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.
