RuLIS - Rural Livelihoods Information System

Note to the user

In order to ensure the greatest accuracy to the information provided, the Rural Livelihoods Information System (RuLIS) is undergoing further data revision and testing

The FAO Statistics Division, the World Bank and IFAD have joined forces to build RuLIS, as a tool to support policies for reducing rural poverty. Information on agricultural income and rural livelihoods is crucial for the formulation of evidence-based development policies.
