26/08/2015

A further 5 Rural Development Programmes (RDPs) for 2014-2020 have been adopted by the Commission this week:

  • and for Northern Ireland (thereby completing the RDP approval process in the UK).

This means that 15 RDPs have been approved in the month of August, and that in total 78 of the 118 RDPs have now been adopted covering 76.6% of the funding.

In cumulative terms, the RDPs approved so far should generate well over 3 million training places, installation grants for more than 100 000 young farmers, agri-environmental schemes covering more than 28 million hectares and investment in broadband and ICT for nearly 14 million people in rural areas around the EU.
