How Families Cope With Poverty in Asia: Lessons from a multi-country review of Household Economy Analysis and Cost of the Diet Assessments, 2011-15

In order to understand better the food security and livelihoods challenges in Asia, and how these relate to undernutrition and broader child wellbeing, Save the Children has conducted a retrospective synthesis review of its analyses in the region. This review draws on the data, findings and recommendations from 15 studies carried out in five countries in Asia – Bangladesh, Myanmar, Nepal, Pakistan and the Philippines – between 2011 and 2015.

How Families Cope with Poverty in Asia aims to improve understanding of:

  • what drives household poverty and food insecurity in Asia, and
  • how the poorest households – and children, in particular – are affected by poverty and food insecurity.

This review is intended primarily for economic strengthening and nutrition practitioners and policy-makers in the region.
