Launched in late-2021, the NRN’s LEADER Programme Case Studies booklet tells the stories of 72 inspirational LEADER projects located throughout Ireland funded under the Rural Development Programme 2014-2020 (extended to 2022).
Through its ‘bottom up’, locally-led, framework, the LEADER Programme supports the delivery of local development actions which address the overarching needs of rural communities throughout Ireland in an innovative, integrated and inclusive manner. All 29 Local Action Groups (LAGs) throughout Ireland and their respective Implementing Partners (IPs) are represented in this publication.
The booklet is a useful resource for anybody interested in rural development and showcases projects funded across the three themes of the LEADER programme: (i) economic development, enterprise development and job creation; (ii) social inclusion; and (iii) the rural environment.
