This policy briefing outlines the key elements, or ingredients, needed to mobilise stakeholders around the Rural Pact and foster concerted action towards meeting the objectives of the long-term vision for the EU’s rural areas in the specific context of each Member State or region. It also presents inspiring examples of how these elements are put into practice.
This publication developed by the Rural Pact Support Office is intended primarily for public authorities at national level (and at regional level in Member States where regional authorities have legislative or programming powers), civil society organisations (especially those involved in policy-making or advocacy), researchers, business organisations and other stakeholders with an interest in rural policies.
The publication has been developed by the Rural Pact Support Office enriched with insights from the collaborative efforts of the Rural Pact Community and the contributions of the members of the Rural Pact Coordination Group.
