Projects & Practice
The creation of wetlands in the agricultural landscape can contribute in decreasing the leakage of nutrients into water bodies.
The construction of a water reservoir helped combat the more frequent extreme weather events such as heavy rainfall and forest fires due to climate change.
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.
