Every village had a local integrated economic and social system in the past eco-sustainable times. The people in rural areas and their tributary landscapes once were supported by their usefulness to one another. Now that mutual usefulness has been removed, and the people relate to one another increasingly as random particles. The traditional localised rural socio-economic and socio-ecological systems are either dying or decaying due to globalisation, aggressive mega-brand marketing, and changed socio-economic aspitrations of people.
The Rural Economic Survey and Local Economy project is about doing something to act and mitigate the adverse socio-ecological impacts.
