Ruralni razvoj

Pretežno ruralna područja čine polovicu Europe i obuhvaćaju otprilike 20 % stanovništva. No većina ruralnih područja također je među najmanje razvijenim regijama u EU-u s BDP-om po glavi stanovnika osjetno manjim od europskog prosjeka.

In order to help rural regions grow and raise employment and living standards, the European Union’s rural development policy has set three overarching objectives: improving the competitiveness of agriculture, achieving sustainable management of natural resources and climate action, and a balanced territorial development of rural areas. EU cohesion policy shares these objectives. The European regional development fund (ERDF) and the European social fund (ESF) therefore work to complement the European agricultural fund for rural development (EAFRD).
