Working Groups

Rationale of use

In Slovakia, 21 sub-working groups were convened by the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development of the SR to finalise intervention wording, drawing from a larger Working Group.


The sub-groups were convened by the various responsible departments of the Ministry according to the need to finalise the wording of interventions. Members of the large Working group were asked to nominate their representatives in this sub groups. These representatives participated in on-line meetings where the interventions were introduce with the opportunity to provide first feedback and than to send the comments in writing. The next meeting addressed the comments until the agreeable text was found.

Types of outputs

The outputs include the finalised formulations of interventions, crafted through iterative collaboration and consensus among various representatives.

Relevant CAP objective



Sub groups were established later on specifically for the individual interventions setting. Again it was informal without set rules and with no references available.
