Summary/Abstract: The Regulation (EU) No 1305/2013 lays down general rules governing the Union’s support to rural development, financed by the European Agricultural Fund for Rural Development (“the EAFRD”) and established by the Regulation (EU) No 1306/2013. It sets out the objectives to which rural development policy is to contribute and the relevant Union priorities for rural development. It outlines the strategic context for the rural development policy and defines the measures to be adopted in order to implement the rural development policy. In addition, it lays down rules on programming, networking, management, monitoring and evaluation on the basis of responsibilities shared between the Member States and the Commission and rules to ensure coordination of the EAFRD with other Union instruments (Аrt. 1). The Regulation declares its three main objectives: fostering the competitiveness of agriculture; ensuring the sustainable management of natural resources, and climate action; achieving a balanced territorial development of rural economies and communities including the creation and maintenance of employment (Art. 3). Due to the urgency of preparing the smooth implementation of the measures envisaged, this Regulation entered into force on the day of its publication in the Official Journal of the European Union.
