Ranking Social Policies And Projects Revisited

            The mandate of development institutions is to reduce poverty. Approximately more than (X) 70% of poverty is in (urban and) rural areas poorly served by governments. Often public policies in developing nations respond to political pressures, are dominated by urban bias, and are “top down”. The (urban and) rural poor don’t participate in the public choice process.

            This proposal is to build a “comprehensive” index, easy to understand by all stakeholders and target groups, to assess the degree of progressiveness of policies for the (urban) rural poor vis-à-vis overall public policies. The index will be constructed integrating sub-components which reflect specific desirability criteria to meet welfare benefits of policies for the (urban) rural poor.
