Inspiring programming for living European mountains by 2020


The Italian Rural Network and Euromontana co-organised in Rome (6th -7th June) a conference to debate and find solutions for ensuring, through innovative policies, the defense of the territory, the quality of the social and economic context and management of the landscape in mountain areas.

Agriculture plays today a vital role for the proper management of the landscape, biodiversity conservation, contrast to abandonment and especially support to the local economy in mountain areas. In these areas agriculture is often a triggering factor for the local development, able to integrate other sectors of the economy, ensuring the vitality of the European mountain areas.

In the proposed Rural Development Regulation for 2014-2020, there is a reference to the activation of Thematic sub-programmes within the RDPs, including the one for Mountain areas, in order to address the Union priorities and respond to specific needs identified in areas of particular importance. During the conference a specific overview was dedicated to territorial cohesion policy and territorial governance among European Regional Development Fund, European Social Fund, European Agricultural Fund for Rural Development and national funds in Mountain areas.

  • Objectifs :

The objective of the event was to inspire the elaboration of 2014-2020 development programmes impacting mountain areas, with an overall view on Common Strategic Framework (CSF) funds and a more specific focus on rural development fund as the event was organised by Italian National Rural Network. In that sense, the event was a follow-up to the ENRD event “Successful programming” on 6-7 December 2012.

The first day (6th June) counted with the participation of representatives of European and National Institutions to discuss the future strategies to plan effective interventions in favor of mountain areas, promoting sustainable development, economic growth and the creation of new jobs. The following session was very operative with examples of integrated policies for mountain areas across Europe: at Regional, Interregional and Municipality level.

The second day (7th June) was entirely dedicated to relevant project examples implemented by stakeholders in Europe and Italy. During two parallel workshops a total of 10 European projects examples were presented by these stakeholders.

Target audience:

The event was targeted at Managing Authorities and people involved in formulation of rural development programmes in general, mountain stakeholders and organisations, people involved in regional policy and design of operational programmes which needed to be coordinated with rural development programmes.
