What is LEADER ?

LEADER stands for "Liaison Between Development Action of Rural Economy". It is a European program that aims to support the development of rural areas carrying a local development strategy: a Country or a Regional Natural Park in the Center-Val de Loire Region. This program finances innovative actions (in terms of method, content) as part of this strategy. It also serves as an experimental laboratory for all rural areas. It is led by a Local Actors Group (LAG), composed of representatives of civil society and local elected representatives.
