Asset-Based Poverty in Rural Tajikistan: Who Climbs out and Who Falls in?

Oleksiy Ivaschenko and Cem Mete

No RP2008-26, WIDER Working Paper Series from World Institute for Development Economic Research (UNU-WIDER)

Abstract: Tajikistan's rural sector has witnessed substantial development since the country began to emerge from civil conflict in 1999. Gross agricultural output increased 64 per cent from 1999 to 2003, and there were significant developments in the agricultural reform agenda. This paper uses the panel component of two surveys conducted in Tajikistan at a one-year interval (2003 and 2004) to explore the major determinants of the transition out of/into poverty of rural households. Poverty status is measured in the asset space, thus indicating structural rather than transitory poverty movements.
