Ensuring the preservation and restoration of species and habitats in Saxony, by offering free advice and relevant qualifications to land users.
Projects & Practice
Catch crops supported by the AEC measure in Baden-Württemberg play a key role in reducing the nitrate level in the region.
Previously uncultivated and overgrown agricultural land was restored and was used to set up a new competitive and sustainable business.
EAFRD funding helped set up associations that bring together local stakeholders with diverse interests to manage the implementation of Nature 2000 conservation rules.
An ecovillage was developed on Sweden’s Gotland island using EAFRD funding, providing a model for environmentally-friendly accommodation, waste water treatment, food and energy production. The site is also a template for non-consumerist approaches.
