Re­gional Co­op­er­a­tion

Southasia - - Cover story -

South Asia has the po­ten­tial to ac­cel­er­ate growth and re­duce poverty, if the re­gion could ex­ploit four un­der-uti­lized spa­tial fea­tures of the re­gion: ge­og­ra­phy, trans­porta­tion, mo­bil­ity, and scale economies. By fo­cus­ing on the in­come of the poor both through the growth mech­a­nism and by re­duc­ing vul­ner­a­bil­ity, re­gional co­op­er­a­tion can be help­ful in low­er­ing in­come in­equal­ity; re­duc­ing poverty and find­ing so­lu­tions for flood con­trol, ir­ri­ga­tion and river trans­port.
