PSR  (Rural Development Programme)

The PSR (Rural Development Programme) is financed by the European Union (FEASR), Italian and Region of Umbria funds. It is the instrument which defines the main strategies, goals and interventions in the agricultural, agri-food and forestry sectors, aimed at sustaining the development of rural areas in Umbria, starting 2014 and up to the year 2020.

The new PSR will be effective starting 2015 and, in any case, after the decision of the European Commission. The programme makes available 876 million Euros (90 million Euros more than the previous programme) mainly for the support of agricultural enterprises, farmers and forests in Umbria. The PSR for 2014-2020 also supports initiatives from public bodies and small and medium sized business, training and consultancy associations and public-private partnerships for community-led local development (CLLD).
