Building Jacques Delors, room JD 51
The Intergroup on Rural, mountainous and remote areas of the European Parliament with the European Countryside Movement organise an event on “Rural territories in the 2014-2020 policies of territorial cohesion and inclusive growth” in Brussels on the 22nd September 2015 with the exceptional participation of Ms Cretu, European Commissioner in charge of regional policy.
The Europe 2020 Strategy, source of the Common Strategic Framework, highlighted the objective of inclusive growth. While the Juncker Commission and new instruments (CLLD, ITI,…) have been set up, it is time to cross the main objectives and the first steps of the 2014-2020 programming period with respect to the future of European rural territories.
Are the rural areas expected partners of the economic, smart and inclusive growth?
Which place do they take in the strategic guidelines of the new cohesion policy?
Which recognition of the rural potential in the prospective programmes and strategies ?
The parliamentary intergroup RUMRA launched in March 2015 shares these questions. Its strategic guidelines expresses its ambition :
· to promote an integrated development of rural, mountainous and remote areas in a balanced relationship with the urban poles,
· to work for an explicit recognition of rural territories, with their diversity, as poles of development and innovation,
· to further improve the social, economic and technological inclusion of the rural, mountainous and remote areas and the well-being of their inhabitants through the implementation of the Europe 2020 Strategy.
