Spatio-temporal variability in access to services and natural resources at meso-scale, and their impact on household welfare and poverty in Africa and Southeast AsiaWhile it is clear that management of natural resources and alleviation of poverty among rural populations should be considered together, developing regional strategies that effectively tackle both issues can prove challenging. This research project seeks to identify the key factors limiting rural populations’ access to services and natural resources in Africa and Southeast Asia. It also examines how this impacts their household welfare and use of natural resources, thereby aiding the design of targeted poverty alleviation strategies.
