However on the other hand, towns and cities appear to offer jobs and a regualr wage, with better services and housing and also a range of facilities from leisure to schools and hospitals.
But the reality may be very different - few jobs, poor housing in shanty towns, access to services and facilities blocked by poverty.
Whilst rural-urban migration may be helping economic development or rural pop. issues, it doesn't help poverty. Poverty is deeply rooted in rural areas.
An example of such is Kenya. Half of Kenya's 31 million are poor. 75% of the poor live in rural areas. The trebling of Kenya's population over the past 30 years is one of the causes for rising rural poverty.
Another cause is low agricultural productivity; this is exacerbated by land degradation, insecure land tenure, poor farming methods and loss of workers due to HIV/AIDS.
However the recent introduction of commerical farming in LIC's has been a significant step forward in terms of rural economic development.
However Kenya could persuade us otherwise. A better option could be tourism. Many LIC's have the resources for tourism - scenery, wildlife and wilderness. Eco tourism also has many benefits - its based on natural resources, profits stay in local community, its sustainable and conserves rural areas, and it minimises use of non-renewable resources.
