Abstract


Given the demographic realities in the developing world, it is
not possible to solve the problems of poverty in these countries
following the neoclassical model of economic growth. Since the majority
of people are ruralites in these countries, the focus should be on rural
development directly rather than on waiting for the benefits to trickle
down to the rural poor. What is needed is to improve the quality of life
and productivity of the small-holders or landless whose livelihood is
based on natural resources which are depleting and require urgent
attention. More options should be available for the rural people in
their own area.
