Wales Rural Development Programme 2014-2020: Final Proposals

This consultation invites comments on the Welsh Government’s strategy and priorities for the delivery of the Wales Rural Development Programme 2014-2020.
Start of consultation: 17/02/2014
End of consultation: 14/04/2014

The new proposals will inform how we design the next RDP for Wales. The new RDP will run from 1 January 2015 to the end of 2020.

The Welsh Government has responsibility for preparing the RDP in Wales. This must meet three European Commission objectives:

  • the competitiveness of agriculture
  • the sustainable management of natural resources and climate action 
  • balanced territorial development of rural economies and communities including the creation and maintenance of employment.

The Welsh Government is working with key stakeholders to create a programme that meets the needs of people who live and work in rural Wales.  The “Wales Rural Development Programme 2014-2020: Final Proposals” document contains the consultation questions and an opportunity to comment.  If you prefer you can use the web form provided on the right.
