ELARD was working as part of the latest European Rural parliament (ERP) project known as ROAD. ROAD aimed to raise the profile of the ERP and demonstrate the importance of rural communities working together and sharing information.
The ERP is a co-operation project between the three European rural networks PREPARE Partnership for Rural Europe, ERCA (European Rural Communities Alliance) and ELARD. As the foregone ERP projects this third ERP project was funded with the support of the European Programme “Europe for Citizens”.
The task of ELARD in this project was the implementation of the sub-project “LEADER/CLLD for citizens and for the European Union”. Its aim is to develop suggestions on how LEADER/CLLD can strengthen the connection between the EU and the citizens via integrated local development and well managed usage of different ESI Funds.
The 4th ERP event was held in Spain in November 2019.
