Croatian Rural Development Network - HMRR is a civil society organization (CSO) and a network of organisations that promotes sustainable development of Croatian rural areas since 2006. By working together, networking, partnership and knowledge transfer we aim to improve conditions for sustainable development and high-quality life in rural communities. At the start of 2018 the Network counts 46 members.  We advocate an evenly developed Croatia, in which residents of rural areas actively contribute to developing their communities by their social and economic activities.

HMRR's areas of activity are (1) advocating interests of rural stakeholders in creating and implementing public policies; (2) networking and informing our members and contributors to rural development, (3) education, exchange of knowledge and experiences and (4) organisation development.

HMRR initiated and organized two Croatian Rural Parliaments. The goal of the national rural parliament is to hear and appreciate the voice of the rural communities. In the rural parliament, rural areas have the opportunity to influence policy and implementation of rural development and strengthen links and partnerships.
