    The Portuguese Rural Network’s magazine is a “window” to the rural world in Portugal and in Europe, bringing to the reader valuable information about rural development policies and opinions and about a number of countrywide initiatives in the field. The magazine offers interviews and different perspectives from pertinent rural development actors, organizations and/or specialists. The first three numbers of this thematic magazine were the first phase of a larger project who will continue in the next programming period. It provides information about local and international projects, especially regarding those considered relevant or innovative, as well as about the current and next programming period. It also includes 16 pages of best practices projects.
