Creating Value for All: Strategies for Doing Business with the Poor

    Description
    Creating Value for All: Strategies for Doing Business with the Poor was launched on 1 July 2008 by the UN Development Programme.

    The first report of UNDP's Growing Inclusive Markets Initiative, this report advances UNDP's efforts to turn the initiative's ideas and analysis into action through a dialogue with the private sector, government and civil society. It is the product of research based on 50 case studies, writing and reviews by a network of developing country academics and a diverse advisory group of institutions with expertise in the private sector's role in development

    Creating Value for All highlights five strategies used successfully to overcome the most common obstacles to doing business with the poor, as well as two new tools: a strategy matrix to help find potential solutions to common constraints and heat maps that identify opportunities by depicting access to water, credit, electricity or telephone service in a specific geographical area using color codes.
