Addressing poverty through local governance
This publication presents the findings of work undertaken by CLES with the support of the Joseph Rowntree Foundation (JRF). The work is based on a literature and evidence review and seeks to identify the roles of place based mechanisms such as procurement and community budgeting in addressing poverty. The work concludes with a series of recommendations as to how addressing poverty can become a core part of the practice of local authorities and other stakeholders through more effective use of the identified place based mechanisms.
