Research method and tools
We chose a focusgroup and in-depth interview as qualitative research methods which enabled us to check the results of the quantitative research. As research tools we used a preliminary developed guideline for focus groups and an unstructured questionnaire for in-depth interviews. About 4 focus groups and 7 face-to-face interviews were conducted within the qualitative research. 41 individuals participated in the qualitative research.

Target Group
Local Action Group (LAG) members were identified as a target group of the qualitative research. In particular, participants of the research were representatives from the general assembly and the board of LAG. It is necessary to mention that Local Action Group is composed of the representatives of CSOs, private sector and local government.
