Non-metropolitan regions across the Western world face a number of complex developmental problems, including population decline, dependence on a narrow range of industries, outdated infrastructure and, often, a weakened political position. Via a comparative analysis of regional development issues in Australia and Canada, the unit explores the factors underlying uneven regional development and, in doing so, teaches a range of practical diagnostic skills and techniques that can be applied by governments and non-government organisations in order to foster successful and sustainable local and regional development.
