Rural Development Network of the Republic of Macedonia

The union of civil associations “Rural Development Network of The Republic of Macedonia – “RDN of RM” was established in March 2010 in Skopje, as a movement organized at national level to provide a voice for rural communities in the Republic of Macedonia.

The aim of RDN of RM is to demonstrate a structured approach in mobilizing rural communities to become stronger agents of local developments and participate in rural policy at local, regional, national and EU level.  This includes establishment of an effective cooperation and mutual help among individuals and organizations from the rural areas, in order to ensure effective representation of the needs, the voice and interests of the rural population and provision of flow of information between government and non-government bodies on all levels.

Establishing of the pre-accession rural network in Macedonia is a clear and constructive idea, based on a solid human and knowledge grounds that have been already created through the implementation of the LEADER-like activities supported by the Macedonian Agricultural Advisory Support Programme (MAASP), funded through the Swedish International Development Agency (Sida) over the last three years. LEADER stands for ‘Links between actions of rural development’. It is a method of initiating and delivering rural development in local rural communities.
