On 21 November 2018 Thomson Reuters Foundation reported:
Rural poverty has risen for the first time in a decade in Latin America and the Caribbean, reversing earlier gains, the U.N. Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) said on Wednesday, 21 November. Two million people joined the ranks of the region's rural poor between 2014 and 2016, taking the total to nearly half the rural population, many of them subsistence farmers and landless agricultural workers, according to a new FAO report. ... Eliminating rural poverty is key to combating drug and human trafficking, as well as illegal logging and mining, which have been gaining ground in rural areas, the FAO said.
Global Good News service views this news as the failure of modern government and business systems.
Such 'flops' highlight the need for more intelligent, evolutionary, Natural Law based, life-supporting systems.
Rural poverty in the region fell between 1990 and 2014, fuelled by economic growth and a commodities boom that allowed governments to invest more in combating the problem.
But falling growth between 2014 and 2016 led to a small rise in both poverty and extreme poverty, the FAO said.
It said that while countries including Brazil, Bolivia, Colombia, Ecuador, and Peru have reduced rural poverty rates in recent decades, a huge urban and rural divide remains.
