This protocol sets out the objectives for the review:
to map the available evidence that seeks to evaluate or better understand the effects of government policies and interventions on the translation of economic growth into reductions in income poverty, in low and middle income countries;
to establish whether any particular types of policies or interventions tend to reduce or increase the translation of growth into income poverty reduction on average – in in other words, whether there are any consistent and generalisable findings or results across contexts and methods;
to explain heterogeneity in the estimated effect of such policies or interventions, across countries, regions or over time (‘structural’ heterogeneity) or research methods used (‘method’ heterogeneity);
to understand better the processes and mechanisms through which government policies and interventions affect the translation of growth into income poverty reduction.
