In the two pairs of the sentences

1.

Many people who live in that area are farmers

Many people living in that area are farmers

and

2.

The man who is standing there is a driver

The man standing there is a driver

the only difference is that the second sentence is a bit shorter, and this is the case of reduced relative clauses when a participle is used instead of a relative pronoun--in your examples, it's who--and the full verb.
