Workshop on Development of Rural Economies through Smart Villages

The smart village concept is a transformative approach that leverages digital infrastructure and innovations to enhance the quality of life and economic opportunities in rural communities. It contributes to addressing urgent needs such as enhancing economic opportunities and preventing urban migration by providing sustainable, innovative solutions for agriculture, energy, healthcare, and education.

The adoption of smart villages is crucial for Asia-Pacific countries due to the significant portion of their populations residing in rural areas, often facing challenges such as geographic isolation, inadequate infrastructure, and limited access to services. However, challenges to adoption include a lack of policies, affordable connectivity, digital literacy, and sustainable models for service delivery.

This workshop will explore the smart village concept, showcase best practices from successful smart village implementation, and discuss a possible demonstration project in APO members.
