The need for a White Paper on Rurality: a new brochure of the CoR has been published

The European Committee of the Regions (CoR) has published a Brochure entitled “The need for a White Paper on Rurality: from a local and regional perspective, For a European rural Agenda after 2020”.

In this brochure, representatives of the CoR, members of the European Parliament and 3 organisations from the Civil Society (RED – Purple and Euromontana) explain why they support the idea to have a White Paper for rural areas.

Despite the strong support from different EU institutions and the civil society, the European Commission still needs to be convinced about the strong need to have a White Paper on Rurality. Euromontana will continue its efforts towards this end and you can already discover the article of Juanan Gutierrez, the President of Euromontana, explaining why Euromontana supports this idea to fully exploit the strong innovation and growth potential of mountain areas.

In this brochure, you will also find the answers from Phil Hogan, EU Commissioner for Agriculture and Rural Development and Normunds POPENS, Deputy Director-General – Directorate General for Regional and Urban Policy of the European Commission.
