Seminar on improving the delivery of Rural Development Programmes
Brussels, Belgium - 9 December 2011

The new 2014-2020 programming period will be with us before we know it! To help to kick-off detailed preparations in Member States and regions, the ENRD held a seminar on ‘Improving the delivery of Rural Development Programmes’ in Brussels on the 9th of December 2011.

Brief Summary

The seminar was informed by the outcomes of the ENRD’s Thematic Working Group 4,”Delivery Mechanisms of EU Rural Development Policy” which has identified what works well in terms of RDP delivery and what could be improved in the future.

The majority of the seminar was comprised of workshop discussions focusing on the future programming period. Namely, how to:

  • Improve the design of programmes (stronger strategic orientation, better targeting, and coordination with other policies).
  • Make the implementation of programmes more efficient and to enhance coordination between implementing bodies.
  • Facilitate access to funding for potential beneficiaries.
