The Walloon RDP supports the provision of quality healthcare services for ageing inhabitants of rural areas in Belgium.
Projects & Practice
‘Nos Oignons’ is an association that supported the preparation and implementation of three RDP funded projects that promote social farming in Wallonia.
Switching from manual labour to mechanised work in order to make the business much more cost effective.
Modernisation and development of a small beekeeping farm in order to increase its profitability and its resilience to weather-associated risks.
Ensuring the productivity of a fruit-producing business by replacing low-yield apricot orchards with more reliable plants.
A dairy farm in Wallonia invested in renewable energy production from manure and produced milk using a more environmental friendly process.
The project considered built heritage as a development lever for a rural area and relied upon the younger generation to raise awareness about it and to take care of it in the longer term.
An association used RDP support to redevelop the inadequate building of an old community centre into a multiple service centre covering both cultural and information needs of the local residents.
A young farmer realised her dream to set up a farm for breeding the Hungarian swine Mangalica using support from various RDP measures.
LEADER funding in two subsequent projects helped a small metalware company grow its size and capacity and take advantage of new market opportunities.
