    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:
