(29 November 2019) - “La ciudad agropolitana. La aldea cosmopolita” (The agripolitan city, the cosmopolitan village) is the latest book by Jaime Izquierdo Vallina, a long-time expert in rural development. Yves Champetier (AEIDL) wrote one of the book’s forewords.
Throughout his career, Jaime has written numerous books on urban-rural issues, nature conservation, and new perspectives for approaching rural areas.
Over the years, he has deepened his work, refined his ideas and now offers us a vast panorama of what the world of tomorrow could be and what our world should be. New rural-urban interrelationships need to be developed to meet today’s challenges, such as climate change and the alarming erosion of biodiversity.
“La ciudad agropolitana. La aldea cosmopolita” is a scholarly overview, combining historical analysis, multiple intellectual references and proposals for action.
