Workshop: How to use the funds from the Rural Development Program
A workshop on the Rural Development Programme of Republic of Croatia will take place on September 30th in the city of Gospić, Croatia. Workshop will present the measures aimed at increasing the competitiveness of Croatian agriculture, forestry and processing industry, as well as improving the living and working conditions in rural areas. The emphasis will be on the measure 6 – Farm and business development. This measure aims to help with very high number of small agricultural holdings with weak economic sustainability and the significant migration trends of younger people from rural areas as a result of poor living and working conditions for young families, low employment opportunities due to lack of economic viability and the employment opportunities in urban centres.
Sub-measure which will be explained on the workshop are 6.1. – business start up aid for young farmers that contributes to generational renewal in the agricultural economy and helps to reverse the migration trend, especially among young people and 6.3 – business start up aid for the development of small farms which encourages the development of small farms which are potentially economically sustainable
