The purpose of this paper is to review some important aspects of
rural poverty in developing countries and draw key implications for
public policy. In most developing countries a large proportion of
the poor are in rural areas and their poverty is generally far more
severe than in urban areas. The causes of rural poverty are complex
and multidimensional, involving the forces of nature, markets, and
public policy. Likewise the rural poor are quite diverse in their
resource endowments and links to markets and the government and
their strategies to deal with vulnerability and risk. The paper
identifies the rural poor and develops a policy framework for
reducing poverty. It then discusses several policy options for
poverty alleviation, including stable macroeconomic management,
transfer of assets, access to credit, jobs and infrastructure, and
safety nets. Finally, it delineates some of the strategic
guideposts for reducing rural poverty.
