Rural Development, Community, Participation, Social Development



Rural development is progressively seen as an important for solution for expanding the financial viability of large areas, stimulating social recovery and enhancing the life style of rural groups. Many countries try to eliminate rural neediness and to have substantial potential in attracting visitors and social development looking for new progress. This paper argues that the social event of sustainable activities and attractions, and the development of rural life, empowers co-operation and organizations between groups and government. Meaningful community participation, together with public sector support, presents opportunities for the development of small-scale original sustainable and community projects in less developed areas. This paper interrogates the development of rural routes in Lebanon and highlights factors critical to its success.
