The LEADER Programme in Ceredigion is being implemented by the Cynnal y Cardi Local Action Group. The LAG is made up of a three sector representation – Private, Community and Public. The purpose being to ensure a well-balanced representation of interests.

The LAG has responsibility for the development and delivery of the Local Development Strategy (LDS). The LDS has been developed following consultation with stakeholders, interested parties and the general public. The document identifies objectives, strategic priorities and actions to be undertaken. The LAG has responsibility for selecting LEADER activity and will manage a budget to support a range of activities to deliver the priorities of the LDS. Ongoing monitoring and evaluation will be a key feature of the implementation of the strategy.
