IRP publishes a range of materials to disseminate information about our conferences, events, and researchers’ findings to a broad audience. We are “going green” by switching from print to electronic publication and dissemination whenever possible. We encourage Focus subscribers to e-mail us at email@example.com and ask to be switched from paper to electronic Focus (please provide your full name and the postal mailing address where you currently receive Focus). We have also introduced a new publication, Fast Focus, to inform readers about recent poverty research between issues of Focus.
