A sustainable bioeconomy, while it benefits everyone, has particular relevance for rural communities. The twelve projects featured in this Projects Brochure illustrate how RDPs are helping rural communities seize the opportunities offered by the bioeconomy through the production of sustainable food and feed, innovative bio-based products, renewable energy, environmentally sustainable growth and awareness raising.

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.
