One of the innovations in the European Commission's proposals or cohesion policy 2014-2020 is Community-Led Local Development (CLLD) projects. This mechanism draws on 20 years of experience in rural areas where partnerships between authorities, NGOs and other actors have helped to explore the long-term potential of their area.

This new facility in Cohesion Policy is based on the rationale that tackling complex issues such as poverty, deprivation or unemployment, needs an integrated and inclusive approach involving many local actors. Features of CLLD are that it is area-based; bottom-up; public-private; integrated; innovative; co-operative and involves the use of networking.

As the economic uncertainty continues in Europe, austerity programmes have resulted in cuts to public budgets and local services. Health inequalities are growing, with more families experiencing poverty and rising levels of unemployment.

The CLLD facility will be a valuable mechanism to support partnerships between public officials, local activitists and NGOs and businesses. The workshop explored lessons learned about such partnerships from rural development and how the health gain model could support new thinking on how to tackle inter-linked problems.

The workshop was organised in cooperation with the Mattone International Project and the Ministry of Health of the Sicily Region.
