Focus on: enabling the low-carbon transition in rural areas

Rural and remote areas are vital to our way of life, supporting the primary production of food and raw material, providing leisure activities and contributing to overall wellbeing and environmental health through ecosystem services.

However, they face distinct challenges compared to urban areas, specifically a declining and ageing population, less access to opportunities, and greater challenges in transport and energy infrastructure.

For these reasons, they require tailored policies and instruments that take advantage of their strengths while helping them tackle their challenges. 

To help you better grasp this topic, our thematic experts, Katharina Krell and Simon Hunkin have put together a selection of reading materials and online events taking stock of Interreg Europe's good practices and policy initiatives. 

Do you have a policy challenge on the rural green transition that you would like to tackle? Do not hesitate to contact our experts and they will see how to best help you!
