    Rural poverty reduction is one of FAO’s global goals. It is intrinsically linked with eradicating hunger, food insecurity and malnutrition as well as fostering the sustainable management and utilization of natural resources. In an effort to reach these objectives, FAO has developed a series of briefs on how to conduct poverty analysis and how to address poverty more effectively in projects and programmes. This series is composed of five briefs and represents a simple quick start guide for project formulators to assist them in conducting poverty analysis and addressing poverty considerations in project formulation:
    • Poverty Measurement for Rural Areas: Defines poverty in the context of FAO’s work, explains the basic steps behind measuring poverty using both monetary and multidimensional approaches, and provides a list of potential data sources.
    • Developing Rural Poverty Profiles for FAO Projects: Defines poverty profiles and explains their use in the context of FAO’s work.
    • Using Poverty Maps for FAO Projects: Explains how poverty maps can support poverty-reduction interventions and provides an overview of poverty mapping techniques.
    • Targeting for Rural Poverty Reduction Interventions: Defines the targeting process, outlines targeting mechanisms, and provides guidance on how to select targeting mechanisms for different circumstances.
    • Poverty Reduction in the Project Cycle: A guide for project formulators: Provides practical guidance for project formulators on how to integrate poverty considerations during project formulation.
