This edition of the EAFRD Projects Brochure profiles twelve participatory social and digital initiatives that are enhancing rural services in six key areas: multi-service hubs; health, education; mobility; energy; and digitisation of the village itself.

The examples showcase how rural communities can sometimes respond to the challenges they face faster than policy, using innovative funding solutions such as private sector investment and crowdfunding.

The Rural Development Programmes (RDPs) can provide complementary support to local communities at each stage of the transformation process of a rural area into a ‘smart village’: from the initial idea to successful scale-up.
