The Department of Rural and Community Development, today (16 March 2018), has published the Department’s Statement of Strategy 2017 – 2020 on its website. This publication will underpin the Department’s work for the coming years and enable the Department in working towards its mission to “To promote rural and community development and to support vibrant, inclusive and sustainable communities throughout Ireland”.
The Strategy Statement lays out the vision as to how the Department will design and implement policies that will empower communities, including those facing economic or social disadvantage to unlock their full potential. Two key policy documents : The Action Plan for Rural Development, and the Framework Policy for Local and Community Development in Ireland, will support the work of the Department in the coming years, with particular focus on fulfilling the commitments under the Programme for a Partnership Government.
