Rural Development Policy in Figures

Thematic information sheets

This series of information sheets provide a clear picture of rural development policy intervention by theme, highlighting linkages between the policy’s priorities, the implementing measures and their actual outcomes on the ground.

The thematic information sheets briefly illustrate the conceptual framework behind the policy intervention (the priorities set at EU level and their translation into actions) and describe the tools (measures) though which these priorities are implemented on-the-ground. They also provide an indication of the potential beneficiaries, target groups and areas; give information on the overall budgetary allocation and expenditure at EU 27 level; indicate the outputs achieved. Finally they include specific examples of these interventions through the description of projects coming from the ENRD “projects data base”
