Conference on Rural Economic Transformation: Pathways to Inclusive and Sustainable Prosperity in Post-COVID-19 Asia

17 November 2021 to 19 November 2021

Day 1: 09:00-13:00 Tokyo time
Day 2: 09:00-12:50 Tokyo time
Day 3: 13:00-18:30 Tokyo time

Decades of strong growth in Asia and the Pacific may help economies in the region recover more swiftly from the COVID-19 pandemic, but uneven recovery threatens to undermine hard-won poverty reduction and will require new ways to achieve inclusive and sustainable prosperity after the pandemic. This is particularly true for rural localities where economic opportunities, aspirations, and policy support remain lacking.

This ADBI conference will feature new research on advancing post-COVID-19 rural economic transformation in Asia. It will focus on related drivers, opportunities, challenges, and impacts.

Objectives

  • Spotlight contemporary analyses on improving the well-being of Asia’s rural households following the COVID-19 pandemic
  • Distill policy lessons for boosting rural transformation in the region
