The National Rural Network are stepping up our efforts to highlight and promote the beneficial outcomes of Ireland’s Rural Development Programme (RDP) 2014- 2020 by designing and producing a LEADER Project Case Study booklet on behalf of the Department of Rural and Community Development (DRCD).

This publication, which will be launched later this year, will highlight 72 inspirational LEADER project examples located throughout Ireland. The booklet will detail the main aims, objectives and background of the selected LEADER case study examples in order to help future applicants conceptualise their ideas and see what is possible through LEADER’s community-led approach to rural development.

Rural development strategies and projects are considered to be more effective and efficient if they are designed and implemented at local level by local actors. Through its ‘bottom up’ framework, LEADER supports the delivery of local development actions which address the overarching needs of rural communities throughout Ireland in an innovative, integrated and inclusive manner.

The new LEADER booklet will also feature informative infographics illustrating the geographical location of selected case studies funded under each of the three LEADER themes, as well as a case study on the Smart Villages and Rural Towns initiative. All 29 LAGs and their respective IPs will be represented in this publication.

This good practice dissemination platform is just one of a number of multi-method communication strategies being implemented by the Irish NRN to maximize the success of the objectives set out in the RDP 2014-2020.
