The rural and urban development of our territories is a priority of the European Union Cohesion Policy. The provinces are contributing to it as they provide the link between rural and urban areas.

The aim of this debate is to highlight some actions that provinces can take in order to strengthen growth in rural areas.

The session will address several topics, including examples by which provinces support and strengthen the economic activities in rural areas, such as tourism development, preservation and enhancement of local heritage or accompanying rural development initiatives.

By their action, provinces also fight against territorial and social division by ensuring access to common services and facilities for all.
