The Rural Development Plan helps us all to maintain, enjoy and benefit from the Welsh countryside. At the same time, it tackles specific problems which affect many people in rural areas. Looking after the environment and encouraging sustainable economic development are two of the most important goals in the Plan. But creating more highly skilled jobs and supporting local community projects are high priorities too.
The Plan is the second RDP for Wales and comes with over £795 million in funding to be spent over the next seven years, including £195 million from the EU's European Agricultural Fund for Rural Development (EAFRD).
The Plan is split into four axes:
- Axis 1: Making farming, forestry & food processing more competitive
- Axis 2: Conserving our landscape & environment
- Axis 3: Improving quality of life and encouraging diversification
- Axis 4: Implementing the Leader approach, i.e. piloting of new grass-roots led initiatives that help to create a more sustainable society, economy & environment.
