Große Teile der Bevölkerung in den Entwicklungsländern sind bis heute weitgehend vom wirtschaftlichen Wachstum in ihren Ländern ausgeklammert worden - der 'trickle-down'-Effekt1 hat nicht auf sie durchgeschlagen. Im Weltentwicklungsbericht 1990 wurde - bezogen auf das Jahr 1985 - von 1,115 Mrd. Menschen in den Entwicklungsländern ausgegangen, die absolut arm waren; das entspricht ungefähr einem Drittel der Gesamtbevölkerung dieser Länder. Man kann davon ausgehen, daß es in den Entwicklungsländern derzeit ca. 1,2 Mrd. absolut armer Menschen gibt, von denen ca. 80 % in ländlichen Gebieten leben. --
