The Rural Geography Specialty Group promotes research and education related to contemporary rural landscapes, societies, and economies in the developed and developing world. Specialty group members conduct research across an array of topics, including agriculture; land use; environmental governance; population; rural health, crime, and poverty; food systems; indigenous peoples; and rural restructuring processes.

As an official Commission of the IGU, CSRS seeks to promote research related to the social, economic, agricultural and non-agricultural rural systems and to foster research that incorporates the notion of the inter-relatedness of structures and processes in rural systems, through a variety of linked spatial scales - international, national, regional, local and individual scales.
