Human Development Report on Rural Development

Country/Territory: 
Poland

Rural Poland compromises over 80 percent of the country's land area and 30 percent of its population. The 2000 Report identifies the growing gap between urban and rural areas through an analysis of regional disparities in economic investment and performance. The Report scrutinizes the agricultural sector of the country, which is at the forefront of negotiations on the Polish accession to the EU, and recommends activating the under-utilized potential of the sector.
