Abstract

Rural areas represent great potential for economic growth and prosperity in Serbia. In this paper, we focus on the mountain area region, which is by Rural Development Strategy declared to be resource oriented. Given that human resources generate greatest competitive advantage in modern developed economies, the emphasis is placed on indicators that describe current state of human capital. They include almost all demographic indicators as well as the educational structure of population. We have revealed certain trends in target population, and have given an overview of potential activities necessary to improve current situation. The main idea is that improvement of human capital in mountain areas can reduce migrations to urban areas and weaken their negative effects. That can be achieved through education of population which should result with improved living standards and better utilisation of natural resources.
