FSN Impacts of Urbanization and Rural Transformation on Lower Income Groups - Morning Session

Red Room (FAO Headquarters)
Start: 10:00  Rome time

Urbanization and rural transformation present both challenges and opportunities for urban and rural areas alike. The transformation of rural areas stimulated by interactions with urban centers can deliver positive impacts in terms of sustainability, as well as in terms of access to services and higher incomes.

This transformation, however, can also result in certain areas being left behind and in creating pockets of poverty and obliging people to escape from their areas of origin in search of better living conditions.

Topics: Rural or agricultural development
