    The whole economic, social and spiritual life depends on the natural resources, put into value under different forms, depending on the human intelligence and knowledge. The international community is increasingly getting aware of the importance of the natural capital in the creation of a competitive economy, in ensuring the national security and the social justice. In recent years, the economic growth doubled the ecologic impact upon the planet, while the pressure upon the environment grew fast, which led to the emergence of a deficit of natural resources both for the present and the next generations. In this context, the development issue is redefined at global level. The aim of the paper is to identify the necessary measures for the improvement of the management of natural resources having in view the rural area development, as defined and applied through the international framework of action, with obligatory character, under the form of treaties or conventions, or with non-obligatory character, under the form of declarations, resolutions or sets of guidelines and political orientations, institutional measures and viable funding mechanisms. This framework at international level, which was created in time and under a dynamic evolution, considers the rural human settlements as a distinct form of territory anthropization, found in a series of sustainable relations with the physical-geographic components of nature strengthened by traditions, customs and interests, expressed in the landscape by different types of rural communities.
