Local development

COGEA’s initial core business, local development policies have always been a “laboratory” for new initiatives. COGEA’s experience in the design of territorial development systems began with Mediterranean Integrated Programmes (MIPs), the first attempt to interpret rural space in terms of integration of the agricultural sector within the specific socio-economic system.

Moving beyond that experience of 1988, COGEA has helped to create public/private partnership networks in many Italian regions, “institutionalised” through participation in “Leader” Community Initiative Programmes.

 COGEA has provided its services to over 30 different LAGs within Leader I, Leader II and Leader Plus initiatives, and to a number of regional administrations, municipalities, Chambers of Commerce, Development Agencies and Banks.
