Long-term local responses to poverty in the era of perpetual crisis.
On February 22nd 2023, we hosted a webinar to share our findings. We explored the following:

- How local authorities and their partners can take a strategic approach to addressing poverty built around the framework developed by GMPA.
- What makes a good anti-poverty strategy and how can local authorities and their partners can develop and implement an anti-poverty strategy in a way that maximises its effectiveness.
We were joined by guest speakers and held a Q&A session.
