Public Affairs Conference - Give a fish or teach to fish?

Public Affairs Conference - Give a fish or teach to fish?
Date and time
3:00 PM - 4:15 PM, April 06, 2017
Description

There are several traditional approaches to alleviating poverty.  One is direct assistance, which provides immediately consumable resources to the needy (give a fish).  Another is the development approach, which typically includes training/education and provision of productive resources (teach to fish).  Governments and NGOs spend much time and money on both approaches.  The optimal mix of these approaches  and even whether such an optimum exists  is an important topic for public policy and global relief and development efforts.  How might the best approaches vary by situation, time, location, culture and other factors?
