Pro-Poor Growth is so popularly used nowadays among the researchers and practitioners in the organizations for international development. The concept and the approach are expected to underpin the development policies for "growth accompanied by poverty reduction". However, the results from the growth-poverty empirical analyses are not easy to be translated into specific policies for a developing country, since the studies mainly depend on the conclusion from the cross-country analyses and at the same time less focused on the exploration of mechanisms that connect development policies and poverty reduction. This paper critically reviews the pro-poor growth studies since the late 1990s and identifies the issues when we apply the approach in practice. Furthermore, the paper argues that more empirical researches are needed to identify the mechanism which links policies and poverty incidents, if we hope to make the approach workable.
