    The Bulgarian NRN has developed a new dynamic website, offering its members & visitors a wide range of information about rural development. Besides the general News section, many News-type sections were also created, such as the RDP website, News from LAGs, Initiatives of NRN Members and Interesting & Useful. The Events Calendar includes events of the Bulgarian NRN, LAGs & other stakeholders. The website is bilingual in all non-dynamic sections. The online ‘Register of Members’ includes all members, who have agreed to be listed there & advanced searches can be made on the basis of the following categories: organization type, district, municipality & interest to RDP axis. There are two LAG-devoted sections: Cooperation & LAGs providing full bilingual profiles of all 35 Bulgarian LAGs with approved LDS. The Cooperation section is targeted at Bulgarian & foreign LAGs & organizations looking for partners under cooperation measures. The sections Good Practices & Others are updated regulary.
