Dynamics, Determinants and Policy Implications
Food security and poverty reduction policies essentially require a meticulous assessment of the nature and dynamics of deprivation. In rural Ethiopia, poverty is deep and pervasive. This study examines the multi-faceted and inter-temporal poverty incidences in 15 rural communities representing the ‘Enset’ growing areas, oxen plough and oxen-hoe mixed farming systems in rural Ethiopia using four panel rounds of the Ethiopian Rural Household Survey (ERHS). It has covered multiple dimensions of human wellbeing including but not limited to poverty incidence, vulnerability to poverty, income inequality and food consumption patterns. Hence, this book bestows a comprehensive investigation of the dynamics and determinants of poverty from different perspectives employing wide-ranging methods of analysis.
