Rural Development and Poverty alleviation Rural development is based on the effective use of the natural resources. These resources often not understood as valuable, or very unevenly divided. Added value for the exeisitng production or development of new value chains, like vegetables, extensive husbandry and rural tourism, can support new ways of development, which leds rural population wishing to stay again. Poverty is a combination of not equal division of natural resources and social status. Therfore the chance to climb up is limited. Improved use of natural resources, small credit facilities, gender issues and changes in the social structure are main exists out of this situation. Women have more chance to escape for poverty than men, as their focus is more one of cooperation and common initiative.
