The third meeting of the Thematic Group will be organised as a webinar on 26 February 2021 and it will focus on rural areas and the transition to clean energy.
The ENRD Contact Point organised an online workshop to discuss the design and implementation of eco-schemes within the new green architecture of the CAP.
The meeting was an opportunity to update LEADER Sub-group members on the state of play of LEADER implementation and Commission initiatives relating to LEADER, as well as on recent and planned ENRD Contact Point activities related to LEADER.
The 19th NRN meeting was organised by the ENRD Contact Point jointly with the Luxembourg Rural Network. The main objectives of the meeting were to discuss the role of NRNs in supporting and promoting TNC, to provide space to exchange on forthcoming rural networking activities and to consider how NRNs have so far contributed to the development of the LTVRA.
Responding to stakeholders' needs, and following on previous events (the 02/10/2020 webinar on the designing of the intervention strategies and the 25/11/2020 webinar on the designing of CSP interventions) the ENRD Contact Point organised a workshop to support the preparations for the future CAP Strategic Plans (CSPs), focusing on the programming of regional-level interventions.
In response to stakeholders’ interest, the ENRD Contact Point organised a workshop on 'The Transition Regulation, EURI and the Extension of the RDPs'.
This was a meeting of the ENRD Thematic Group (TG) to contribute to developing the EU Long-Term Vision for Rural Areas (LTVRA) announced by the President of the European Commission.
This LEADER Thematic Lab explored various aspects of designing LEADER under the future CAP Strategic Plans for local community resilience and sustainability. It also considered the potential role and contribution of LEADER and existing LAGs on these themes during the transition period to the new CAP.
The meeting focused on effective approaches to support the transition to fully sustainable practices in agriculture and forestry, and analyse how the future CAP could best be used to upscale them. The programme was built around experiences from the Rural Development Programmes, as well as other relevant initiatives such as the LIFE programme, Horizon 2020 projects, or national, regional or local initiatives.
The Good Practice Workshop, ‘Assessing the contribution of RDPs to a competitive and viable agricultural sector' took place on 9-10 December 2020 Online.
