An association supporting the Region
Regionalentwicklung Oberallgäu e.V.
Rural areas all over Europe face similar challenges:
LAG - Local/LEADER Action Group
The association represents the LEADER Action Group in the Oberallgäu Region and is therefore, along with the Department of Food, Agriculture and Forestry in Kempten (AELF), in charge of the LEADER programm.
The association is responsible for the development of the region and fosters the implementation of innovative projects. Municipal representatives as well as business and social partners equally decide on the support of measures in terms of common aims and mission statements. In this process, the LAG office acts as a contact point concerning all kinds of questions.
An important aspect is the citizens’ participation both on the decision level and on the level of implementation.
Our Local Development Strategy
What is happening until 2020?
How do we want to develop? What do we want to achieve? And how can we manage this?
In an intense process politicians and citizens of the region compiled a local development strategy (LES). In it, our aims for the region and the means of their implementation until 2020 are described by four main “fields of action" under the overall aim: “...together for the future of our region”:
Adding value – together for the future of our region
1. Strengthening regional economy and competitiveness
Protecting the environment – together for the future of our region
2. Preserve natural diversity and face climate change
Enhance living quality – together for the future of our region
3. Strengthening grown society structures and link them to the challenges of demographic change
Active governance – together for the future of our region
4. Purposeful implementation of regional management
