CAP-funded cooperation catalyses more and better organic production in Tuscany.
Projects & Practice
A voluntary rescue team used LEADER support to obtain equipment to enable the volunteers to increase the range of incidents they can respond to, as well as to raise awareness among the local population about volunteering.
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.
A dairy family farm in Sweden invested in a biogas powered generator and a storage facility for substrates in order to become self-sufficient through the use of green energy.
In response to increasing demand for wood fuel, a wood processing company in Greece, used support from the LEADER measure to set up a new pellet production line.
Setting up collaborative water system measures and a governance approach to increase self-sufficiency of freshwater availability for agriculture.
Using biomass residues to produce a fertiliser, which is then used to grow trees, and will, over time, improve soil quality, has led to significant financial savings for nature conservation organisations and tree nurseries.
A transnational cooperation project to promote DIY solutions for renewable energy production in rural communities.
An EIP AGRI operational group was set up in Emilia Romagna to identify agronomic techniques that contribute to the reduction of Green House Gas (GHG) emissions in organic farming.
Refurbishment of a mountain path to stimulate economic activity and thus contribute to the revitalisation of the neighbouring rural areas.
