Rural-based economic activity can be just as effective for poverty reduction as that of urban sectors. Since the 1990s, rural transformation has lifted nearly as many people out of poverty as urban development. Many more will be able to climb out of poverty if greater priority is given to public investments in rural areas. In order to help boost small-scale farm productivity and incomes, and to create vast amounts of off-farm employment in expanding segments of food supply and value chains, new strategies are needed to leverage the untapped potential of food systems through agro-industrial development.
