Abstract

This paper reflects on the discussions of an early career researcher colloquium regarding sustaining the world’s rural populations. It provides a background note on rural sustainability through summarising the contribution of Earth summits and poverty eradication targets to improving rural livelihoods. There is pressure on our planet to ensure a sustainable future and four emergent themes were noted as essential considerations for future sustainability: climate change; food security; water security; and adaptation and governance. The paper concludes by suggesting
that a more integrated multi-institutional framework is required to provide a solid platform for conducting sustainability research.
