Projects & Practice
Measure 15 played a key role in the protection and spreading the use of local forestry genetic resources in the Italian region of Marche.
Using the Agri-environment-climate Measure to support the preservation of the Hungarian Coldblood horse breed.
Rural Development Programme (RDP) support enabled the reforestation of land and ornamental public spaces with native forest species, while promoting environmental awareness, education and training.
An EIP Operational Group developed and tested a unique end-to-end agroforestry production process that is sustainable, profitable for the farm and the processing company, and which benefits consumers through products made in a way that supports the environment.
An EIP Operational Group worked on the reintroduction of ancient wheat species in the context of current practices applied at farm level.
Preserving forest genetic resources to increase the resilience of forests against the impacts of climate change.
A European Innovation Partnership (EIP) operational group established a network of farm incubators in Spain to support young farmers who do not have previous family connections or a background in farming.
This project combined state-of-the-art sensoring techniques and models with a participatory monitoring process with farmers and water authorities to create a common understanding of the main local challenges and possible solutions to enhance water quality. In addition, the process empowered individual farmers to become equal partners with water authorities as they gained knowledge and access to data. Problems with water management differ between regions, but the process of jointly collecting, learning from and acting on data can be applied across regions.
Setting up collaborative water system measures and a governance approach to increase self-sufficiency of freshwater availability for agriculture.
