Micro-credit program for small entrepreneurs

Implementation of a micro-credit program for small entrepreneurs, supported and funded by Catholic Relief Services – Bulgaria (June 1999 - June2000)

Starting with assistance in the initial needs analysis in 1998, REDA was the main local counterpart in the implementation of a Catholic Relief Services-supported micro-finance program for credit cooperatives, comprised of individual micro-entrepreneurs of the community with limited or no access to formal financial services. The program has already proven to be an unqualified success, as since 2000 it has an independent office in Stara Zagora with guiding functions for the rest of the Bulgarian regions. More than 1200 micro-entrepreneurs have received micro-credits by the end of June, 2003, 750 of them – from Stara Zagora.

Green Infrastructure Network

Brochure Green Infrastructure Network

Green Infrastructure is addressing the spatial structure of natural and semi-natural areas but also other environmental features which enable citizens to benefit from its multiple services. The underlying principle of Green Infrastructure is that the same area of land can frequently offer multiple benefits if its ecosystems are in a healthy state. Green Infrastructure investments are generally characterized by a high level of return over time, provide job opportunities, and can be a cost-effective alternative or be complementary to 'grey' infrastructure and intensive land use change. It serves the interests of both people and nature.

The Commission has produced a brochure explaining the main issues of Green Infrastructure.  More detailed background on Green Infrastructure, including relevant studies with best practice examples, can be found here.
