Second European Forum on Sustainable Rural Development

The Second European Forum on Sustainable Rural Development took place during the week of 18 June 2007 in Berlin. It was convened by the European Commission, the German Presidency of the European Union and the Global Donor Platform for Rural Development, the forum was forward-looking towards emerging issues of major concern for achieving impact in growth and poverty reduction, and had a practical focus on improving rural development policies and programmes. It brought attention to the important economic, social and environmental changes underway in rural areas, and discussed the necessary responses, emphasising operational issues of improving aid delivery and coordination. Its principal (but not exclusive) geographical focus was on sub-Saharan Africa, which is increasingly seen as the major focus for achieving the Millennium Development Goals.

The overall theme of the forum was "Sustainable Growth and Poverty Reduction in Rural Africa: How can Europe be a more effective partner?" The issue is high on the international policy agenda in view of the World Development Report 2008 on Agriculture and Development and also the continuing G8 discussions on mobilising resources for African development.
