Rural development

The concept of sustainable development is interpreted in many different ways, but its vital perspective towards development is to balance different, and often competing, needs against recognition of the environmental, social and economic limitations as a society. The ability of an economy to support a defined level of economic production indefinitely is Economic sustainability.  

Rural areas have undergone fundamental social, economic and technical alteration in the last few decades as a result of ongoing and new changes including demographic and environmental policy and institutional landscape. AFBI Economics work is focused in bringing balanced sustainability in rural areas of Northern Ireland. AFBI research concentrate on projects improving economic-wellbeing of people living in rural areas.
