Local financing in rural areas

[ Summary ]


Chapter 4:
Challenges for the future


4.1 Financing formulas that have already
been fully explored


LEADER has amassed plenty of experience in the use of subsidies as a lever for mobilizing and structuring rural areas around pilot and experimental activities. With regard to financing issues, all of this acquired experience can be brought to bear in consultations on: harnessing local savings, regaining the trust of local communities, LEADERís contribution to restoring a fairer balance in terms of access to resources and evaluating projects initiated by disadvantaged groups. Furthermore, issues such as strengthening collaboration, cross-disciplinary measures and raising environmental awareness are all aspects that should be taken into account when the new LEADER+ Initiative is introduced.
