The 7th NRNs’ meeting built on previous ENRD thematic work on ‘Stakeholder Involvement’ by exploring links between agricultural advisors, and rural networks and ways to improve them in order to better support farmers and project beneficiaries.
The event brought advisory service providers together with Network Support Unit (NSU) representatives to exchange on the differing systems and delivery models across EU countries and regions.
The event also discussed rural networks’ various thematic work outputs, how these reflect realities on the ground and how they can be used to improve cooperation, as well as project design and implementation.
A final discussion session considered ways in which NSUs can best support the implementation of the Cork 2.0 Declaration.
The event concluded with field visits to RDP-supported projects on Friday, 17 March.
