Abstract

Purpose– This research purpose was to identify the critical factors that determine the development of rural entrepreneurship in transition countries. Design/methodology/approach – The research derived from secondary data in an effort to show how the processes associated with entrepreneurship may transition disadvantaged countries into market economies. The research is especially focused on women in rural areas because female farmers are the most at risk of climate change. Findings – The women are more dependent on agriculture and water resource changes than men because of their low socio-economic, legal status, and lack of knowledge on how to approach environmental disasters, use appropriate research methods and instruments to collect data, and find available financial resources. Hence, the female human capital is less involved in social and economic strategies than men to approach climate change. The authors believe the new approach may establish productive green and market economies, as well as form new bilateral relations. Research limitations/implications – Based on this research, successful adaptation depends on first, understanding the holistic nature of the problem, and then creating and implementing a vision that aims to meet business and environmental challenges. Practical implications – This paper can encourage women farmers to take leadership roles within rural entrepreneurship development in transition countries. Originality/Value – Our proposals have a special value because they offer a variety of measures that can be taken with an aim to support development of rural entrepreneurship and support women in rural areas.
