LEADER+ Denmark


LEADER+ is an EU programme for testing new solutions on development questions in rural areas.

In Denmark, 12 areas were pointed out and included in the programme. Each area had a Local Action Group (LAG) which was responsible for its area of interests. LEADER+ Denmark assisted these LAG's in their work and secured exchange of experience and cooperation between LAG's and other rural actors at home and abroad.

The LEADER+ programme has been succeeded by the Rural Development Programme 2007-2013 http://www.landdistriktsprogram.dk/Rural_development_Programme.aspx?ID=42277

Today, IFUL does research on subjects related to LEADER and Local Action Groups, see for instance IFUL Report 9/2008 'Local Action Groups in the rural and fisheries areas 2008. Constellation, activities and cooperation in the start-up phase'.

The report is in Danish, but with an English summary.
