1 Brussels 2012 Report on ENRD Event April 2012 Local Development Strategies Lorna, David and Chris

2 Purpose Exchange info on improving the quality of LDS’s Encouraging co-operation as a key LDS component Encouraging a new wave of co-operation projects

3 General messages  LEADER is a benchmark model  Success shouldn’t be measured by spend- but how do we measure value?  LAG’s are a tool in local development, not an objective  Transnational projects expand LEADER and develop LAGs  Do LAGs want to take on any extra funding & responsibility ?

4 Key messages The Commission will define the roles for implementation at LAG, MA and paying agency level Building capacity of local actors is central – clearer definition of ‘bottom-up’ Transparent selection processes v important Clearer linkages between LDS and projects More technical LAG set up guidance- training will become a more important element at LAG and staff level

5 Key messages[2] Start development of LDS asap – process can take 6-12 months to do it properly! Build in strategic review at outset Be customer focused – difficult for customer to understand complexities Clearer definition of running costs and animation requirements

6 Key messages[3]  Strategies should be developed and funding requirements added later  Will LAG’s need to become legal entities such as Development Trusts? E.g. SECAD Multi-fund Platform.

7 Dangers! LEADER becomes institutionalised Restrictions prevent innovative and successful projects being developed Project animation becomes separated from payments Will the multi-fund approach kill the key LEADER principles or be a saviour?
