Projects & Practice
GOTECFOR is an EIP-AGRI operational group that contributes to the bioeconomy by seeking to optimise the value chain of forest biomass, as a fuel for heating.
The IlmastoAreena is a unique platform aiming to bring together all stakeholders, including rural citizens, in the discussions for solutions to climate change.
As the environmental measures under the RDP in 2007-2013 were not taken up well by the farming community, LEADER was used to promote biodiversity projects across the Åland Islands (Finland) in the programming period 2014-2020.
A TNC cooperation project in which partner areas with long coastlines worked together to strike a balance between protecting the environment and opening up their areas to tourists in a sustainable way.
A family farm invested in soil conservation practices to increase its capacity to store water and its microbial biomass activity.
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.
An EIP-AGRI Operational Group was set up to develop new agronomic tools that will enable farmers to use pivot irrigation more efficiently.
The project took nature-friendly vine cultivation on a family farm a step further to develop zero-waste processing methods that valorise all by-products of grapes in a sustainable and fully circular way. The resulting seeds, oil and flour have proved very popular with customers.
Organic and biodynamic farms cooperate to jointly acquire no-till cultivation equipment to enhance soil quality, reduce pollution and maximise their soil’s capacity to act as a carbon sink.
