Rural areas are commonly affected by depopulation and ageing populations. This project promoted healthy and active ageing in rural areas, by offering physical and social activities for the elderly.

In response to the changing global markets, a dairy used Rural Development Programme (RDP) support to reorient its production and maintain its export potential.
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
A group of farmers in Latvia used EAFRD support to set up a mobile slaughterhouse for common use. The investment enabled farmers to respond to the increasing demand for certified slaughterhouse services at a competitive price.
