Reduce Rural Poverty

Policy support

Country legal frameworks are the backbone to improving the livelihoods of the rural poor. Reducing rural poverty requires multi-sectoral policies, strategies and programmes that address the economic, environmental and social vulnerabilities that poor rural households face in their daily lives. To promote inclusive and equitable policies, FAO encourages collaboration among government ministries and supports platforms for policy dialogue.
