Rural Development Programme (RDP) support contributed to the revitalisation of an almost abandoned village in the small Aegean island of Nisyros.
Projects & Practice
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 small family forestry business used RDP support to acquire new machinery that would enable it to respond to the increasing demand for forest services.
A farm used RDP support to set up a micro district heating system to produce heating from wood biomass and at the same time expand its leisure and tourism facilities.
In a rural area that is rather disadvantaged and in risk of abandonment, EAFRD and ESF support were combined in a project for the integration of migrants through work training.
EAFRD funding enabled the creation of an integrated sports and adventure centre where visitors can enjoy nature and benefit from its environmental education services.
