Published By: United Nations Development Programme, India | Published Date: December, 01 , 2009

This paper from a two-day conference in New Delhi explores the relevance of CCTs in addressing entrenched issues of urban poverty even as across Asia there remain few social protection measures that provide safety nets in times of crisis.

This is further accentuated by rapid urbanisation underway in the entire subcontinent.
