The PRIP project extended the national fibre-optic network in Lithuania to some of the remotest rural communities.
Projects & Practice
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.
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.
LEADER support was used to exploit the potential of using large quantities of waste wood from landscape management as a renewable energy source.
In an area where cattle breeding is predominent, LEADER funding helped explore the potentials of producing biogas from manure produced in the farms.
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.
