Enhancing Rural Innovation Today for a Better Tomorrow

Invitation

Greetings!!!

Rural Development is a package of policy and interventions by government and organizations through projects and programmes that aim to foster socio-economic change and human development in rural areas. It is a key strategy to reduce poverty, unemployment and to improve infrastructure in rural areas in any country. Rural development is also about changing people’s lives; enabling people in rural areas to take control of their destinies, by enjoying the freedom and dignity. Rural development is not simply about agriculture, but covers a broad field that embraces agrarian transformation; the leveraging of natural resources and effective land reform; the deployment of adequate infrastructure, and the strength of effective partnerships into a cohesive force to end hunger, poverty and unemployment. Rural development is a triangle of dimensions that include; package of policy of government involving politics of interests, individuals and organizations with profound implications for both thinking and action..

A number of global shifts are creating more complex, dynamic and challenging environment for rural transformation. Countries need to take specific actions and make specific policy choices, interventions and investments to enable rural people to seize the opportunities and deal with the challenges that come with transformation processes. Rural development initiatives have undergone a series of shifts in emphases, approaches and funding schemes in many countries.

Hence a conference is organized to leverage experiences, skills and the collective experiences of participants and help to create space for the integration of indigenous knowledge along with available assets and resources to address the challenges of rural transformation.

The conference is aimed at providing interdisciplinary technical sessions with presentations on new ideas for rural development processes in the context of innovations, social progress and welfare programmes. The theme of the conference “Enhancing Rural Innovation Today for a Better Tomorrow” implies a discussion on how innovation happens in a wide range of issues of social and economic development of rural areas

I am privileged to invite you to share your research and experiences in rural development and related topics at “International Conference on Rural Development, Social Dynamics and Welfare” to be held during December 04-05, 2019 at Hyderabad, India.
