Storyboard Text

  • 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.
