Pillar 2 - Rural Development Programme
The Common Agricultural Policy's Pillar 2 – Wales Rural Development Programme gives the Welsh Government the opportunity to support rural communities and businesses, and to ensure that natural resources are used sustainably.
The Rural Development Programme will focus on:
- competitiveness (on-farm and through the supply chain)
- the Environment (agri-environmental work, woodland, renewable energy)
- community (access to service and the LEADER approach).
The European Network for Rural Development (ENRD) (external link) is the hub that connects rural development stakeholders throughout the European Union (EU).
