The State of world rural poverty : an inquiry into its causes and consequences by Idriss Jazaïry( Book )
16 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 464 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Poverty is spreading. There are now as many people living in absolute poverty - almost a billion in the rural Third World alone - as there were living on the entire planet only a century ago. Yet poverty continues to be shrouded in mystery. Consider that four-fifths of the world's poor live in rural areas; about 340 million people worldwide are currently chronically ill from malnutrition; over 500 million do not get enough calories to do a full day's labor; at a time when enough grain is being produced to provide everyone in the world with twice the daily minimum caloric requirements, global hunger is at an all-time high; and half again as many rural women - almost 600 million - live in absolute poverty today as did 20 years ago. We need to ask ourselves what has gone wrong. Despite almost four decades and billions of dollars in development activities, we are barely in a position to track the changing dynamics of poverty or to define with conviction the processes that entrap the poor in their misery. Accounting for about 90% of global poverty, rural poverty, through transmigration, is also a main contributor to urban poverty. It is in the rural areas of the world where poverty is most severe in human terms, where the hunger, hopelessness, hardship, and despair commonly associated with entrenched poverty are most pronounced, where basic health services, sanitation, educational opportunities, and other common amenities are most lacking. The alleviation of rural poverty is therefore tantamount to the alleviation of global poverty in its entirety. The State of World Rural Poverty offers the first comprehensive look at the economic conditions and prospects of the world's rural poor. Certain to become a definitive source of data and analysis, especially for the unique rural poverty indexes of 114 developing countries, as well as an invaluable policy guide to issues involving development and poverty in underdeveloped nations, this volume incorporates research from all over the world

Rural poverty report 2001 : the challenge of ending rural poverty by International Fund for Agricultural Development( Book )
6 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 257 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Progress in reducing rural poverty has stalled. In the 1990s, it fell to less than one third of the rate needed to meet the United Nations' commitment to halve world poverty by 2015. Although three quarters of the world's 1.2 billion extremely poor people live and work in rural areas, aid to agriculture, their main source of income, has fallen by two thirds. In this Rural Poverty Report 2001, the International Fund for Agricultural Development argues that, to be successful, poverty-reduction policies must focus on rural areas. To overcome disadvantages stemming from remoteness, lack of education and health care, insecure and unproductive jobs, high fertility and (often) discrimination as women or ethnic minorities, the rural poor need: legally secure entitlements to assets (especially land and water); technology (above all for increasing the output and yield of food staples); access to markets; opportunities to participate in decentralized resource management; and access to microfinance. Such policies not only promote economic growth but also help alleviate urban poverty. A sustainable reduction in poverty calls for the creation of a pro-poor policy environment, and allocation of a greater volume of resources targeted to the poor with greater effectiveness. This needs to be complemented by better partnership among government, civil society and the private sector so that the poor are empowered to take responsibility for their own development.
