6.6 Social and poverty studies
This section contains six documents on social and poverty studies produced by SLGP, a governance development programme that operated in Nigeria from 2001 to 2008.
The studies are closely related to strategy and policy making with the main purpose to collect information for poverty reduction or wealth creation policy improvement. But they are considered a separate topic from strategy and policy development because they provide part of a social and poverty baseline for the SLGP programme.
All the studies were conducted during 2001–2003. After this, State Economic and Empowerment Development Strategies assessments and work on policy and strategy improvement were better integrated.
In these documents there are:
- Studies providing desk assessments of poverty and wealth indicators for some states, including basic indicators of poverty drawn from secondary sources,
- A report tracing efforts to devise a poverty reduction strategy paper based on the Ekiti State assessment, and
- Studies on the structure and organisation of civil society in various states.
The last group of documents are studies building a baseline of civil society organisations in each state. But they also examine potential for the involvement of these groups in reform, and in making and monitoring poverty policies.
