Rural Futures PDF Summary

Rural Futures: 21st Century Transformation for the NaturenomicsTM Future offers new perspectives on reconciling human and biodiversity needs for a movement toward more holistic sustainable development, where environmental concerns are centered and tackled head-on, rather than as an incidental concern in addition to core development concerns with improving human development indicators. Through a rich body of global case studies focusing on rural communities, it presents practical examples past and present for practitioners and researchers to learn from, adapt to their individual contexts, and implement. Additionally, the theoretical frameworks offer recommendations for redesigning policy, reshaping action in the field, and shining a light on the need for new areas of research that work with local/indigenous communities to integrate ecology and economy in rural spaces. The book is divided into thematic sections, expanding in scope and building on each other. Each thematic section includes one chapter dedicated to theoretical explorations, two or three chapters focusing on practical challenges and opportunities for action, and at least one case study. Utilizing this combination of theory and practice, Rural Futures explores how social and ecological factors intersect in the field and how they impact results for rural communities impacted by deforestation. Offers new perspectives on how ecology and economy can be integrated at a local level Utilizes case studies to provide insight into challenges and issues in the field, as well as critical moments and keys to successful participatory action Presents tangible recommendations for action at both a community and policy level across disciplines for building resilience and mitigating challenges posed by climate change and environmental destruction
