Highlights report - workshop on LEADER and Multi-funded CLLD

This report summarises the outcomes of the EU CAP Network workshop on LEADER and Multi-funded CLLD. It took place in Ljubljana (Slovenia), on 18 and 19 October 2023.

A group of people standing on a ladder setting up a small wooden windmill.

This workshop provided the opportunity to exchange experiences and share practical solutions for the improvement of the implementation of multi-funded CLLD (Community Led Local Development) and give an overview of multi-funding across the EU. The workshop also gathered ideas on how to best utilise multi-funded CLLD in the future programming period.

The aims of this workshop were to:

  • Explore different approaches to and experiences of using a multi-funded approach to CLLD in the Member States;
  • Explore the main planning, design and implementing challenges which face multi-funding and identify and share practical solutions that work well at both programming and local level;
  • Highlight the specific objectives which positively suggest the use of multi-funding;
  • Understand how the uptake of multi-funded CLLD can be increased through the unlocking of dedicated funds, particularly through ERDF and ESF+; and
  • Identify next steps for facilitating the use of multi-funded CLLD, in the current and next programming period.

The workshop gathered LEADER and CLLD stakeholders from several Member States and across all four European Structural and Investment funds. It was of particular interest to Managing Authorities, Paying Agencies, National Networks and representatives of Local Action Groups.

The event also included 'travelling workshops' to visit multi-funded CLLD at local level. You can find more information about these projects and the LAGs visited in the resources section of the event page.
