Projects & Practice
Rural areas are commonly affected by depopulation and ageing populations. This project promoted healthy and active ageing in rural areas, by offering physical and social activities for the elderly.
Rural Development Programme (RDP) support contributed to the revitalisation of an almost abandoned village in the small Aegean island of Nisyros.
A bakery in a small Aegean island used Rural Development Programme (RDP) support to modernise its workshop and expand its production capacity to provide high quality local products.
A project used Rural Development Programme (RDP) funding to ensure easy access to medical and aftercare services for rural residents.
RDP support helped a young entrepreneur to acquire the necessary equipment in order to start his own wood construction business in an area of high unemployment.
