Organizers: RURAL RESEARCH AND PLANNING GROUP (RRPG)
We are facing the challenge of uncertainty of economic growth, increased globalization process, political conflicts and climate change that the questions of sustainability, and inclusivity of development becoming more pressing. The new global development agenda and Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) also call for more commitment for inclusive development. However, given the need to foster economic growth and competitiveness, concentration of development in core regions seems to be a common strategy adopted by many governments in developing countries, the outcome would further increase the development gap in rural areas.
In the context of the various challenges facing the world today we would like to call upon scholars and practitioners to look into how rural development could incorporate inclusive and sustainable communities that synergize and balance between rural and urban areas as well as achieving sustainable development, poverty eradication and resilient community.
