The Rural Poverty Report 2011

The Rural Poverty Report 2011

REPORT by the International Fund for Agricultural Development (IFAD)

IFAD, December 2010

The report looks at the number of rural poor people living in the developing world, poverty rates in rural areas, and the percentage of poor people residing in rural areas.

It also offers regional breakdowns of these estimates, and includes new information on how many people move in and out of poverty over time. It points to emerging opportunities for rural growth and development and makes  recommendations on policies and investments that can help rural women and men move out of poverty and become part of the solution for the global food security challenges of the next few decades.
