Poverty, inequality and rural development

Extreme poverty is mainly a rural phenomenon. In fact, four of every five people living below the international poverty line reside in rural areas, according to the World Bank (Castañeda et al., 2018). However, there has been tremendous progress in reducing rural poverty over the last decades, partly as a result of successful policy strategies to promote the expansion of economic opportunities for the rural poor and to expand social protection in rural areas.
