Financial instruments and the European Agricultural Fund for Rural Development (EAFRD)
Member States’ Rural Development Programmes (RDPs) can make use of opportunities to use financial instruments such as loans, guarantees and equity. A special seminar is being organised by the EIB and European Commission to help advise RDP stakeholders on the use of such financial instruments.
Designed to be particularly relevant to RDP managing authorities, the seminar content will explain advantages and features of financial instruments in the EAFRD. Case studies will provide practical experience from the field in using financial instruments for agriculture and rural development. Other sessions are organised to highlight the range of support available from fi-compass, as well as from the European Commission and EIB co-operation in general. In addition, a training session on the ex-ante assessment for EAFRD financial instruments is planned.
Strong audience interaction is foreseen through panel sessions with experts, question and answer segments as well as roundtables. All sessions will be in English with German translation available.
Registration for this EAFRD seminar is available through the event calendar on the fi-compass website.
