IGU2019



Annual Conference of the IGU Commission on Local and Regional Development, June 25 - 28, 2019

The International Geographical Union's Commission on Local and Regional Development provides an international forum for the study of issues related to diverse matters such as local and regional development, reorganization of space, local development in urban and rural spaces, and the role of institutions and agencies in developing and reshaping inhabited spaces. The interests of the Commission are exhibited in developing and developed regions and nations.

The perception and attitudes towards local development may be different in different countries. In some places the local development theme is closely related to rural and non-metropolitan development, in other parts of the world it is related to the establishment and development of new towns, to spatial form of entrepreneurship, or to the evolution of new cores of sophisticated high-tech activities. The Commissionís aim is to amalgamate such debates under one umbrella.
