This research project addresses the first overarching research question in the call specification: the factors which shape pathways into and out of poverty, how people experience these factors and the role of policy in creating sustained routes out of poverty.
Projects & Publications
Each project is summarised to describe the work of the research grant recipients and their intended impact and outputs. This view shows projects mapped to the locations where the research was carried out.
Projects have been assigned one of eight primary cross-cutting themes. To see all the projects grouped under a particular theme click on that topic in the menu bar. You can also use the search fields to find projects or their related outputs grouped by country, keywords, location, organisation, or people who were the named grantees for the project or publication authors. You can make multiple selections. Use The Impact Initiative logo in the top left of the screen or the home icon to return to the home page.

The research responds to the unprecedented emergence of global environmental norms intended to reconcile natural resource management with poverty alleviation.
Sustainable fishing and the conservation of maritime resources requires regulation, but also efficient coordination and governance of common resources (fisheries and fish stocks) by local fishing communities.
Pastoralists are farmers who raise livestock, and move their herds in search of fresh pasture and water supplies. There are 12 million in Ethiopia and they are often in extreme poverty. Unfortunately the pastures they use are disputed and they often come into conflict with other land users.
