Building Sustainable, Resilient and Thriving Rural Places

Responding to Short and Long-term Shocks: Building more Resilient Rural Places

Sep 28, 2022 | 1:45 PM - 3:30 PM



The COVID-19 crisis and the recent war in Ukraine have brought new challenges to rural places, in particular related to food and energy security. In addition, rural places must also address structural transformations brought by globalisation, urbanisation, ageing, migration, population decline, the production revolution, digitalisation climate change and other transformative trends, such as remote working. This session will identify policies that can help jump-start a more equitable and diverse landscape of resilient rural economies to enable them to thrive and better respond to short and long-term shocks.
