Achieving success in rural development: toward implementation of an integral approach

Abstract: Starting from an analysis of the reasons for failure of previous "integrated" approaches to rural development, we propose here a conceptual framework for an "integral" approach better in tune with current opportunities for and constraints on rural poverty reduction. The approach is centered on the process whereby well-being is determined, linking household asset positions, the context where the assets are used, pathways from poverty through specific livelihood strategies, and well-being outcomes. This in turn identifies entry points for policies and programs to improve the well-being outcomes that consist in interventions to: increase access to assets, improve context, provide social protection, and achieve social incorporation of the rural poor.
