Grants for fostering the competitiveness of agriculture, ensuring the sustainable management of natural resources, and climate action and achieving a balanced territorial development of rural economies and communities.
The European agricultural fund for rural development (EAFRD), the ‘second pillar’ of the Common Agricultural Policy (CAP), is implemented through rural development programmes (RDPs) which are co-financed by national budgets and may be prepared on either a national or regional basis. Currently, the CAP is in a transitional period (2021-2022) which implies that most of the CAP rules that were in place during the 2014-20 period still apply to EAFRD, while funding is drawn from the CAP’s budget allocation for 2021-27.
The EAFRD 2021-2027 will start on 1 January 2023. 2021-2022 are two years of transition via the 2014-2020 programs.
