The OECD 9th Rural Development Policy Conference will be held on 23-25 October, 2013 in Bologna, Italy. The conference will launch the report “Rural-Urban partnerships: an integrated approach to economic development”, which is the result of the RURBAN project in collaboration with the European Commission. The conference will consist of key note addresses, plenary sessions and pre-conference workshops. There will be ample scope for open discussion of the key themes both during the conference sessions and at less formal events.
Full details will be available shortly with practical arrangements and registration formalities. In the meantime, please contact Betty-Ann Bryce or Lucero Perez at Bologna-Ruralconference@oecd.org if you have any questions or would like further information.
