In response to the COVID-19 crisis, a website was set up under Rural Development Programme Technical Assistance to help match agricultural companies with jobseekers
Projects & Practice
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.
An ambitious young farmer used RDP support to create a new niche product and a touristic attraction out of his produce of mushrooms that were not suitable for the market.
LEADER funding in two subsequent projects helped a small metalware company grow its size and capacity and take advantage of new market opportunities.
