Rural Sustainability Programme – APAC Initiative for Regional Impact (AIRI): Regional Forum II (Sustaining Rural Revitalisation: Innovation and Collaboration)
24th January 2024 (Wednesday)
15:00 - 18:30
Robert B Banks Auditorium, AIT Convention Centre, Bangkok, Thailand

Many governments around the world have now considered rural revitalisation an important strategic policy measure to combat global challenges such as urban-rural divide, climate change, and the degradation of natural resources and cultural heritage. So far, most rural revitalisation efforts have focused on disparate challenges faced by rural communities, including the demographic, socio-economic and environmental ones. A more integrated approach which emphasizes the importance of developing long-term resilience and robustness of local communities in dealing with external shocks and disturbances is key to successful rural revitalisation. This regional forum provides a platform for academics and practitioners to share and discuss how innovation and collaboration can help build robustness and resilience of rural communities. Distinguished keynote speakers from Asia-Pacific, who are experts in the academia, nonprofits, social enterprises, and food conglomerates, will share their insights and perspectives on the topic.
