This report concerns the poverty reduction policy process in three Ugandan districts: Bushenyi, Lira and Tororo. The diversity of understandings of poverty that are acted upon in the policy process at the level of local government are discussed. Key issues are examined which mediate the participation of both government and civil society actors in the poverty reduction policy process. Some of the spaces in which the policy process is enacted are looked at from the point of view of the impact on social inclusion or exclusion of particular actors.
