In the past, many researchers and policymakers have
equated the rural economy with agriculture.
According to this view, rural households would
receive most of their income from the production of
food and export crops. In more recent years, this
view has begun to change. Presently, the awareness
is growing that rural households receive their
income from a portfolio of diverse activities, and
that one of the most important activities relates to
non-farm sector. In Mozambique, the role of the non-
farm sector in contributing to poverty reduction is
not known and seems to have been overlooked in the
present development strategies, while international
experience has shown that rural non-farm sources of
income, mainly from the small-scale rural
enterprises, are crucial in providing productive
employment and earning opportunities for the poor.
This has made some policymakers’ to view the
development of the rural non-farm sector as one way
to alleviate poverty. In this book, the author
discuss the role of rural non-farm sources
of income in alleviating poverty in the Boane
district, Mozambique.
