Agricultural dynamics in areas under urban influence in south-east asia (vietnam, cambodia) : competition over resources and creation of new markets around secondary cities

Objective

The project focuses on one of the major challenges for south-East Asian countries today rapid urban growth. This phenomenon, which can compromise fair and sustainable access to natural resources, makes it necessary to re-think territorial planning policies based on an updated vision of the relationships between capital cities, secondary centres and rural areas. City-country relations, with their antagonisms and complementarities, are crucial for territorial planning policies and the choice of a single or multiple urban model. The consequences for agriculture call for wider reflection on the coordination of public policies for rural development and territorial planning. Starting from in-depth knowledge of the situation in Vietnam and Cambodia, the project will contribute to defining policies on changes in agricultural areas under urban influence in the optic of balanced and sustainable development .
