Intra-household decision making and family public goods Intra-household decision making and family public goods

Intra-household decision-making is a fundamental development issue, particularly so for less privileged households in developing countries. Intra-household decisions are of importance in achieving various household development goals, including investments in family public goods and the  developmental outcomes of such investments, such as the attainment of education, improved health, and general family well-being. The realisation
of the development impacts of investments in family public goods requires a proper understanding of gender dynamics, economic empowerment,  and inter-generational cooperation in intra-household decision-making.
