At European level, LEADER programme appeared in 1990, when the public programs for rural developmental from several countries, were limited about their investment objectives, they were managed in a traditional mode top-down (from the central level to local). Since 2007, LEADER has not represented a Community initiative, but it was been introduced as a axis in the National Rural Development Programme 2007-2013. LEADER was addressed in special to implementation the local development strategies as well as to achievement the cooperation projects, by the operation of Local Action Groups and the establishment of public-private partnerships. In Moldova, the eligible beneficiaries of this axis have applied in particular to financial support of the Local Action Groups, the most projects being implemented in Suceava County (LAG "Sucevita-Putna", LAG "Basin of Dorna", LAG "Bucovina of Mountain") and Bacau County (LAG Valley of the Mountain, LAG Valley of Trotus). A possible explanation of this situation it represents the low capacity to involvement of economic and social partners, of the local community to establish formulas for cooperation, or associations, to ensure a higher level of economic and political affirmation, according to available resources.
