This report reviews findings from research on access to rural non-farm employment in developing and post-socialist transition economies. This research has been funded by DFID in the context of its collaborative programme on rural development with the World Bank, and is led by the Natural Resources Institute (NRI) under two different projects. One focuses on India and Uganda whereas the other is being carried out in Armenia, Georgia and Romania.
The report is structured in three sections. The first section focuses on the determinants of access to non-farm employment and income at the household and individual levels, while the second reviews key access determinants at the community or regional level. The third and final section highlights key policy issues arising from the previous two sections.
