A new case study by fi-compass examines how a Financial Instrument (FI) under the European Agricultural Fund for Rural Development (EAFRD) was designed and implemented to provide funding to Estonian agricultural and rural enterprises.
The European Network for Rural Development (ENRD) is the structure that brings together all the stakeholders aiming to achieve improved rural development results in the EU.
The network serves as a hub for the sharing of information about how Rural Development policy, programmes, projects and other initiatives are working in practice and how they can be improved to achieve more.
This Good Practice Workshop provides a forum for Managing Authorities, Paying Agencies, LAG-representatives, data providers and evaluators to: (1) Discuss the approaches for data management in RDPs 2014-2020; (2) exchange on the availability and quality of the data to be used for the AIR to be submitted in 2017 and beyond; (3) reflect about potential data gaps and bottlenecks in data management and the solutions to overcome them.
