Abstract. With the orderly promotion of the national poverty alleviation work, the number of rural poor people in China has decreased significantly, but due to the imbalance of regional development, deep poverty areas still exist.The balanced development of rural basic public services (RBPS) is one of the important directions to solve the deep-seated contradictions in poor areas. In this paper, Hechi City of Guangxi Province is taken as the research area, and the multi-dimensional poverty measurement model and RBPS evaluation model are constructed respectively. The collaborative development relationship between RBPS and multi-dimensional poverty reduction in the research area is revealed by coupling coordination degree and GIS spatial analysis method. The results show that the spatial distribution of coupling degree and coupling coordination degree between basic public services and multi-dimensional poverty is unbalanced. Basic public services and multi-dimensional poverty are closely related, and the level of basic public services has a positive impact on multi-dimensional poverty, and the poverty reduction of basic public services is feasible. In order to achieve stable and sustainable poverty eradication, it is necessary to establish a scientific and systematic evaluation system of rural basic public service poverty reduction.
