DATE: 2 October 2011
PLACE: Brussels, Belgium
The submission of the legislative proposals for a new EU Common Agricultural Policy is expected in late 2011. Rural development is expected to be a major part of the reform of the CAP.
Rural areas are facing new and major challenges, such as tackling climate change, increasing international competition and the impacts of demographic change. How can we tackle such challenges with fewer resources? What are the consequences for the future development of rural areas within the EU? These are some questions that this conference will try to address.
