    Many Asian countries have experienced rapid economic growth over the past few decades, and we are in a fast-moving society. As a result, well-balanced development between urban and rural areas is not achieved, that is, so many social, environmental, and economic issues can be found in these countries. Especially, rural areas are facing severe issues which can be obstacles to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) setting the goals by 2030.

    This international symposium is organized by the Association of Rural Planning, Japan and is held for considering Asian rural future in 2030. Active researchers from Asian countries are going to share what is currently going on around/in the rural area of their countries, mentioning issues which should be solved for the future. In addition to that, this symposium will discuss a decade of ambitious actions for “the Asian Rural Future 2030”.
