isolated to only rural or urban areas and both rural and urban poverty has the same negative outcomes and unique challenges. With the same tone of sustainable development goals dRi is also committed to put an effort to eradicate poverty in all its dimensions through its gentle research initiative and make sure that poor and vulnerable have equal rights to economic resources, access to basic services, ownership and control over land and other forms of property, inheritance, natural resources, appropriate new technology and financial services.

Our expertise includes Research Design & Measurement, Feasibility Study, Socio Economic Study, vulnerability assessment, Monitoring & Evaluation, Impact Evaluation etc. employing advanced and contemporary quantitative and qualitative research tools.
