LEADER approach in the Republic of Moldova
The implementation of the LEADER approach in the Republic of Moldova has started in 2016. Various organizations, which work for local development, have been carrying out the facilitating process of the LAGs creation. The model of functioning LAGs in Moldova was developed within EU SARD Programme. Moldova currently has 32 LAG initiatives.
