Description of programme
"Rural Development Czech Republic"

The Rural Development Programme (RDP) for the Czech Republic focuses mainly on ensuring the sustainable management of natural resources and encouraging climate friendly farming practices, with around 25 % of agricultural land under contract to protect biodiversity, 11 % to improve water management and 12 % to protect soil. The second focus is to increase the competitiveness of agriculture and forestry as well as that of the food industry aiming to provide investment support to 3 500 farms, almost 1450 investment projects in forestry technologies and 830 projects in the food industry. The RDP will also help boosting the rural economy by creating almost 1 900 new jobs. The priorities will be completed by knowledge transfer and advisory services where almost 19 000 participants will be trained and 3 000 will receive specific advisory services.
