Leader Achievements


LEADER is one of the longest standing, most successful and popular European-wide initiatives. Originally the only one where local communities played a central role in both designing strategies for the development of their areas and selecting projects to be implemented, it is now applied more widely, beyond rural areas. This EU Rural Review explores how the LEADER principles are interpreted today by people who have been  deeply involved with implementing LEADER in rural communities across Europe.
