Cambridge University’s Program for Industry in association with the WBCSD and Oxfam has launched a Business and Poverty Program to examine the inter-relationship of business and poverty.

The Program will bring together senior company managers, experienced practitioners, academic thinkers and NGO leaders. It aims to assist leaders from major organizations to develop an advanced understanding of how, through their mainstream commercial activities, businesses can improve the quality of life of the world’s poorest communities. It will examine the opportunities and implications for business in entering and operating in emerging markets, as well examining the economic impact of corporations in developing countries.
