MASTER PLAN /
Ba Yi Agricultural
Rural development has traditionally focused on the exploitation of natural resources such as agriculture, forestry and mining. However, changes in economic drivers and increased urbanization have changed the character of rural areas in recent times. The need for rural communities to approach development from a wider perspective has created more focus on a broad range of development goals rather than merely creating incentive for agricultural or resource based businesses.
The agricultural sector comprises production activities, but also includes the transport and processing of food, fibre, timber and foliage. Hence this project’s planning provided access to water infrastructure and transport infrastructure for the efficient movement of commodities from farms to processing facilities and markets.
