Investing in cutting edge production techniques (hydroponics in pots) allowed a farmer to fill a gap in the market increasing the availability of vegetables in winter, with minimal environmental impact.
Projects & Practice
The largest, hi-tech hydroponic greenhouse for growing vegetables in the Czech Republic used Rural Development Programme (RDP) support to upgrade its pesticide-free production capacity.
A cheese-making facility was set up on the border between the Czech Republic, Poland and Slovakia to increase the attractiveness of the area, market local products and create new jobs for the local population.
This pan-Slovenian project is designed to combat the consequences of natural disasters that have affected forests across the country in the last six years. The project includes sustainable measures to restore damaged forests, adapting them to climate change, and is focused on areas that are under the greatest pressure.
Creation of a bioreserve consisting of a small reservoir, a retention basin, and an adjacent strip of vegetation to improve water retention in an intensively farmed area.
A young female farmer invested in the construction of greenhouses and an irrigation system to improve her farm’s profitability and mitigate production risks linked to climate change.
A small family forestry business used RDP support to acquire new machinery that would enable it to respond to the increasing demand for forest services.
The construction of two small water basins that minimise the risk of floods and offer a habitat that promotes biodiversity.
A subsistence farm used RDP support in order to become commercially viable by investing in organic production.
Building a reservoir to catch runoff water and provide protection against floods in a vulnerable area.
