About the Book :

This book attempts to measure the spatial incidence of poverty in tribal areas in India, with special reference to Kalahandi district of Orissa. Correlating the physical and environmental factors, such as access to land, water and forest, with the incidence of poverty, it analyses the institutional and social relation of production in understanding the persistent poverty in the area. The book examines the rationale, relevance and efficacy of various development programmes IRDP, NREP, RLEGP, ITDP, DPAP, PDS, ICDS and ADAPT towards eradication of poverty. It also suggests alternate options for sustainable development. The book is of great use for policy makers, development activists and organizations, and researchers.
