Rural territories, including those in peri-urban areas, host 58% ofEU population and 56% of EU employment. 80% of the European territory is rural or rural-intermediate (CAP Context Indicators 2014 update - DG Agri).

Based on this observation, the ECM (European Countryside Movement) - of which the FITE is a partner - calls for the creation of a White Paper on rurality by the EU, to take into account the different specificities described below :
