Rural development policy is one important component of the Common Agricultural Policy (CAP) of the European Community. This policy encourages sustainable development in rural areas to address issues of economic, social and environmental. LEADER program is one of the rural development approach very innovative and is considered one of the successful test of the rural development approach in the region.
It has become a habit that following completion of a research programme, a review
or assessment is performed. Partly to justify the money and efforts that went into the
programme and partly to identify novel directions for new programmes. Following
this tradition, the sponsor of the International Cooperation research programme
(DLO-IC), the Dutch Ministry of Agriculture, Nature and Food Quality (LNV),
asked a small group of scientists to draw lessons from its recently completed North-
Seventy-five percent of the world’s poor live in rural areas and most are involved in farming. In the 21st century, agriculture remains fundamental to economic growth, poverty alleviation, and environmental sustainability. The World Bank’s Agriculture and Rural Development publication series presents recent analyses of issues that affect agriculture’s role as a source of economic development, rural livelihoods, and environmental services.

Her publications during the last five years, include From a Tier to a Sphere: Local Government in the New South African Constitutional Order (co-edited with Maxine Reitzes, published by EISA and Heinemann Press, 2000); Rural Development Framework, for the Free State Provincial Government; and A Pathway to Sustainability: Local Agenda 21 in South Africa (co-edited with Penny Urquhart, for the Department of Environmental Affairs, 2001).
The objective of this program is to improve Vietnam’s capacity for teaching and conducting research in modern horticultural crop production with a particular focus on vegetables. This should enhance the ability of Vietnam to promote rural development in these industries and improve the efficiency of and quality of vegetable production. The project aims to achieve this by:
Renewable energy is shifting from the fringe to the mainstream of sustainable
development. Past donor efforts achieved modest results but often were not
sustained or replicated, which leads now to greater market orientation. Markets for
rural household lighting with solar home systems, biogas, and small hydro power have
expanded through rural entrepreneurship, government programs, and donor assistance,
serving millions of households. Applications in agriculture, small industry, and social
services are emerging. Public programs resulted in 220 million improved biomass cook
The Rural Development Home Loan is a 30 year fixed rate loan available for low to moderate income families who are looking to buy, build, improve, repair, or rehabilitate homes in rural areas. If a buyer has had ownership of a primary residence in the last three years, they are not eligible for the program. To qualify for a Rural Development loan buyers must meet the MSHDA (Michigan State Housing Development Authority) sales price, income limit, and first time home buyer eligibility guidelines. All adult members of the new home must apply jointly for the loan. The Rural Development loan...
The Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development has entrusted the Vietnam Forestry Science Institute with research into and development of “Effective and sustainable planting of production forests in the Northern mountainous region”. This paper provides some initial results from surveys on the marketing of products from such forests in the Northern

The Mekong River Delta (MD) in Vietnam has an area of 4 million hectares. The economical production in this region is highly dependent on water from the river and canal system. More than two-third of 17 million inhabitants of the MD live in rural areas and depend totally on the water resources for rice, upland crop irrigation, aquaculture of fish and shrimp, domestic drinking and industrial water supply and for transportation on rivers and canals
Rural water supply and sanitation is one of major programs for rural development applied not only in Vietnam but also in other developing countries. However, due to poor income and low knowledge conditions, the numbers of farmers achieve this are not so high. Currently, there is a little documentation in Vietnamese concerning toilet design have been found in bookstores and libraries although this is a real need, special for rural areas. For this purpose, a rural toilet design manual was just written in the College of Technology (CoT), CanTho University (CTU).
Meeting the challenge of attaining overall development has for a long time been the
preoccupation of all nations of the world. Because of the multi-faceted and allencompassing
nature of ‘development’, even the most advanced nations of the world
today are battling with many ‘developmental’ challenges. Suffice it to agree with the
notion that development is a process and not a destination.
Rural water supply and sanitation is one of major programs for rural development applied not only in Vietnam but also in other developing countries. However, due to poor income and low knowledge conditions, the numbers of farmers achieve this are not so high.
This report is ostensibly about land quality indicators (LQIs). However, anyone who reads it will find a useful compilation of advice, experience and opinion on why land quality information is important for sustainable development and how it can be used more effectively for planning and decision making. But the report also poses as many questions as it answers, which in itself reflects the diversity of viewpoints on indicators.
Today, in a world that is capable of producing enough food to supply an
adequate diet for all, hundreds of millions of people go hungry. Chronic
undernutrition persists, mainly among rural people in poor developing countries, most
of which depend heavily on agriculture for their livelihood. So long as that is the case,
eliminating hunger will require concerted efforts to speed up agricultural and rural
development, including agro-industry for value addition.
Natural Resources and Economic Development explores a key para-
dox: why is natural resource exploitation not yielding greater benefits
to the poor economies of Africa, Asia and Latin America?
Part One examines this paradox both through a historical review of
resource use and development and through examining current theories
that explain the under-performance of today’s resource-abundant
economies, and proposes a frontier expansion hypothesis as an alter-
