Abstract: Rural Development Plans (RDPs) are an instrument that Member States may use to target various development goals in rural areas, by means of a series of specific measures. Compared to the Direct Payment instrument, RDPs offer significantly increased flexibility because Member States are able to design the financial envelope in accordance with their national specificity while complying with the principles imposed by the latest Common Agricultural Policy (CAP) reform. By using a comparative analysis based on national data as well as on the statistics provided by DG Agriculture & Rural Development, our paper will examine how RDPs have effectively contributed to the support of sustainable development in the EU rural areas.
