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.

It overviews the overall process of defining the Green Economy, best practice implementation, examples of delivery from EU regions and Member States, as well as how these are linked to the Rural Development Programmes (RDPs).

This factsheet explores how bottom-up territorial approaches such as LEADER/CLLD can play an important role in dealing with issues of poverty and social inclusion in rural areas. LEADER/CLLD can help to identify specific problems at the local level, address these through tailor-made measures, and bring together the various actors to provide more effective solutions.

This factsheet explores the role of (policy) networks in supporting social inclusion in rural areas. One of the main added values of networks is that they bring together various stakeholders around common issues of interest and facilitate exchanges of experience and views among them. Through these activities, networks can help to identify and overcome common problems and challenges, and ultimately contribute to the improvement of policy implementation.

This factsheet explores ways of supporting the  inclusion of migrants and refugees in rural areas. Economic migrants have become one of the cornerstones of today’s rural economies. Over the past years, economic migrants have been joined by over one million asylum seekers from war-torn countries. 
While the presence of migrants and asylum seekers is a major challenge in many rural areas for both policy-makers and local inhabitants, it also offers new opportunities for rural development.
This factsheet explores social inclusion of Roma people through LEADER/CLLD. The majority of Roma in the EU face discrimination which results in exclusion and persistent poverty. 
In rural areas, lack of economic opportunities, poor public services, and sub-standard housing and infrastructure are specific challenges. LEADER/CLLD not only offers opportunities to accomplish concrete improvements, but also stimulates active involvement of Roma in community life.
