      road investments or national road programmes examined how individual road length affected impact. However, this issue was covered by the cross-sectional approaches. In general, the studies offer little guidance as to the standard of road interventions that would maximise income generation and reduce poverty. However, Fan et al. A rural roads authority is important to spearhead poverty-centred allocations and rural road scheme prioritisation and to ensure secure long-term funding for rural road development and maintenance. If not in place, then a directorate within the Ministry of Roads (Transport/Works) with appropriate expertise should be in place to champion the.

      than upgrading existing rural roads to all-weather quality. Analyses from China showed that the greatest returns to investments came from the construction of basic (low-volume) rural roads. The investment in such roads had a greater influence on poverty reduction and national GDP than investments in better-quality, higher-volume roads. Investments in rural electrification reduce poverty the most and have the second largest growth impact. These two investments dominate all others and are win-win for growth and poverty reduction. Road expenditure has the third largest impact on rural poverty reduction, but only a modest and statistically insignificant impact on agricultural.

      Integrated rural poverty Powerlessness is reflected in the ease with which rural elites act as a net to intercept benefits intended for the poor, in the way the poor are robbed and cheated, and in the inability of poorer people to bargain, especially women, and those who are physically weak, disabled or destitute.   Autonomous vehicles that reduce the number of vehicles on the road. 3D printing provides an opportunity for local production of parts, decreasing the need for delivery trucks. Drone delivery could cut back on road traffic in urban and rural areas. Robotics has the potential to take over manual labor on farms, reducing travel from farm to field.

October A change in the transport sector's current approach to selecting rural road investments is warranted. A proposed approach builds on some of the poverty-focused hybrid methods found in recent rural road appraisals-recognizing that an important share of the benefits to the poor from rural roads cannot be measured in monetary terms.

In the following sections, the paper argues that a change in the transport sector's current approach to rural road investment selection is warranted along the lines described, building on some of the poverty-focused “hybrid” methods found in recent rural road appraisals at Cited by: Reducing poverty through rural road investments: non-monetary benefits This article explores the link between rural road investments and the reduction of poverty.

rect impacts from road investments may have either a positive or negative effect on poverty. To date, it has been difficult to capture empirical evi-dence of these indirect effects in a systematic way. Although it is widely assumed that investment in rural roads reduces poverty, there has been little systematic analysis or evidence of the ways in.

It goes without saying that a serious effort to reduce poverty should integrate labour-based methods to raise local incomes and to provide training for maintenance. Such a programme still only marginally addresses poverty reduction.

Better roads cannot reduce poverty for roads are only used as a means/link for farm produce/ industrial products to reach the consumers. Thus, roads do not contribute in the production process, other than the value of manpower.

In fact where roads are tarmacked, more idlers will be seen loitering on road sides. rural road programme only increased consumption by just %. In comparison, an earlier study by Asher and Novosad () found the PMGSY programme in India increased incomes by 8% and, a study by Fan et al.

() of poverty in rural India, found that rural roads had a relatively large impact, with a benefit cost ratio of three. In a number of the recent studies it was found that rural road investment encouraged structural transformations of villages by facilitating non-farm employment and enabling migration to urban areas.

This paper examines the impacts of rehabilitating rural roads on key welfare indicators such as income and consumption. It aims to complement previous studies which have concentrated mainly on reductions in monetary or time costs needed to access product and factor markets or key public social services.

Rural road investments are found to reduce poverty significantly through higher agricultural production, lower input and transportation costs, and higher agricultural output prices at local village markets.

Rural road development has also led to higher secondary schooling enrollment for boys and girls, as compared to primary school enrollment.Ways to Help Reduce Rural Poverty. Poverty is a term that has been greatly desensitized. The effect of the word is about as mellow as hearing “debt crisis” or “economically disadvantaged,” regarding the United States as a whole.
