The Minister for Rural and Community Development Michael Ring TD speaking on the Strategy said: “The original cross-sectoral group on Local and Community Development achieved phenomenal work in creating this important document, agreeing also a commitment to their rer-establishment, with a reviewed membership, to advance the objectives and monitor progress of the implementation of Sustainable, Inclusive and Empowered Communities.
“To ensure the broadest representation of voices on the Group, I am inviting expressions of interest from persons involved in the stakeholder groups to participate in the new Cross-Sectoral Group.”
