Associació d'Iniciatives Rurals de Catalunya (ARCA)

The Associació d’iniciatives Rurals de Catalunya is the regional network for rural development in Catalonia. It provides assistance and represents the 12 Catalan Local Action Groups (LAG).
The network was born in 2010 with the aim to broadcast the activities developed by the LAGs and support them to achieve their mission: stimulate rural and coastal areas by facilitating new projects and opportunities for their inhabitants.

ARCA is structured around 4 actions:

  • Action 1: technical support services to the Local Action Groups.
  • Action 2: communication and dissemination of projects, best practices and methodologies.
  • Action 3: representation and presence of the Catalonian network in other bodies.
  • Action 4: participation in rural development and cooperation projects.

The General Assembly of ARCA is composed of 26 members, of whom, nine members form the board of directors. The Association has a technical team to develop the programme of work and coordinate and assist the Leader groups, mainly in projects of inter-territorial and transnational cooperation, at its disposition. They have also created a technical commission made up of the managers of the Leader groups, the technical team of the Association and representatives of the Subdirectorate-General Of Rural Strategy, whose function is to propose, share and debate on the performance of the Association, participate in the creation of the annual report and the formation of specific workgroups on topics.
