It was thought that the carried out structural adjustment programmes, according to Neo-Liberal Policies after 1980’s, would lead the development in rural regions. However, it could be seen that the carried out agricultural policies, especially in rural areas both in agrarian and nonagrarian economies, could not achieve the expected development, contrary they caused poverty. About the poverty between rural and urban areas it could be said that the gap increased against rural areas. Focusing on relative poverty the differences between rural and urban areas is emphasized in formal information and in finished studies related to such theme. This study targets to discuss the dimensions of the effect of structural adjustment programmes and agricultural policies on rural poverty.
