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 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.
