An association used RDP support to turn the ‘disadvantages’ of long periods of cold and darkness in northern Sweden, into a unique selling point for tourism.
Projects & Practice
Support from the rural development programme was used to buy new machinery and expand the production capacity of a biogas plant.
Sweden’s National Rural Network has set up thematic working groups to improve and encourage the role of rural stakeholders in the delivery of rural development activity.
Previously uncultivated and overgrown agricultural land was restored and was used to set up a new competitive and sustainable business.
A restoration project of an old railway station became a model of energy-efficient renovation work and set the grounds for creating a eco cluster of specialised companies and technicians.
