Further Developments for Agricultural Planning (LP+)

Project description

The acceptance and cooperation of stakeholders is a key prerequisite for the implementation of plans. The rural development process (RDP) creates the basis for this. Adapted to the issues of a specific area, a RDP develops measures. These are based on an analysis, visioning and operationalization of goals and strategies for the area. In other words, the measures are broadly based and technically sound. A web platform (elr.ethz.ch) brings together all the information available for the process and lets participants interact.
