RDP support financed a series of restoration and basic works on a historic monument church in rural Romania.
Projects & Practice
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.
In order to take advantage of the enormous potential of outdoor tourism, fostering cooperation and networking among the local actors is essential.
Previously uncultivated and overgrown agricultural land was restored and was used to set up a new competitive and sustainable business.
An ecovillage was developed on Sweden’s Gotland island using EAFRD funding, providing a model for environmentally-friendly accommodation, waste water treatment, food and energy production. The site is also a template for non-consumerist approaches.
A very small island in Sweden used EAFRD support to broaden the range of services offered by a village shop by building a café area and a kitchen.
A small commune in Romania used EAFRD support to restore and promote its local landmark: a botanical garden, and design a training programme on environmental aspects for young farmers.
