1 Wales Rural Development Programme (RDP)

2 Wales Rural Development Programme Setting the Scene Terri Thomas Head of CAP Planning Division (presented by David McNeill)

3 Vision for the next RDP The new RDP is being designed with a sharp emphasis on promoting competitiveness and creating sustainable growth and jobs for the people who live and work in rural Wales A new suite of joined-up interventions will focus on activities that help to drive economic growth, support the sustainability of our rural communities and help to tackle poverty Sustainable development will be at the heart of our investment - supporting increased diversity and resilience in our land management and food industries, improving management of natural resources, and investing in green growth We must build a financial model for agriculture and forestry businesses that is viable for the long term Want to build on what has worked well in the current Plan but it is vital that we are innovative and experimental in the new Programme and exploit the opportunities that are available to us

4 The RDP is being built around four central blocks of activity which are: Human and Social Capital Investment Measures Area-based Measures LEADER and Local Development Our aim is to build an integrated package of support measures that can be responsive to changes in circumstances over the life of the new programme, And the proposals will be based on our priorities for rural Wales in terms of promoting greater efficiency, diversity and resilience in agriculture, safeguarding rural communities and investing in the wider rural economy.

6 The following areas could support the Life Programme: Co-operation The new co-operation fund in the Wales Rural Development Programme (RDP) will encourage co-operative solutions. Support will be a combination of grants to co-operative groups and funding of animators/ facilitators who broker and facilitate cooperative projects. This fund will assist two or more parties to work co-operatively towards a project that will: Encourage development of new products, practices, processes and technologies, in pilot projects, and to share related knowledge, and in support of short supply chains and local markets; Create Woodland Establishment and Woodland Management Plans; Fund feasibility studies for community energy projects that fall outside the scope of the LEADER and Community Rural Development Fund; Pilot projects to test means to obtain improved environmental practices, mitigate or adapt to climate change, and reduce reliance on carbon fuels; and Encourage community grown food. Bodies representing co-operative projects in environmental practices, climate change, and renewable energy will be eligible under this fund.

7 Rural Community Development Fund The objectives of the Rural Community Development Fund is to: To promote social inclusion, poverty reduction and economic development in rural areas, To fund projects targeted at those most deprived and least able to change their circumstances, To develop resilience and capabilities in rural communities so they are better able to cope with and positively adapt to change. Some of the options under this fund include: Drawing up of village development plans to build in resilience and sustainability and address key, locally identified needs, Investments in small scale infrastructure including renewable energy, Investments in relocation of activities for environmental/quality of life reasons, Studies or investments in cultural and natural heritage. The method used for this fund is: Applications will be submitted to a Welsh Government administered grant fund, Prior to submission, potential applicants must discuss their ideas and proposals with their LEADER Local Action Group(s) (LAGs), LAGs will assess the fit with their approved Local Development Strategy and may help to develop the proposals.

8 LEADER and Local Development The objectives of LEADER and Local Development are: To use the LEADER approach to encourage people to become involved in improving and developing their rural communities, To generate innovative ways of strengthening the capability of and confidence in rural areas to help sustain long-term development in Wales, To promote social inclusion, poverty reduction and economic development in rural areas. There is a Thematic Framework for LEADER: In consultation with the Rural Development Plan Advisory Group, The Welsh Government has established a broad framework of thematic options for LEADER. Local Action Groups (LAGs) can choose as many options as they like to reflect the needs of their area. The intention is to ensure the alignment of LEADER resources to key priorities while supporting the function of the LAGs as a tool for governance, enabling communities to contribute and stimulate innovation from a grass-roots level. The Thematic Framework Options are: Adding value to local identity and natural and cultural resources, Facilitating pre-commercial development, business partnerships and short supply chains, Exploring new ways of providing non-statutory services, Renewable energy at a community level, Exploitation of digital technology.
