The LEADER approach, which is a local development strategy in rural development, is among the measures covered in the IPARD Program. This measure has been prepared and implemented to ensure the learning of the LEADER approach, to establish potential local action groups and to encourage development of development strategies at the local level. The LEADER approach refers to a method for rural development to be carried out through the local rural communities and for the mobilization of these communities. LEADER approach in Turkey will contribute to the solution of the problems of rural areas by creating synergies between different sectors, ensuring that local actors are involved in the development process, providing coordination between different support programs by local development strategies established through local actors.
