China’s experience with rural poverty reduction was largely development-led, inducing economic growth in its poorest regions, and building the self-reliance of rural populations through land reform and rural employment generation. The webinar explored what aspects of the Chinese model could offer lessons to other countries. It also introduced the experience of China in South-South Cooperation for poverty reduction in sub-Saharan Africa and Asia.
