Over the past 15 years, partnerships have emerged as a commonplace feature of rural regeneration strategies, yet little is known about how rural regeneration partnerships work in practice - about their successes or about the obstacles to effective partnership working.This report presents the findings of a two-year research project which analysed 154 rural partnerships operating in mid-Wales and Shropshire. It examines the processes involved in building and maintaining regeneration partnerships in rural areas and seeks to establish why some partnerships effectively build capacity while others do not.Drawing on an extensive database of rural regeneration partnerships working in the study regions and first-hand evidence from those involved in six case study regeneration partnerships, Partnership working in rural regeneration discusses:characteristics of rural regeneration partnerships;the organisation and structure of such partnerships;the experiences of working in partnership;the implications of partnerships for future rural governance strategies.[vbTab][vbTab]Examples of good (and bad) practice are highlighted throughout the report, particularly on issues of partnership aims and objectives, strategies, structure, representativeness, training, resourcing and funding.Partnership working in rural regeneration is essential reading for those working in rural regeneration partnerships, policy makers and local and national government, as well as anyone with an interest in regeneration strategies and practice.
