Abstract

This review for the Scottish Government looks at the literature on poverty in rural areas. Understanding rural poverty is a key component of working towards sustainable rural development.

This study, commissioned by Scottish Government, reviewed the literature on poverty in rural areas. It explored the characteristics of living in poverty in rural areas and how it differs to living in poverty in urban areas and it identified the policy options and examples of success/good practice in moving people out of poverty in rural areas.
