Town Hall Meetings

Rationale of use

Town Hall Meetings have been implemented in Ireland to foster an inclusive and participatory environment, allowing for a broad spectrum of views from various regions and stakeholders. This approach seeks to engage the public, industry representatives, and policymakers in open dialogue and collaboration on agricultural policies.


These meetings are held across the country and provide an accessible platform for stakeholders to express their thoughts, concerns, and suggestions on the CAP reforms. More details on the meetings can be found on the official Ministry website.

Types of outputs

The outcomes of these meetings are compiled into detailed written reports, available on the Ministry website. The reports summarise the discussions, ideas, and consensus reached, serving as reference materials for policy formulation and decision-making.
