The Scottish Rural Development Programme 2014 - 2020


The Scottish Rural Development Programme 2014-2020 delivers Pillar 2 of the EU Common Agricultural Policy (CAP).  It funds economic, environmental and social measures for the benefit of rural Scotland.  The key purpose of the SRDP 2014-2020 is to help achieve sustainable economic growth in Scotland's rural areas and the priorities remain broadly the same as the previous programme:

The main priorities are:-

  • Enhancing the rural economy
  • Supporting agricultural and forestry businesses
  • Protecting and improving the natural environment
  • Addressing the impact of climate change
  • Supporting rural communities

After extensive negotiations the SRDP 2014-2020 was formally approved by the European Commission on the 26th May 2015.
