Poverty Reduction Strategies and the Rural Productive Sectors: Insights from Malawi, Nicaragua and Vietnam

Working papers

Written by Andrew Shepherd, Steve Wiggins

This paper looks at the treatment of rural productive sectors in PRSs' particularly agriculture but also, more briefly, tourism, forestry and fisheries. The momentum is currently very strong for robust and targeted research and action to eliminate poverty. Poverty is to a large extent a rural phenomenon and the potential contribution of the rural productive sectors to poverty reduction and growth is quite significant.
