Brussels, 19 February 2016/ ACP: A new book launched at the ACP House, titled “Poverty is a person: Human Agency, Women and Caribbean Households” by Dr. Theresa-Ann Rajack-Talley, calls for a more gendered and multidimensional approach to studying poverty, going beyond the traditional focus on statistics and figures.
Presented during last week’s ACP symposium on empowering youth and women entrepreneurs through South-South & Triangular Cooperation, the book attempts to address the question of why poverty still exists, using a ‘people-centred’ lens.
