This edition of the EAFRD Projects Brochure explores how Rural Development Programme (RDP) funding – co-financed by the EAFRD – has been used to support the sustainable use of natural resources, particularly water and soil.

The concept of resource efficiency is based on the idea of ‘doing more with less’. In this context, the projects featured in this edition highlight inspiring practices of creating greater economic and environmental value from fewer inputs.

The European Agricultural Fund for Rural Development (EAFRD) is providing valuable support to Europe’s rural economies, encouraging a faster rate of change towards a more sustainable agricultural sector.

This document outlines the findings from six case studies on the programming arrangements related to 'Resource Efficiency' in national and regional Rural Development Programmes (RDPs). 

This document outlines the global and EU policy contexts on Resource Efficiency, as well as the main issues related to Rural Development programming and implementation.

This edition of the EAFRD Projects Brochure explores how people in rural areas have used Rural Development Programme (RDP) funding - co-financed by the EAFRD - to support actions that can be part of the ‘Transition to Greener Rural Economies’.

This transition is about taking advantage of economic opportunities that are environmentally and socially sustainable. It is also about pursuing improved environmental performance in ways that are economically and socially viable.

The projects reflect some of the breadth of relevant approaches that can be supported under the (RDPs), including: making a living from biodiversity; doing more with less; promoting green tourism; generating renewable energy from rural production; installing renewable energy infrastructure in rural areas; and cooperating for a greener economy.

This  document outlines and informs the scope  and context of the ENRD Thematic Group on ‘Resource Efficiency'. It identifies the relevant policy priorities and describes the policy programming related to the subject.

This EAFRD Projects Brochure considers the new European Union rural development priorities for the 2014-2020 programming period. It looks at existing EAFRD projects to ask what inspiration we can take from the past to help us achieve these priority objectives in the future.

The brochure refers to the ideas and achievements of more than 50 projects - implemented using EAFRD funding support from the 2007-2013 programming cycle. Of these, twelve are highlighted and presented in more detail, to reflect particular approaches to achieving the new priorities.

A wide range of different environmental services can be assisted through the EAFRD using financial support that is available to EU Member States’ Rural Development Programmes (RDP).

A selection of project examples showing how the EAFRD can help to provide development opportunities for young farmers and younger people in rural Europe.

This publication presents a set of articles about how the EAFRD can be used to sustainably develop the EU’s diverse array of different woodland resources.
