Wellbeing and Poverty Pathways, University of Bath

Wellbeing and Poverty Pathways is an international research partnership exploring the links between wellbeing and poverty.

The research involves two rounds of data collection across two years, with 700 respondents in rural communities in India and Zambia.

This will provide systematic new evidence on the factors that promote wellbeing at personal and community level, how these relate to poverty, and what drives change over time.

In partnership with local NGOs, the project is also working to produce a statistically-tested approach to assessing wellbeing in monitoring and evaluation of poverty-focused development programmes.

The project runs from 2010-13 and involves the University of Bath (UK), Brunel University (UK), Oxfam Hong Kong, HODI (Zambia), Chaupal (India) and the G.B.Pant Institute (India). It is hosted by the Centre for Development Studies at the University of Bath, and funded by the UK’s Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC) and the Department for International Development (DFID).
