      This interdisciplinary study applies human rights theory to the problems of rural poverty in the Third World. Considering the interdependence of minimal food and health security with minimal assurance of basic freedoms, political scientist Alan G. Smith traces the linkage to the need of the food-insecure to seek clientelistic dependencies on better-off neighbors--relationships that often. Poverty is deep and widespread in rural Bangladesh: according to the National Bureau of Statistics (BBS) in , the poverty rate was % in rural areas compared to % in urban areas. This national survey showed average monthly expenditure nationally to be TK 15, (about GBP); for rural households it wa (about GBP).

      In terms of hardcore poverty, which is a subset of absolute poverty, the rate for overall rural Bangladesh is percent, whereas for plain land indigenous peoples, the rate is about 25 percent. contributes to urban poverty alleviation, but also show that urban growth appears to have no affect on rural poverty. Other micro-level empirical studies support these findings in many other settings including Wodon () in Bangladesh, Thorbecke and Jung () in .

      With member countries, staff from more than countries, and offices in over locations, the World Bank Group is a unique global partnership: five institutions working for sustainable solutions that reduce poverty and build shared prosperity in developing countries. Rural poverty refers to poverty in rural areas, including factors of rural society, rural economy, and political systems that give rise to the poverty found there. Rural poverty is often discussed in conjunction with spatial inequality, which in this context refers to the inequality between urban and rural areas. Both rural poverty and spatial inequality are global phenomena, but like poverty.
