On 25 April 2012, the Council of Ministers adopted the strategy for the sustainable rural development, agriculture and fisheries, submitted by the Minister of Agriculture and Rural Development, Marek Sawicki. The strategy was developed in consultation with a wide range of experts and based on the results of public and inter-ministerial consultations, as well as the results of independent evaluations. This is one of nine integrated development strategies that will provide the basic instruments for the updated Medium Term Development Strategy 2020, and Long Term National Development Strategy to 2030.


The strategy will be implemented in the years 2012-2020 and will seek to improve the quality of life in rural areas, and to promote the efficient use resources, including agriculture and fisheries, to ensure sustainable development. The strategy is based on five key issues, namely human capital, quality of life, security, competitiveness and the environment and will draw on support within the framework of EU policies, including the Common Agricultural Policy and the Cohesion Policy for Rural Development, in the new EU programming period 2014-2020.
