The future of rural development policy

0

Courtesy of European Environmental Bureau

The EEB considers rural development (RD) to be part of the larger issue of sustainable development. There is an economic, environmental and social – as well as a global solidarity – dimension to sustainability and they are all of equal importance. Sustainable rural development must contribute to achieving EU environmental policy priorities (such as climate change commitments, the 2010 biodiversity target, the Natura 2000 network, soil protection etc).

CONTEXT FOR A BETTER RURAL DEVELOPMENT

Rural development is dependent on the whole society growing more sustainable. Sustainable economic development cannot be based on a deserted countryside and will not succeed without sustainable management of natural resources.
