About the programme
The European agricultural fund for rural development (EAFRD) finances the EU's contribution to rural development programmes (RDPs).
RDPs consist of measures and projects that contribute to the EU-wide objectives of:
- improving the competitiveness of agriculture
- encouraging sustainable management of natural resources and climate action
- achieving a balanced territorial development of rural economies and communities
Programmes are prepared on a national or regional basis, and must work towards specific targets relating to the EU’s rural development objectives.
