This publication is part of a series of books on comparative best practices in social development between Latin America and the Caribbean and East Asia undertaken by the Institute for Social Development (INDES) and the Japan Program of the Inter-American Development Bank (IDB). INDES is both a training institute and a forum for the exchange of knowledge; its main goal is to build capacity among decision makers and managers of social programs to improve the impact of economic and social policies in promoting human development and equitable growth in Latin America. The Japan Program established by the IDB and the Government of Japan in 1999, aims to promote the exchange of knowledge and development experience between Japan and the rest of Asia, Latin America and the Caribbean. The papers included in this volume were discussed at the conference "Priorities and Strategies in Rural Poverty Reduction: Experiences from Latin America and East Asia".
