Gegenstand dieser Ausgabe des EU-Magazins Ländlicher Raum ist die Rolle der Vernetzung in der Politik zur Entwicklung des ländlichen Raums. Die Netzwerke werden immer bunter, alle Gruppen mit einem Interesse an der ländlichen Entwicklung sind vertreten und pflegen die Beziehungen untereinander.

Mehr zum Thema Vernetzung findet sich unter dem Stichwort networX, der bislang größten organisierten Zusammenkunft von Praktikern der Netzwerkarbeit in der laufenden Programmperiode.
