A TNC cooperation project in which partner areas with long coastlines worked together to strike a balance between protecting the environment and opening up their areas to tourists in a sustainable way.
Projects & Practice
A small rural business used RDP support to purchase new stone-cutting equipment in order to expand its range of products.
A family-owned strawberry farm in Estonia used EAFRD funding to develop the generation of solar power, enabling the farm to expand and increasing their profits.
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.
Natural potential of rural areas often remains unexploited. In Estonia the construction of a water themed park generated interest in the countryside and attracted visitors through promoting eco-tourism and environmental education.
