Providing increased local employment to reduce poverty

Using employment generation programmes to assist the poor
Employment generation programmes in rural developing areas can only have an effect on food insecurity under certain conditions: some of the poverty must be due to the lack of jobs, there must be no migration outside the region (seasonal migration dilutes any local effects); and, above all, this type of programme should be designed for the long term and should be integrated wth other current development work.
