The European Agricultural Fund for Rural Development
Examples of projects supporting social inclusion
EU Member States have been using the European Agricultural Fund for Rural Development (EAFRD) since 2007 to support a vast variety of rural initiatives that are channeled through rural development programmes (RDPs). Many such projects focus on improving quality of life through the promotion of social inclusion. Social inclusion helps to ensure equal access for individuals and communities to opportunities, rights and resources (like employment, healthcare, housing, civic engagement, democratic participation, etc.) that are normally available to society and are key to social integration.
