Recognizing new trends in Rural Development, we consider interesting topics such as international cooperation in rural development, rural-urban migration trends, rural policies, different approaches for rural project implementation, practical intervention in rural areas, and so on. We strongly believe in the significance insights the speakers can give in these regards and we are open to hear from their ideas for this Conference.


The topic will discussed and explored by Prof Maria del mar Delgado from Spain, Prof. Jan Douwe Van Der Ploeg from The Netherlands and Prof. K. R. Ashok from India who have already confirmed their assistance as speakers at the event! There are also some other speakers to confirm.

Moreover, as the IMRD Association wants to serve as a platform to promote communication and exchange among former IMRD alumni, as well as in between alumni, current students and the IMRD consortium, this is a great opportunity to starting bonding! Meeting IMRD friends, make new ones and celebrate together the end and beginning of another cycle for all of us!!
