The SHERPA Position Paper on “Change in production and diversification of the rural economy” is now available online!
This document aims to contribute to the green and digital transformation debate by presenting opportunities, challenges, and recommendations for production changes and the diversification of the rural economy. These have been identified by eight regional and national SHERPA Multi Actor Platforms (MAPs), and by the EU-level MAP. For instance, changing business models through the adoption of new business solutions and innovative approaches is viewed as a key driver, facilitating change in production and diversification of the rural economy.
Additionally, digitalisation processes and the enhancement of related infrastructure (including broadband) were identified as a possibility to help overcome the divide between urban and rural areas.
