The project involved research on regional development in less-favoured regions. The study comprised three main elements: a consideration of the main demographic trends in the Member States, focusing particularly on those which affect less-densely-populated areas; a review of the definitional and statistical issues relating to less-densely-populated areas; and a discussion of policy responses in less-densely-populated areas.
