In the framework of the European Week of Regions and Cities taking place from October 8 to 10, the Committee of the Regions’ NAT Commission
In the framework of the European Week of Regions and Cities taking place from October 8 to 10, the Committee of the Regions’ NAT Commission secretariat and the FARNET Support Unit will jointly hold a workshop on Community-led Local Development (CLLD), currently funded under all four European Structural and Investment Funds.
The session will give an overview of how CLLD works – from the added value of the bottom-up approach to the advantages to combine its funding from more than one Fund, featuring types of projects funded with CLLD by Local Action Groups (LAGs) from different funds.
The workshop will be interactive, challenging participants to engage in a discussion with experts:
- Rosa Quintana Carballo on the role of Fisheries Local Action Groups in the sustainable development of fisheries areas and implementing the Common Fisheries Policy;
- Eric Andrieu on LEADER and CLLD as instruments for rural development and the Cohesion Policy;
- Paul Soto on making effective partnerships in rural, coastal and urban areas; and
- Marjo Tolvanen on combining territorial differences and sectoral approaches in a practical way.
Following this discussion, more practical examples will be provided by LAGs and showcased during the networking event where participants will have the opportunity to discuss and exchange with CLLD practitioners.
(Wednesday) 00:00 - 23:59
