Rural Development

Peter Gutkind maintains that a “back to the land” movement does not hold any real answers to the problems, employment and otherwise, of the less developed countries. However, this is a minority view because it is more widely felt that the problem of employment in general, and of youth employment in particular, must to a large extent be solved in the rural areas as it is here that the great majority of the population of the less developed countries well and try to make a living for themselves. It should be remembered, though, that not all the rural population are engaged in agriculture and that non-agricultural rural occupations are important and must also be considered.
