Browse through the 20 new Multi-Actor Platforms set up by SHERPA. In total 41 MAPs will be working this year on four different topics, addressing specific needs of the rural areas and communities covered by their platforms.

The Multi-Actor Platforms in SHERPA are the core forum for two-way exchanges of ideas, for co-learning and co-creation of knowledge at local, regional and national levels among a wide variety of stakeholders from science, society and policy.

The work of the MAPs is materialised in a synthetic document outlining the findings on specific topics. These MAP Position Papers feed into the SHERPA Position Papers putting forward recommendations for modern rural policies and the future research agenda.
