Conference details

The UN has recently highlighted the quickening global trend of urbanization, forecasting that this will accelerate further as developing nations become increasingly urban. This  will put extra pressure on urban resources and communities, but will also exacerbate the growing divide between urban and rural areas, in terms of economic and social development. Rural regions are already experiencing fundamental challenges to their ways of life and social fabric, as traditional land-based occupations are in decline and younger and better educated rural residents migrate to cities for greater work, social and cultural opportunities.
