Development of complex approach to defining the notion “sustainable development of rural territories”

Oleg Gorb



Abstract

The existing scientific approaches (territorial, production, social, and complex) as to defining the essence of the notion “rural territories” have been considered in the article. The author’s understanding of this notion has been expressed. The research of the social approach is based on defining the rural territory as to its population. The considered production approach as to defining the essence of the rural territory has revealed the divergence between the existing practice and the theoretical model. Taking into account the prospective changes in the kinds of rural territories because of global urbanization and the creation of suburban areas, the expediency of using the system methodology for the scientific investigation of rural territorial formations has been substantiated. Such methodology helps to give not only the internal characteristics of the object, but is manifested through mutual relations with other objects.
