This edition gives a lot of attention to what happened at the major European Conference on Rural Development in Cork, Ireland 5-6 September 2016 – known as ‘Cork 2.0’. The thematic section has “A focus on… Cork 2.0", providing an overview of the event, the main messages of the workshops, the resulting ‘Cork 2.0 Declaration’ in full and a series of 20 different participant reactions.

The edition also includes the regular “News and updates” from the ENRD and the EU as well as the usual “Rural issues, Rural perspectives” section. This features a range of stakeholder voices on topics ranging from transnational cooperation to local consultation and from a growing European network of artists to the first ever rural digital hub in Ireland.

This edition of the EAFRD Projects Brochure explores how people in rural areas have used EAFRD support to respond to the challenges and opportunities presented by the recent influx of migrants and refugees into the European Union.

Without judgement on broader migration policy questions, the brochure aims to provide a picture of what is actually happening in several rural areas in Europe to deal with the evolving situation in more positive ways. It presents projects under the sub-themes of ‘changing the narrative’, ‘jobs and the labour market’ and ‘coordinated responses’.

This edition of the EAFRD Projects Brochure presents examples of methods and approaches that have been used across Europe to deliver results on the topics of rural broadband, digital access to market, farm modernisation, market development, rural diversification and sustainable communities.

It hopes to provide inspiration on how to develop the strategies and tools for different types of rural areas to be economically competitive, while at the same time preserving their natural resources and social cohesion.

"News and updates" include ENRD and NRN work to ‘Unlock the potential of the RDPs’, the European Fund for Strategic Investments and the new EU Circular Economy action plan.

The "Rural issues, Rural perspectives" section features stakeholder voices on topics ranging from the new global agreement on climate change to creative rural regeneration and from rural entrepreneurship to Roma inclusion.

This edition also features "A focus on… LEADER Cooperation", with reports and interviews on inter-regional, inter-Fund and third country cooperation examples, as well as efforts to harmonise application processes across RDPs.
