This edition of the EAFRD Projects Brochure illustrates how the mainstreaming of the bioeconomy is being accelerated by Rural Development Programmes (RDPs) around Europe.

A sustainable bioeconomy, while it benefits everyone, has particular relevance for rural communities. The twelve projects featured in this Projects Brochure illustrate how RDPs are helping rural communities seize the opportunities offered by the bioeconomy through the production of sustainable food and feed, innovative bio-based products, renewable energy, environmentally sustainable growth and awareness raising.

This is the highlights report of the ENRD Workshop on 'Combatting Rural Depopulation: Cretaing new opportunities for vibrant rural areas'. 

It overviews the key drivers and effects of population decline in rural areas across the EU, looking at the role of the Rural Development Programmes (RDPs) and other EU policies and instruments in order to help create an enabling rural environment. It explores examples of projects contributing to the creation of business opportunities and the improvement of services and quality of life in rural communities, as well as examples of integrated approaches that can help combat rural depopulation.

This is the main report of the eighth meeting of the ENRD Thematic Group (TG) on 'Smart Villages'.

The report also outlines similar initiatives and plans for developing local digital ecosystems in Germany, Spain and Donegal (Ireland).

This is the main report of the third meeting of the ENRD Thematic Group (TG) on 'Mainstreaming the Bioeconomy'.

EAFRD Projects Brochure Youth and Generational Renewal

Cette édition de la Brochure des projets FEADER présente douze projets qui montrent que la politique de développement rural contribue à transformer les zones rurales en lieux de vie et de travail plus attrayants pour les jeunes, dans le secteur agricole et en dehors.

Les jeunes des régions rurales, et en particulier les jeunes agriculteurs, revitalisent ces zones et ouvrent la voie à des chaînes de valeur renforcées et à la prospérité rurale. Le renouvellement des générations est l’une des conditions préalables à l’amélioration de la compétitivité du secteur agricole sur le long terme et à la durabilité de la production alimentaire en Europe.

La mise en réseau concerne avant tout les personnes – et les réseaux de développement rural en sont un très bel exemple. Il s’agit de se réunir, d’imaginer de nouveaux modes de réflexion et de fonctionnement, et de construire quelque chose de nouveau ensemble – quelque chose de plus vaste que la somme de ses composants individuels et qui bénéficie aux communautés rurales partout où elles se trouvent.

À l’occasion de networX – le plus important rassemblement de la communauté des réseaux ruraux européens organisé dans le cadre de la période de programmation 2014-2020 – nous voulons saluer cet esprit de collaboration et célébrer les dix ans du Réseau européen de développement rural (REDR).

Cette publication considère les réseaux ruraux à travers les yeux des jeunes, qui détermineront l’évolution future de la campagne européenne. Elle illustre aussi comment les réseaux soutiennent l’entrepreneuriat rural, l’environnement, le patrimoine rural et les communautés rurales dynamiques – des domaines dans lesquels l’impact des réseaux ruraux est évident.
