Area-based development, a territorial approach to developmentt
The DL in AEIDL stands for Local Development. With the principles of local development ("bottom-up", "integrated", "participatory", "partnership, "locally based", etc.) having found their way into all activities promoting the sustainable development of territories, AEIDL’s activities are increasingly covering the whole scope of territorial development, including rural, urban, local and regional.
From LEADER to FARNET, AEIDL has proven expertise in the successful application of the territorial approach to development - an approach based on a permanent dialogue with and between local stakeholders and the potential beneficiaries of the various projects, and enriched by exchanges within wider networks, which encompass the local, regional, national and European levels.
