Fatemeh Abdollahi, Zahra Atash Sokhan, Majid Ghaheri
The purpose of this paper is to examine the rural management developments in the country. The rise in urbanization and its problems, such as informal housing, unemployment and pollution propose the living in rural areas as a desirable option. However, sustainable rural development requires institutionalized and efficient rural management with features such as sustainable organizational resourcesand social participation. Participatory development is an approach that focuses on planners during the planning "by the people and for the people". Self-sufficient village office establishment in the village and rapid expansion of them from early 2001 was the latest development for organizing rural management. However, the persistence of structural problems such as lack of human capital, centralized bureaucracy system and lack of sustainable financial resources are challenges that if to beignored, they can act as barriers to rural management.
