This Roundtable, hosted by the Farmers Partner Constituent Group of the General Assembly of Partners, will promote a multi-stakeholder approach to urban-rural development by bringing together farmers, planners, professionals, and local authorities to discuss and forge a new framework for responsive territorial planning.
