A Buyer-Led Approach to Creating Jobs for the Poor

Event Date: 
October 19, 2012 - 12:00 - 13:30

Dr. James T. Riordan challenges conventional wisdom on international development work in his book, “We Do Know How: A Buyer-Led Approach to Creating Jobs for the Poor.” Dr. Riordan shows how to build on the incentives that drive businesses and, in the process, expand poor people's incomes. With more than 35 years of experience working in the public, non-profit and academic sectors, Riordan has designed and implemented anti-poverty, food security, business development, rural development and policy reform programs in 59 countries. Sponsored by Global Envision, Mercy Corps’ blog about market-driven solutions to poverty.
