Local development of the Melancias Village due to the transformations of the North of Minas Gerais

<p></p><p>Abstract: This paper discusses local development in relation to modern developmental propositions, specifically in the Northern region of Minas Gerais. Theoretically, discussions were held about the concept of development in peripheral countries and their relationship with local development. Methodologically, oral histories were used. The results show that the development of the region has imposed new logics on local development, presenting, at the same time, the potential for endogenous development in the face of the transformations that have occurred in the region.</p><p></p>
