The ENRD Thematic Group (TG) on ‘European Green Deal and Rural Areas’ focused on the EGD’s role in rural areas and on rural and agricultural activities’ possible contributions to achieving selected EGD objectives. The TG’s first meeting defined the specific topics that the TG will address in its further work until May 2021. The discussion was oriented by the background work carried out by the ENRD Contact Point, and on TG members’ inputs received during the membership registration.
The objectives of the first meeting were to:
- Provide an overview of the EGD policies / actions that have most relevance to rural areas and agriculture
- Clarify on the role of CAP in the delivery of EGD environmental and climate objectives
- Discuss and validate the specific working topics of the TG.
