Rural Development in the European Union - Statistical and Economic Information - Report 2007
Information needs for rural development have evolved alongside policy developments.
For this reason, the European Commission's Directorate-General for Agriculture and Rural Development now prepares a specific report aiming to provide, on a regular basis, a comprehensive set of information on rural areas and the implementation of the EU's rural development policy.
Most of the information presented in this report can already be found in various sources and documents (Eurostat databases, European Environmental Agency, DG Agriculture and Rural Development's statistical and financial reports), but it is there compiled in a structured way and integrated in a single document.

Where possible and relevant, time series have been elaborated for these indicators. Prospects are also presented for a selection of some of them.
The overview of the implementation of the rural development policy covers the programming period 2000-2006. It provides information in terms of measures monitoring on the one hand, and budget monitoring on the other hand, organised by type of instrument. The 2007-2013 programming period and the corresponding financial structure of programming is also briefly introduced.
