Danish Local Action Groups 2008

Danish Local Action Groups in Rural and Fishing Areas 2008.
is an abbreviated English version of a report on Local Action Groups (LAGs) in Denmark. In 2008, The National Network Unit in the Ministry of Food, Agriculture and Fisheries asked the Danish Institute for Rural Research and Development to do a study on LAGs including a survey of the composition of the LAGs and the activities that they had been engaged in during the initial phase of the programming period 2007-2013. The final report, which was published in November 2008, presents results from two questionnaire surveys, which were sent in electronic form to the voluntary board members and professional coordinators of the LAGs in Denmark. This report represents a first step towards gaining an understanding of, and making visible, the active persons of the LAG boards.

The report is financed by the Danish Ministry of Food, Agriculture and Fisheries, the European Agricultural Fund for Rural Development, and the European Fisheries Fund.
