CC Workshop on “Quality design of environmental and climate measures for 2014-2020 RDPs”
Brussels, Belgium: 4 March 2013

Brief summary

The workshop was one of a series of ENRD preparatory activities for the new programming period (2014-2020). The event was based on the specific programming guidelines and measures being prepared by the European Commission, as well as the conclusions of the work of the ENRD Focus Group on the delivery of environmental services.

The workshop encouraged knowledge sharing between all stakeholders involved in the design and implementation of Rural Development Programmes (MAs, PAs, NRNs, etc.) with the aim of providing:

  • a platform for exchange on the successful programming and design of environment and climate measures; and
  • information on available guidelines and tools to accompany the process.

The discussions enhanced the awareness of underlying needs and issues regarding the delivery of environmental services; as well as improved the knowledge of the possibilities offered by the new policy framework. In this context, ensuring a wider stakeholder involvement in the design and preparation of environmental and climate measures was of key importance.
