Rural territory as an object of analysis and management

Anna Revkova


Introduction. Currently, rural areas are an important element of the life of any country, where a powerful economic, natural, demographic and cultural potential is concentrated. Its activation and use largely determines the rate of development of a particular region, and also affects the standard of living of rural residents. Therefore, any country should consider the development of rural areas as a promising step to increase production as agricultural products, but also to the growth of the gross product in general.

Goal. On the basis of the conducted research, propose an author's approach to understanding the concept of "rural territory" as an object of analysis and management.

Method (methodology). To achieve the goal and solve the set tasks, the following research methods were used: abstract and logical (when determining the goal, tasks, formulating conclusions, researching domestic and foreign literary sources, regulatory and legal acts, forming a system of socio-economic development of rural areas).

The results. Based on the generalization of the scientists' research, the author's approach to the concept of "rural territory" is proposed as a territory located outside cities, which includes both rural settlements and mainly areas of agricultural production and rural development with its natural resources, socio-cultural living conditions and population, and which performs social, economic and ecological functions.
