Desertification: measuring population decline in rural Ireland


, : Desertification: measuring population decline in rural Ireland. Rural realities: trends and choices Proceedings of the 35th Seminar of the European Association of Agricultural Economists, Aberdeen, Scotland, 27-29 June 1994: 15-34

Population loss is one aspect of the process of desertification currently taking place in peripheral rural areas. It is at once a cause and a consequence of other dimensions of desertification such as the closure of service facilities and the abandonment of agricultural land. Patterns and processes of rural population loss merit attention not just as localized phenomena but with a view to understanding their place within broader national trends.
