Urban Poverty in China

 

Urban poverty is an emerging problem. This book explores the household and neighbourhood factors that lead to both the generation and continuance of urban poverty in China. It is argued that the urban Chinese are not a homogenous social group, but combine laid-off workers and rural migrants, resulting in stark contrasts between migrant and workers’ neighbourhoods and villages.

The project in Brazil, China, and India aims to improve the understanding of the links among energy costs and use, the transformation of food supply chains including analysis of horticulture and dairy supply and technologies, and poverty alleviation to formulate policy pathways towards more optimal energy use.
