Bristol Poverty Institute
Working towards the eventual eradication of world poverty
836 million people still live in extreme poverty; world governments share an international ambition to eradicate poverty for good; never was the work of the Bristol Poverty Institute more critical in the modern world.
Drawing on 25 years' experience as the Townsend Centre for International Poverty Research, we provide essential research and data to governments, NGOs and private sector bodies striving for poverty reduction.
Our work centres around the production and dissemination of practical solutions and policies to catalyse the eventual ending of world poverty.
We provide multidisciplinary analysis of the underlying causes of poverty with leading-edge expertise in the measurement of child/youth poverty and in the development of efficient anti-poverty policies.
