Adult Learning and Poverty Reduction

Report on the Workshop Held at the CONFINTEA Mid-term Review Conference, Bangkok, Thailand, September 2003

Although figures on global poverty are shocking, poverty itself is not inevitable. Education and training are among the most important preconditions for breaking the vicious cycle of poverty and what it means for individuals – inadequate food, polluted water, insufficient sanitation and healthcare, powerlessness and a lack of dignity. This booklet looks at international, regional and national case studies which reveal how poverty reduction through adult education can be an enabling process
