Leader Cooperation Awards

   

 

Cooperation projects help all parts of rural Europe to grow together.

Leader cooperation is supported by Rural Development Programmes using the European Agricultural Fund for Rural Development.

Cooperation between rural areas is an important tool for the development of these areas. Leader cooperation encourages and supports local action groups to undertake joint actions with other Local Action Groups, or with a Local Action Group taking a similar approach.
