Village without unemployment
Village without unemployment
The year 1396 has been named as "Resistance Economy, Production - Employment", one of the most important components of the resistance economy approach is to strengthen national production capacity. The main base of national production in every country is formed and grows in the countryside. Over the past decades, following some socio-economic changes, villages have not been developed as the main center of production in the country. Irregular migration, water scarcity, and a culture of interest in urbanization are some of the factors that have reduced production capacity in rural areas.
One of the important features in projects related to improving the rural economy is the participation of the local community in the development of the rural development roadmap. To provide synergistic joint capacities to achieve development goals. In fact, it is necessary to focus on the development of the village with the focus on all local activities and actions, even at the national level. Therefore, the feature of "participation" can be the basis of the local development process and provide the opportunity to play an active role for all stakeholders (including the people, civil society and non-governmental organizations and the government).
The second component in improving the rural economy and strengthening the livelihood of rural residents is the issue of "empowerment". Empowerment means increasing the ability, skill and responsible behavior of people in the local community, so that the limited facilities and assets of the rural community through a participatory approach, lead to an impact on the lives of people in the community. Therefore, empowering the local community has a key and fundamental role in attracting participation, promoting social capital, identifying and defining local businesses and ultimately realizing the development of the local economy. Empowerment includes skills and vocational training for specific business activities, management skills such as how to develop the market or how to attend specialized exhibitions or direct sales, increase the ability to conduct business negotiations and manage and control turnover and in general how And the amount of access to financial resources, information and knowledge.
It is expected that through the two components of attracting maximum participation and empowering people in the local community, it will be possible to actively build the future of the rural community based on a real understanding of competitive and sustainable capacities and advantages.
