Urban poverty is, in a sense, an overflow of rural poverty. Because rural people in the low-income group find themselves 'unemployable' in the urban environment as a result of their deficient education and training, they continue to be poor. According to the Urban Management Programme of the UN Centre for Human Settlements (Habitat), urban poverty encompasses three main issues: lack of adequate employment, lack of appropriate urban services and insufficient social integration.
