Worth a total of EUR 95.6 billion from the European Fund for Agriculture and Rural Development, these programmes will contribute to smart, sustainable and inclusive growth in rural areas while focusing on five ambitious goals in the areas of employment, innovation, education, poverty reduction and climate/energy, which are in line with Europe 2020 and the overall objectives for the Common Agricultural Policy.
