    Rural areas are home to about 47 percent of the global population (in 2014) and to about 75 percent of the world’s poor and hungry people. A large share of this population depends directly or indirectly on agriculture for their livelihood. Information on rural incomes, livelihoods and living conditions plays a fundamental role in understanding medium and long term trends in the structural transformation of agriculture and rural economies. Comparable data are required to properly design, monitor and assess the impact of context-specific policies aimed at making the transformation more inclusive to reduce rural poverty, hunger and inequality. Accessible, timely and comparable information on rural incomes, livelihoods and their evolution, however, is not available in many countries, nor easily accessible. To fill this gap, FAO, the World Bank and IFAD have decided to collaborate in developing a Rural Livelihoods Information System (RuLIS). RuLIS will shed light on where and how people make a living in rural areas and to help improving their living conditions and will scale-up the production and compilation of data on incomes, livelihoods and rural development from a large pool of countries, and link them to policy making. RuLIS will also support the monitoring of SDG indicators 2.3.1 and 2.3.2
