How can policies raise well-being in rural areas?
The 12th OECD Rural Development Conference
will tackle this central question by examining the multiple aspects of rural wellbeing, including role of innovation and digitalisation in revitalising rural communities and making them attractive for business and residents alongside strategies to deliver quality public services and to help rural regions transition to a low carbon economy.
The conference will identify best practices and build comparative knowledge on how rural policies contribute to national competitiveness and global agendas such as the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). It will engage high-level policy makers from OECD member and partner countries, policy practitioners from national and subnational level, representatives from the private sector and international experts.
