Rural development for inclusive growth and a balanced settlement of the population

Achieving sustainable development is a challenge that is not limited by geography, demography or even national status. Joblessness, poverty, hunger, illness and conflict, among many, are manifestations of unmet goals and exist everywhere. But even as populations concentrate in growing cities, development challenges are particularly acute in rural communities and smaller urban settings. It follows that realizing the vision set in the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development requires solutions tailored specifically for the challenges of rural communities. This chapter will examine the role of rural development in achieving inclusive economic growth and will explore the barriers to and solutions for unlocking the potential of the rural sector.
