Reducing poverty in South Africa, accelerating development and achieving the MDG's adopted at the United Nations as part the Millennium Declaration in 2000 require better policies. The problem is that policy-makers and other stakeholders do not know which policies are most suitable when dealing with national priority issues, and they also do not know how best policies can be implemented in different contexts. A better understanding of how research in the areas of education and poverty can contribute to pro-poor policies and help improve development outcomes is crucial. The analysis included a deconstruction of concepts, frameworks, models and strategies that work for the developing world.
