Challenges of Delivering Regional and Remote Human Services and Supports

Research output: Chapter in Book/Conference paperEntry for encyclopedia/dictionarypeer-review


Despite the radical increase in the urbanisation of many regions of the world, and the subsequent concentration of employment opportunities within these metropolises, a significant proportion of the world’s population still resides in regional and remote areas. Estimates derived from the United Nations Population Division’s World Urbanization Prospects report estimates that approximately 44 per cent of the world’s population live in these areas (United Nations, 2019). Furthermore, deficiencies demonstrated by key welfare indicators have been identified repeatedly in regional and remote communities—regardless of the relative wealth of the nation in question.
