Keywords: regional development | rural development | regional policy

The paper treats the potential of incorporation of the rural development into the planning framework of regulation of a more uniform regional development. The initial assumption is that the regional, „medium“ level of management is necessary for a legitimate management of public business and that the problems of development of rural areas can be adequately regulated within the regional development policy through an integrated planning approach starting from the paradigm of sustainable development. The basic assumption, worked out in detail in the paper, is that the activities related to the rural development are operationally defined and realized in the framework of the regional policy, given that the rural areas are one of the resources of the given region, its potential or limitation, and thus actively participate in the process of development of a region and in reactivation of its developmental potentials.
