Rural development is a concept centred on the improvement in the quality of life and the economic health of communities living in rural areas. Traditionally, the focus of rural development has been solely on the exploitation of natural resources such as forestry and agriculture. In modern times, with increased urbanization and improved global production networks, the focus has shifted to tourism, recreation and niche manufacturing. However for much of the developing world today, agricultural development remains the most potent weapon to end extreme poverty and boost rural development. It is crucial for economic growth, accounting for nearly 1/3rd of the global gross domestic product. This book studies, analyzes and upholds the pillars of agricultural development and its utmost significance in modern times. It elucidates the concepts and innovative models around prospective developments with respect to rural development. This book, with its detailed analyses and data, will prove immensely beneficial to professionals and students involved in this area at various levels.
