Access to land for rural regeneration

Activity: Talk or presentationTalk or presentation at a conference


Many rural areas are in decline. Although scarcity of land in rural areas appears to be less an issue in rural areas than in urban areas, getting access to land for new rural activities is an issue in many rural communities. Based on initial results of a Horizon 2020 Research and Innovation project RURALIZATION: The opening of rural areas to renew rural generations, jobs and farms (financed by the EU through grant agreement 817642), this paper reflects on the issue of access to land. Next to frameworks of planning and land law, policy and governance frameworks, there are emerging practices of ngos that aim to provide access to land in rural Europe.
