About the MAP
In Poland, the European Rural Development Network (ERDN) coordinates the Multi-Actor Platform Zielone Sąsiedztwo. This platform operates at the regional level and is based on an existing Local Action Group (LAG) complemented by research actors.
The rural areas close to Warsaw have specific development problems such as loss of the agricultural function and development of city-like functions, conservation of the landscapes and biodiversity, and loosening social cohesion. In this context the platform will focus on the identification of problems in rural development, the analysis of policy tools supporting biodiversity and rural landscapes and policy instruments that contribute to vibrant rural areas. On these topics, the platform will enable stakeholders to contribute to the debate and propose policy measures and instruments.
The activities of this MAP are designed so that to achieve the following specific objectives:
- MAP objective 1: Identification of problems related to rural development.
- MAP objective 2: Analysis of necessary policy tools to support rural landscapes and biodiversity.
- MAP objective 3: Enumeration of policy instruments needed to create resilient and vibrant rural areas.
