Summary "This volume looks at the extent to which macro-planning and major poverty alleviation programmes of the Asia-Pacific region concretely benefit women, and thus provides a regional perspective on the interrelationships of gender, economic growth and poverty." "The essays included here (a selection from papers presented at a meeting on the subject in Vietnam) focus on issues related to the interlinkages between macro-economic patterns and gender and poverty situations, major approaches to gender issues and poverty alleviation, and new possibilities to promote gender equity and reduce poverty."--Jacket
