LEADER (“Liaison Entre Actions de Développement de l’Économie Rurale”, meaning “Links between therural economy and development actions”) is a European Union programme for rural development aimed at job creation and improving livelihoods in rural communities. It is based on a bottom-up approach that allows for greater social inclusion and decentralization of public policies. LEADER functions through an area-based approach, managed by formalized public-private partnerships called Local Action Groups(LAGs).
