The creation of wetlands in the agricultural landscape can contribute in decreasing the leakage of nutrients into water bodies.
Projects & Practice
This LEADER-funded project created several small wetlands and helped raise awareness of and interest in water protection among landowners. It also contributed to increasing the amount of available water in the island of Gotland.
RDP support financed the replacement of outdated irrigation infrastructure towards improved water use efficiency, increased crop yields and reduced energy costs.
