LEADER Focus Group (FG) on better local development strategies
Rural development is an increasingly important component of the Common Agricultural policy (CAP). It includes many different themes and areas of interest including the LEADER community-led local development approach which is a well proven and increasingly popular tool within the EU Rural Development Policy. In order to increase knowledge and ensure greater effectiveness in the current and future implementation of the LEADER method, four “working groups” on LEADER have been established within the ENRD LEADER Sub-Committee. Concrete recommendations based on detailed analysis of specific LEADER... aspects have been proposed by each of the focus groups to improve the implementation of LEADER.
