This edition of the EAFRD Projects Brochure explores how people in rural areas have used EAFRD support to respond to the challenges and opportunities presented by the recent influx of migrants and refugees into the European Union.
Without judgement on broader migration policy questions, the brochure aims to provide a picture of what is actually happening in several rural areas in Europe to deal with the evolving situation in more positive ways. It presents projects under the sub-themes of ‘changing the narrative’, ‘jobs and the labour market’ and ‘coordinated responses’.
A set of technical and practical questions and answers on planning and implementing LEADER Transnational and Inter-territorial Cooperation activities. This includes general questions, activities outside the Local Action Group (LAG) area and reference to third countries.
This is a practical guidance for LEADER/CLLD actors on the role of Local Development Strategies in implementing the LEADER/CLLD approach. This includes guidance on participative approaches to their development, an overview of recommended content and action planning.
This factsheet explores how bottom-up territorial approaches such as LEADER/CLLD can play an important role in dealing with issues of poverty and social inclusion in rural areas. LEADER/CLLD can help to identify specific problems at the local level, address these through tailor-made measures, and bring together the various actors to provide more effective solutions.
