It showcased inspiring initiatives and projects and enabled participants to share their experience and ideas.
The ninth meeting of the ENRD Thematic Group on Smart Villages took place in Finland, one of the countries that has advanced the most in preparing the support framework for Smart Villages in the next programming period.
The workshop provided an overview of how environmental objectives can be addressed through the future CAP Strategic Plans. It gathered Member States, NGOs, farmers' associations and EU institutions representatives that discussed lessons learnt from current programming period and shared ideas on designing effective interventions to deliver environmental objectives in the CAP Strategic Plans.
The ENRD Contact Point organised a workshop on ‘Stakeholder involvement: Monitoring Committees and the Partnership Principle'. This attracted a large proportion of national CAP-related authorities and representatives of stakeholder organisations who had not previously attended ENRD events. Such interest from ‘new’ ENRD stakeholders demonstrates the value of the information about CAP programming that continues to be discussed and networked through the ENRD.
