Rob Lowe to Host an Upcoming "On Demand" Segment on Rural Economic Development

LOS ANGELES (PRWEB) August 28, 2018

Rob Lowe, an accomplished actor and a great philanthropist, will host the next episode of the famous "On Demand" show and the focus will shift to rural economic development. This episode will discuss the various factors that affect rural economic development and how the process can be fast-tracked to help the rural communities enjoy a better life.

Rural economic development centers on improving the overall quality of life and well-being of the people living in remote areas. These areas are often sparsely populated and isolated and sometimes, marginalized. Most of the time, the people lack access to basic life needs such as clean water and food. Although rural development has always centered on the exploitation of land-intensive resources such as forestry and agriculture, increased urbanization and various changes in global production networks have dramatically changed the character of our rural areas.

The focus has now turned to the increasing tourism, manufacturing, recreation, and sustainability awareness. Agriculture is no longer the primary driver of our rural economies. There is the growing need for rural communities to approach development and sustainability from a broader perspective than before. Today, physical infrastructure, education, social infrastructure, and entrepreneurship play a critical role in developing the rural economies. There is also a significant emphasis on locally engineered economic development strategies and ideas. Rural economic development is a broad term that focuses on a wide range of actions that need to be implemented to achieve rural development.

This will be an interesting and highly educative episode of the "On Demand" program that viewers don't want to miss. The experts will provide greater insights into the whole issue of rural economic development and how it can be achieved.
