ASR & the Regional Capacity Building Workshop






 On the 30th of January 2014 Rural Development Association  (ASR)  organized the regional capacity building workshop at the  conference room of LAG Valle della Cupa in Trepuzzi, Puglia. Key  actors and stakeholders were invited to participate in new strategies  to implement more solid and long  lasting cooperation amongst rural entrepreneurs and other organizations interested in  the enhancement of the agrofood sector. 

Best practices collected by the project partners in the cooperation  area were presented together with new technologies that meet the  needs, size and production capacity of micro and small  entrepreneurs.


Special attention was dedicated to  two solar driers which will be used by ASR in the implementation of the foreseen pilot activities. These technologies can have a relevant role in the enhancement of the economic competitiveness of micro and small rural entrepreneurs since, amongst other benefits, they allow the recovery of the  surplus in the production of the cultivated fruit and vegetable. The value of a technology that reduces  impacts on the environment was underlined.

In May Rural Development Association will start implementing experimental activities.
