The rural area, in its multiple diversity, is subject to complex challenges coming from the macroeconomic and macrosocial processes: a) demographic and social challenges from the territorial point of view, segregation of vulnerable groups – the diminution in number of the rural population and the strong demographic ageing on the rise have an impact upon rural cohesion starting from the type of public services, their supply and ending up with the rural labour market; b) climate change challenges – the environmental risks are felt in the territory at different degrees, and vulnerabilization is regionally selective; c) challenges in relation to the loss of biodiversity, through the vulnerabilization of the natural, landscape and cultural patrimony – the regional character of the rural area can be so drastically modified that the territorial identity is lost.
