Agricultural Productivity, Poverty and Export Potential in Talas Oblast of Kyrgyzstan
Poverty in Kyrgyzstan has been an important and persistent problem since independence in the 1990s. Despite a decrease in poverty rates in the last decade, rates continue to be high. Remote rural areas have lower potential for economic growth, and demonstrate higher and more volatile levels of poverty that are sensitive to external negative factors. This lecture will present findings from research on the determinants of rural poverty in the remote area of Talas oblast of Kyrgyzstan. The research focused on the main factors determining rural poverty to improve the theoretical basis of agricultural research in the region, and produce practical recommendations for growth in the sector. The research found a statistically significant link between poverty and production efficiency at the household level. The presentation will also include an overview of rural production, the results of alternative poverty measurement in the region, and the case for the new export potential of Talas beans, which has developed in recent years.
