Evolution of the methods of project selection
The LEADER groups that have had the opportunity to run a LEADER I programme have been able to benefit from a system of reference for LEADER II, to draw on the lessons from the past and have good bases on which to redefine their criteria. On the other hand, the LAGs which began with LEADER II often find themselves in a relatively more defined context, leaving them less room for manoeuvre to think up solutions at local level, even if in some cases the existence of this context has enabled them to better define their intervention priorities in addition to other area strategies.
