The European Territorial Cooperation (ETC) is an objective within the framework of EU structural funding, which is financed by the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF). Through the program "Free State of Bavaria - Czech Republic (Objective ETC 2014-2020)" cross-border cooperation in the Bavarian-Czech border area is promoted.
With the LEADER program, the Bavarian State Ministry of Food, Agriculture and Forestry supports rural regions according to the motto "Citizens shape their homeland". LEADER promotes innovative projects that contribute to strengthening rural areas.
In the less-favored areas, farmers receive a compensatory allowance for income disadvantages due to natural unfavorable site conditions or other specific production disadvantages. The payments are intended to contribute to the continuation of agriculture in these areas and to the preservation of the landscape as well as to promote sustainable farming methods.
