About the International Conferences – India

 

The rapid transformations of rural areas in Brazil, China, India and South Africa, the world’s main emergent economies, pose a challenge and an opportunity for society’s sustainability. More than 250 representatives from different governments, academic institutions, private corporations and the civil society gathered to discuss innovative approaches that will help us tackle the puzzles to come at the International Conference “Dynamics of Rural Transformation in Emerging Economies”, held from April 14th through 16th in New Delhi, India.
The dynamics of rural transformation such as the gap in human development, tensions between production and the environment, urban-rural social and economic distance, and regional inequity and unbalance are caused not only by domestic factors, but also by international tendencies. In many cases, these dynamics affect the rural areas of India, China, Brazil and South Africa, home to 25% of the world’s population and where most of the global natural resources are located. Given that globalization is an important issue to consider, changes applied in one determined rural economy have repercussions not only at a national level but also in the rest of the world.New, innovative approaches have been applied in countries with emerging economies to deal with these challenges. Even though each one adapts to their specific context, together they can establish a new paradigm for rural development through shared learning. There is a need to explore new approaches and strategies to deal with the challenges of the rural world and maximize the opportunities that both the rural regions and their people have to offer.

 

The Conference, among other things, encouraged the exchange of South-on-South lessons and contributed to form new associations and alliances in order to ensure the continuity of the dialogue about the main challenges and opportunities of rural development.
