Rural Development Policy in Figures
Financial and physical indicators
On the basis of the data communicated by the Managing Authorities in the Annual Progress Reports, summary tables accompanied by charts have been produced to illustrate the progress of implementation of the EU Rural Development Programmes (RDP) by means of financial and physical indicators (specifically, output indicators).
Financial data - including Total Public Expenditure and EAFRD contribution - have been aggregated by MS and at the EU27 level in order to show the progress of the RDP expenditures per axis and measure in the years 2007 to 2011. A comparison with the total budget allocated for the whole programming period 2007-2013 is also provided (total budget following the Health Check of the CAP). Financial data are directly generated and provided by DG AGRI.
An aggregation at Member State and the European level is also provided for output indicators (per axis and measures). A comparison with the 2007-2013 output targets illustrates the state of implementation of the programmes.
