Title
Food systems : new-ruralism vs. new-urbanism
Author
Abstract
There is a growing debate onwhether agricultural land in urban fringes should bemaintained or converted to other uses.While pro-ruralists believe agricultural land conversion can threaten food security and cause rural-urbanmigration, pro-urbanists find it a necessary change for transition from a primitive agricultural-based community to an advanced industrial-based society which has the capacity to create mass productions. New-Ruralists follow an agricultural-based development approach that promotes smallmedium farming and acknowledges rural lifestyle while New-Urbanists give a priority to large industrial-based sectors and encourage urban lifestyle. Given the unlike concerns of different societies, the paper concludes that the approaches might have different priorities in the less developed, developing, and developed world.
