Structural Change in Agriculture and Rural Livelihoods


SCARLED is a 6th Framework project (STREP) funded by the European Commission.
It aims at analysing the restructuring process of the agricultural sector and the rural socio-economic trans­formation in the NMS8 plus Bulgaria and Romania. Furthermore, it looks closely at the patterns behind rural "success stories" in selected EU15 case countries during previous enlargements to identify and codify best practices. The project is coordinated by the Leibniz Institute of Agricultural Development in Central and Eastern Europe, Halle (Saale), Germany. The project duration is three years (2007 – 2009).
