IED CPD Online: Delivering rural economic growth

03 Feb 2022 - Online via Zoom 2-3.30pm

Important - this is a series of 3 webinars each running for 90 minutes on the 3rd, 4th and 7th February 2022.

This CPD module is intended to allow delegates to explore the key characteristics of rural economies and consider the most appropriate strategy they might follow in stimulating rural economic growth. The course considers the definition of rural economies, the position of different rural settings across the UK and several case study examples. The course is run in a participative manner and is aimed at creating a practical experience with applicability to all economic development practitioners both from the course learning, examples of good and poor practice and the interaction with other delegates.

Topics covered – through the contemporary lens of the impact of the coronavirus pandemic

• How rural am I?– the rural_urban classification and how to use it

• Common characteristics of rural economies and tools for analysis

• Rural growth theories and their real life application

• Market failure and the role of social enterprise

• Key resources for rural growth

• The nirvana of sustainable rural places and the trade offs involved

Led by Ivan Annibal it will also feature cameos showcasing practical aspects of the above agenda by a number of colleagues working directly in rural economic development
