A Street Livelihood Report
This Street Livability Report is the outcome of the collaboration between Ehsaas Program, the premier poverty alleviation initiative in Pakistan and Pakistan Institute of Development Economics (PIDE), the major public sector think tank. Indeed, credit for this work on a neglected segment of Urban Poor goes to the insights and leadership of Dr. Sania Nishtar, Special Assistant to Prime Minister on Poverty Alleviation. She was presented with the draft legislative bill on the livelihood protection and regulation of street vendors in Islamabad, which was well-received by her. This draft legislative bill became the basis of further collaboration between Ehsaas and PIDE for the work on street livelihood.
