EAFRD Projects Brochure Youth and Generational Renewal

This edition of the EAFRD Projects Brochure presents twelve projects that show how Rural Development policy is helping to make rural areas more attractive places for young people to live and work, in agriculture and beyond.

Youth in rural areas, and young farmers in particular, enhance rural vitality and pave the way for stronger value chains and rural prosperity. Generational renewal is one of the preconditions for improved competitiveness of the agricultural sector over the longer term and for sustainable food production in Europe.

This is the main report of the fourth meeting of the National Rural Networks (NRNs) in the 2014-2020 period.
It explores NRN self-assessment and evaluation and ways of developing 'communities of practice' between NRNs on topics such as young farmers, smart supply chains and use of the Cooperation Measure (M16).

This edition focuses on communications uncovering the latest thinking from rural networkers while profiling some great examples of communication using digital channels, on-farm knowledge exchange and marketing initiatives to support Rural Development policy implementation.

The edition also includes the regular news and updates from the ENRD and the EU, as well as a collection of rural perspectives delving into topics ranging from bioeconomy value chains in Southern European countries, to initiatives to improve rural broadband, to a World Bank economic report that demonstrates how the CAP benefits the rural economy and drives growth.

This edition includes perspectives on LEADER/CLLD, forestry, integrated approaches to rural policy and the new European Solidarity Corps, as well as short updates from the Slovenian and Slovakian networks.

The edition’s thematic section brings ‘A focus on… social inclusion’, including an overview of social inclusion challenges in rural Europe, highlights of ENRD thematic work, consideration of what LEADER/CLLD can do to foster inclusion, as well as interviews and reports.

This special edition of the ENRD’s EAFRD Project Examples Brochure has been designed to celebrate the EAFRD’s achievements during the 2007-2013 programming period and to inspire similar high quality projects for the 2014-2020 period.

This edition of the EAFRD Projects Brochure explores how people in rural areas have used Rural Development Programme (RDP) funding - co-financed by the EAFRD - to support actions that can be part of the ‘Transition to Greener Rural Economies’.

This transition is about taking advantage of economic opportunities that are environmentally and socially sustainable. It is also about pursuing improved environmental performance in ways that are economically and socially viable.

The projects reflect some of the breadth of relevant approaches that can be supported under the (RDPs), including: making a living from biodiversity; doing more with less; promoting green tourism; generating renewable energy from rural production; installing renewable energy infrastructure in rural areas; and cooperating for a greener economy.

This publication highlights how ICT is being used as an essential tool for unlocking the potential of rural areas, making them more attractive places to live, work and visit.

This issue of EU Rural Review explains the contribution that the Rural Development policy brings to the EU´s climate action agenda.
