Abstract:

Generating pro‐poor growth is key to achieving the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs). While it is true that the proportion of the world's poor living in towns and cities is gradually rising, three‐quarters of all poor people still live in rural areas. The modest pace of urbanisation and current forecasts for urban population growth imply that most of the world's poor will still live in rural areas for many decades to come (Ravallion et al., 2007).
