Setting up a house locating system in the rural areas of Formentera island, Spain, made it easier for emergency services and other service providers to access isolated rural homes.
Projects & Practice
Farmers in France’s Auvergne region used EAFRD support to preserve peatland and wet meadows in two Natura 2000 areas where over a hundred farmers raise cattle.
A winemaking cooperative in France’s Jura region used EAFRD funding to develop a bio-purification system for managing waste in an environmentally sustainable way.
Food producers and providers in Spain’s Aragon region used RDP funds to promote local food through short supply chains via a coordinated system of local and online outlets across an area larger than the Netherlands
Transnational cooperation between a French and Portuguese LAG on the topic of urban-rural relations has resulted in mutual learning about new ways to improve the scope and effectiveness of short supply-chains for local food.
RDP support financed the design of circular cyclist trial of 146 km across the regional park Sierra Espuña. This kind of tourism promotes local development while ensuring minimum environmental impact.
A French region developed its own brand that capitalises on its culinary tradition, as well as the diversity and quality of its local produce.
