This chapter contains 46 good practice cases that contribute to MDG 1 achievement, including examples of initiatives implemented and/or supported by national goverments, development agencies, civil society, the private sector and the United Nations. They include large-scale national poverty reduction programmes, area-based development and smaller-scale interventions targeting a specific constraint or challenge. They include examples that focus on policy interventions as well as capacity development to enhance service delivery.  Budgets range from multi-million dollar national poverty reduction programmes reaching tens of millions of people nationwide, to targeted policy advocacy initiatives costing just a few thousand dollars. Regardless of budget size, there is work to be done.
