Poverty reduction is about improving the well-being of disadvantaged families, sharing
the benefits of growth across communities in villages and cities, and connecting
remote regions within the country and with the rest of the world. This agenda has played
a central role in Thailand’s development model. There is little doubt that commitment
to poverty reduction by policy makers, businesses, and civil society has contributed to a
remarkable record of poverty reduction over recent decades. Yet, questions and concerns
have been raised about the effectiveness of economic policies in supporting growth in
household income and providing communities with access to basic services. While
poverty reduction policies may be a force for good, they also have to be implemented
