India has experienced massive economic growth over decades that has lifted many out of poverty. Yet, there are still high levels of poverty in many parts of the country, and economic development may conflict with indigenous rights to land and natural resources. We research why poverty is still high in a fast growing economy, and how access to finance, labor markets and health services, as well as legal rights may improve the lives of the poor.
