The European Green Deal and Rural Areas


The European Green Deal and rural areas is the new sub-theme of the broader ENRD thematic work on 'Greening the Rural Economy'.

The dedicated Thematic Group (TG) will operate from September 2020 until July 2021 as a stakeholder driven platform to exchange on the role of the European Green Deal (EGD). The TG  will build on practical lessons from delivering the current RDPs, as well as on past thematic work on rural climate action and bioeconomy, and will collect and provide useful indications and ideas for the programming of green interventions under the future CAP Strategic Plans.

The TG's main focus will be on EGD elements (e.g. Farm to Fork, the Biodiversity Strategy) linked to the delivery of the three climate and environment specific objectives of the CAP post-2020: climate action, environmental care and preserving landscapes and biodiversity.

The TG will aim to engage a wide range of stakeholders, either directly involved in the CAP Strategic Planning or interested in the topic.  

This page provides all the information on Thematic Group meetings and related thematic outputs and will be updated on a regular basis.
