A workshop on land resources management for rural and urban development projects was held in Nay Pyi Taw, yesterday. President U Thein Sein gave a speech, saying that the government will be able to settle landless people on newly-developed plots in accordance with urban and rural development plans after identifying the real landless people. Granting land to landless people is an important task in the process of socio-economic development and poverty. Regarding some of the main challenges in villages and towns, the President highlighted shortage of drinking water, lack of proper drainage and traffic congestions due to population increase, influx of migrant workers and increase of squatters along roads and railway lines. In conclusion, he urged the participants to invite the public to help draft rural and urban development plans and to adopt systematic measures for land use in accordance with policies, laws, rules and regulations. At the meeting, Vice president U Nyan Tun also said that land resources management should be more transparent and link social and environmental issues, solves land disputes and set up a common goal for land-use. The land resources management should be taken into consideration of local requirements, the values of land alternative ways of land use in order to develop an effective system. The economic experts and officials from various ministries also discussed socio-economic development, environmental conservation and land-related cases.

http://www.fao.org/about/what-we-do/so3/en/ Seventy-five percent of the world’s poorest people live in rural areas. The agricultural sector, therefore has a key role to play in poverty reduction and improving rural lives. Maya Takagi, Deputy Leader of the FAO Strategic Programme on Rural Poverty Reduction, together with Ana Paula De La O Campos, Programme Adviser explain the importance of promoting inclusive economic growth; long-term support to the rural poor; social protection; empowerment of rural women; decent rural employment; equitable access to land and resources; and strengthening rural institutions are key in creating new income generating opportunities. They describe the FAO policy work, including key policy messages, to achieve this. This video forms part of a series of policy and governance videos being produced by FAO in 2016.

The Western Balkan countries face the phenomena of outmigration and rural depopulation, which are severe problems in the whole region. The regional project "Rural Development through Integrated Forest and Water Resources Management" (LEIWW),among the others, aims to illustrate alternative ways of income generation in rural areas and create tangible future perspectives for returnees, as well as potential migrants. The tailor-made qualification measures for cooks, bakers, bartenders, barista and waiters were offered to approximately 200 young trainees from WB countries. The offered qualification measures should increase chances of trainees for employment in the tourism sector, while at the same time answering to the increased demand of the private sector for certain professions. In addition, the provided training measures for the population across the borders should contribute to ensuring same/similar standards in the provision of tourism services in the cross border tourist destinations.

Natural resources are essential to food production, enhanced rural development and sustainable livelihoods. Conflicts and competition over access to, and the use of these resources are likely to increase in many regions and will be exacerbated by changing growing conditions, increased water scarcity, loss of biodiversity, extreme weather events and other effects of climate change. The sustainable management of natural resources for the benefit of present and future generations requires addressing key aspects of natural resources and their governance across all sectors. This video comments on FAO's work to support to smallholders in developping sustainable management systems that support development while conserving resources for future generations, presented at the 2012 FAO Committee on Agriculture exhibits on Fighting hunger through sustainable smallholder agriculture.

Rural development transcends the availability of infrastructure, technology, and industrialization to also encompass the enviro-cultural and psycho-social needs of its inhabitants. The necessity for greater and deliberate efforts targeting all aspects of development of these rural areas is required to sustain growth. The The Handbook of Research on Rural Sociology and Community Mobilization for Sustainable Growth is an essential reference source investigating how global trends, state policies, and grassroots movements affect contemporary rural areas in both developed and developing countries. Featuring research on topics such as gender and rural development, micro-financing, and water resource management, this book is ideally designed for government officials, policy makers, professionals, researchers, and students seeking coverage on the sustainable development of rural areas. ___________ Topics Covered: • Gender and Rural Development • Land Policy and Administration • Land Resources Management • Micro-Financing • Organic Food Production • Private Sector Development • Rural Education • Sanitation and Hygiene • Sustainable Development • Water Resources Management

Rural households in Zambia often face difficult trade-offs in decision-making about natural resources (such as land, forests, wildlife, rivers) as they seek to balance the conflicting demands of managing the surrounding environment with the economic survival of their families. To support households in facing these trade-offs, a United Nations Development Programme (UNDP)-supported project (locally known as the GEF 5 project) is working through the Forestry Department and the Department of National Parks and Wildlife to help rural households improve their ability to use natural resources more productively, and to diversify their income sources away from dependence upon natural resources alone - using sustainable forestry and land management practices. The project is being funded by the Global Environment Facility(GEF). Source: ZNBC TV1 news.

The scarcity of water around the world is forcing the water authorities to use water resources which are scattered in remote areas with low accessibility and impossible permanent wire connections. On the other hand, the water resources are generally in long distances between each other and all of them are very far from the water consumption area. This constrains the administrative organizations to spend human and fund resources for controlling, monitoring and maintaining the installations with poor results, since no constant supervision can be achieved. The technological combination of wireless broadband networks (wifi), modern systems of signal control and data acquisition, computers/software and telematics can provide an excellent solution for this problem. In this video the process of planning and installation of a system, for the telematic control and management of eleven wells and storage installations and distribution process for the Municipality of Thira (Fira, Santorini, Greece) is presented. The installation is checking the pumping stations, the levels of water tanks as well as qualitative data of the water supplies, from distance through a wireless network. The system interacts automatically or manually with the installations and to preset points, giving complete records of the data and alarms to any malfunction or oncoming breakdown. The proposed solution is expandable regarding the installations in control and the signals which are collected and checked. The equipment which is used is simple keeping the budget of the installation low. However, the equipment has been tested for enough period of time and the proposed solution has been proved to be reliable and reasonably low-cost for the water resources management. The narration in this video is in Greek Language. The video is not complete... The 10 out of 12 minutes of the duration of the video is presented due to YouTube 10 minutes restriction.
