Assessment of Rural Poverty: Asia and the Pacific
PDF File Size: 1.21 MB | Download   
When the poor define their poverty, they talk about a range of dimensions they consider important. Income is only one of these many dimensions. Although the Asia and the Pacific Region has made impressive progress in the last three decades in economic growth and poverty reduction, the rate of poverty reduction seems to be slowing down in many countries. Poverty is basically a rural problem in the region, and the gap between rural and urban poverty is widening over time. Growing income inequality, economic vulner- ability to external shocks, persistence of poverty, and high deprivation level are the major issues that constrain rural poverty reduction in the region. IFAD’s experience has brought to light the complexity of poverty – and the need to take account of what poverty means to the poor themselves. When the IFAD-funded Bihar- Madhya Pradesh Tribal Development Programme1 was being formulated in 1997, indigenous women (or ‘tribal women’ as they are called in India) described how they view poverty. Poverty, to them, was not having enough food from the farm, little or no access to drinking water, and low literacy.
