A business network used LEADER funding to provide an alternative source of business support to rural communities through local people with relevant knowledge and contacts.
Projects & Practice
In a rural area without public sewage system, a LEADER project helped the local population to get familiar with the new environmental standards, legislation and requirements on wastewater treatment. It also enabled them to make informed decisions on which wastewater treatment technology to use.
This Lithuanian LEADER project empowered the women of a small village to create a brand for their organic fruit and vegetables, and increase the income they generate by selling their home produce.
