The ROBUST Policy Hub has been created in an attempt to draw together in one place a number of key materials relating to a long-standing and ongoing series of policy debates with a bearing on rural-urban linkages. The Hub itself is iterative and evolving. It will look to reflect and capture policy developments by bringing together key documentation accompanied by brief explanations and commentary.
Its content has been arranged around the schema illustrated below.
Although we have used this categorisation system, it should not be inferred that we see these elements as being other than part of a much larger - and interconnected - complex whole. Rather like rural-urban linkages themselves, this whole subject area is made up of interconnected and interdependent elements.
