The heading «sustainable management and protection of natural resources» is made up of three major EU policies and funding instruments:
• the Common agricultural policy,
• the Rural Development policy co-funded by the ERDF, European Regional Development Fund,
• the Common Fisheries policy co-funded by the European Fisheries Fund,
• the financial instrument for the environment, Life+.
The Rural Development Policy, the Common Fisheries Policy and the financial instrument for the environment are all potentially of interest to cultural operators.
