Scottish Rural Development Programme 2014-2020
Stage 1 Consultation document setting out initial proposals for the new programme period.
This first consultation outlines the European and Scottish context for the SRDP including the priorities for rural development. In addition the paper considers how the SRDP will align with other EU funds under a Common Strategic Framework. It discusses the investment articles that Europe allow us to use and asks which of these are the most important to Scotland, within the limited resources that are likely to be available.
