The Study aims to determine the influence of public investment in reducing monetary poverty in the Cusco region. It utilizes a non-experimental quantitative design. Information from the Ministry of Economy and Finance (MEF) and the National Household Survey (ENAHO) was used. The analysis is carried out through a correlational approach and an econometric model is used with the STATA V16 software. Data are obtained from secondary sources, and the analysis was conducted over the period from 2008 to 2021. The results show that public investment is crucial for reducing monetary poverty in Cusco. For every million soles invested, a decrease of 0.82308% in monetary poverty is achieved. During the period 2008-2021, productive public investment reduced poverty by an average of 0.3138%, while social public investment reduced poverty by an average of 0.9976%. Environmental public investment also contributed to reducing monetary poverty by 0.6643%. These investments improve economic and social conditions, promote equal opportunities, and protect the environment.
