Event description
Public Consultation Events to inform the next phase of rural policy for Ireland

About this Event

The Department of Rural and Community Development is currently developing a new, whole-of-Government rural development policy for Ireland. This will follow on from the Action Plan for Rural Development which was published in January 2017 and reaches the end of its three-year timeframe in 2019.

The new rural policy will be forward-looking, with a 5-year timeframe, and will focus on strengthening our rural communities and economies. It will take account of emerging economic, societal and international developments. These include the increasing focus on climate change adaptation, diversification in the agri-food sector, the next version of the CAP and LEADER programmes, new ways of working and the changing nature of jobs, changing demographics within rural communities, and Brexit.

The Department has held a series of consultation events over the last number of months to obtain stakeholder views on the challenges and opportunities facing rural Ireland.

The Department is now holding two fuller public consultation events, in September and October, to inform the next phase of rural development policy for Ireland. These workshops will seek to obtain the views of people living and working in rural Ireland on the challenges and opportunities facing them and their communities over the next five years, and actions required to help rural Ireland realise its full potential.
