3. CURRENT Operational Programme & Food
There is no (more) funding available that could be
used to finance parts of a Local Action Plan on
Sustainable Food.
Thematic Network Sustainable Food for Urban Communities - Teleconference
26 March 2013I Page 21
3. Next Programming period & Food
Are you consulting local stakeholders active or
knowledgeable in the area of (sustainable) food
production, distribution or consumption?
Who should be consulted and how?
› Other bodies are working on this: West
Sweden, West England, Rhône-Alpes
› Consultation is starting: Attica, West
Netherlands, Sicily, Brussels Capital
Region,
› Not a priority: Romania Environment
Thematic Network Sustainable Food for Urban Communities - Teleconference
26 March 2013I Page 22
Other bodies are working on this:
› West Sweden
In Sweden, it is not the managing authority, Tillväxtverket, that
has the main responsibility for drafting the Programmes. It is
the regional actors, and for West Sweden it is the Region of
Västra Götaland, Region Halland as well as the city of
Gothenburg.
› West England
the proposed mechanism for delivering EU Common Strategic
Framework Funds in England is through an EU Growth
Programme with a single governance structure . The funds
available will be nationally allocated to Local Enterprise
Partnership (LEP) areas and the LEPs have been tasked to
develop EU Strategic Investment plans for 2014-2020. LEPs
will get in touch with the most appropriate local stakeholders,
i.e. those which are most susceptible to support the delivery
of their
plans in the future.

9 May 2012 I Page 23
Consultation is starting
› Attica:

Consulting local stakeholders will be a basic part of the
drafting preparations of the new OP (through regular
meetings...).

In that framework the Greek partner of the network could
prepare and develop a specific plan on how actions
connected to sustainable food production could “match” to
the goals of the next programming period for Attica Region,
which are going to be focused mainly on research &
innovation projects.
Thematic Network Sustainable Food for Urban Communities - Teleconference
9 May 2012 I Page 24
Consultation is starting
› West Netherlands:

Yes, there is consultation.

The focus will be on the so-called top sectors in the Netherlands.

One of the top-sectors is Agr-Food, another is Horticulture.

Cross cutting theme for the top-sectors is Sustainability. So, there will
be space for sustainable interventions.

Stakeholders include Universities and the entrepreneurial
organisations of the sector.
Thematic Network Sustainable Food for Urban Communities - Teleconference
9 May 2012 I Page 25
Consultation is starting
› Sicily:

Participatory drafting of the 2014/2020 ERDF OP is about to
start and the mapping of stakeholders to be involved in the
process is ongoing.

The opportunity to consult stakeholders active in these
specific issues has to be addressed soon along with the
identification of the most representative one(s) with whom to
share aspect related to this issue to be included in the OP.
Thematic Network Sustainable Food for Urban Communities - Teleconference
9 May 2012 I Page 26
Not a priority for our OP
› Romania Environment:

Since the SOP Environment does not include a Priority Axis
related to food production, distribution and consumption, the
drafting process of the operational programme doesn’t
include consultations with local stakeholders active in food
domain.

A relevant Authority able to offer more information regarding
food production, distribution and consumption should be the
Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development.

3. Next Programming period & Food
Is a specific budget line foreseen under which
sustainable food actions would be eligible?
If yes, which and under what conditions?
› Not foreseen: Romania Environment
› To early to say: Attica, West Netherlands,
Sicily, West Sweden
› A clear link could be made: Brussels Capital
Region
Thematic Network Sustainable Food for Urban Communities - Teleconference
26 March 2013I Page 28
A clear link to the food sector could be made
› Brussels Capital Region:
The buget line categories of OPs are not well-defined enough today
to express it definitely but a link can clearly be made with several of
the Thematic Objectives of the (future) Regulation
 Enhancing the competitiveness of small and medium-sized
enterprises (TO3), with a specific attention to this sector
 Protecting the environment and promoting resource efficiency
(TO 6, with “protecting biodiversity, soil protection and promoting
ecosystem services”)
 Promoting employment and supporting labour mobility (TO8, with
“development of business incubators and investment support for
self- employment and business creation”)
 Investing in education, skills and lifelong learning by developing
education and training infrastructure (TO10, with specific training
programmes dedicated to this job opportunity sector).
