Position Paper on Governance of Agriculture and Rural Development
This position paper was prepared by the Albanian Network for Rural Development through ongoing consultation with its member organizations, experts, and researchers of the sector of agriculture and rural development. The issues elaborated in it will be extensively consulted with farmers, producer groups, civil society organizations, rural entrepreneurs, etc., in the forums of Drin, Arber, Vjosa and Egnatia, which represent ANRD’s regional nuclei.
The preparation of this position paper was triggered from concerns of farmers and rural entrepreneurs vis-à-vis the many challenges they face in ensuring complementary public support and assistance for their economic activities.
This position paper represents an effort to address some of the main challenges and provides recommendations to tackle the barriers that hinder the public support programs and instruments from being effective and produce tangible and sustainable results.
