This chapter argues that rural refugee resettlement and its success were not limited to allocation of a plot and at best a house to each refugee family, but it was related to the general improvement of conditions in the countryside of Macedonia. This goal made necessary a number of infrastructural works which included the organization of health services in the countryside, as well as the execution of irrigation and drainage works in marshlands, the construction of roads, etc. Health services, reclamation works, frontier settlements, and landscape transformations are discussed.
